Offshore Angler Tightline Spinning Rod and Reel Combos
The Offshore Angler™ Tightline Spinning Reel is a saltwater warrior with aluminum frame and sideplates, stainless steel bail wire, stainless steel main shaft, a brass alloy pinion gear, and a main gear that's a coated zinc alloy to resist corrosion. Its 6-bearing system uses double-shielded stainless steel bearings and includes Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse. Unlike some reels, the machined-aluminum handle goes through the body and main gear and is screwed to the other side. The braid-grip arbor on the spool anchors your line, while a carbon fiber and TPFE drag imparts smooth, consistent fish-fighting pressure. It's a powerful, rigid workhorse that can handle multiple species of saltwater game fish.
The Tightline Spinning Rod is built to be sensitive, lightweight and incredibly strong. The blank is a hybrid of carbon and fiberglass, with great sensitivity and just the right amount of flexibility. Stainless steel guides with aluminum oxide inserts prevent saltwater corrosion, and the EVA handles are slip-resistant and lightweight.

Gave 'em a shot and am super happy!Three years ago I bought three of the Offshore Angler Tightline Spinning Rod and Reel Combo (8000 7' X Hvy rod). I like using offshore angler products because once in a while to get to the coast but I’m primarily inland and use them for catfish. I run these reels with 65 pound spider wire and my hooks will bend before I have any problems with the rod, real or line. I see quite a few bad reviews but IMHO these are some of the best quality combos you can buy. I would love if Texas would allow more than two lines per angler but for an adult, my set up is ready for any cat in Canyon Lake to any offshore shark you may come up with. I threw frozen bait several hundred yards with an air cannon and said the drag to around 35 pounds and they rock ‘n roll. As with all saltwater fishing, make sure you watch these guys down and keep them properly lubricated and the last three years. Good luck and be safe. JJ

TL3000 for Inshore FlatsI purchased two of the TL3000 combos for fishing the flats and mangroves around Tampa Bay and the Gulf from my fishing kayak. The medium-light TL3000 is proving to be the right size/weight for my inshore fishing activities. They cast smoothly with both mono and braided. No issues with the poles. One of the reels operates perfectly. However, the other reel developed a hard spot when reeling after only about three weeks; I fish once or twice a week. I'm pretty sure I do a decent job doing each post fishing cleanup. Anyway, I took it apart, cleaned and re-lubed all the internal working components. The reels come with exploded parts schematic which was very helpful. Didn't see anything weird inside but, so far that maintenance removed the rough spot. I don't see why a new reel would need that kind of maintenance so soon after purchase. Hopefully it stays working okay or perhaps this reel has a more regular maintenance requirement. Mostly, I'm pretty happy with my Offshore Angler TL3000s. Given the prices of what's on the racks for comparable products, I think the Tightline is a decent value.

Competetive Performance for an unbeatable pricePurchased the X Heavy with an 8000 series reel spooled with 30lb Tightline mono. pulled in a 50+lb red drum like a champ. Smooth casting and smoother reeling. Drag performed like a reel costing 3x as much as the entire combo. Will definitely be purchasing a matching combo to keep on the boat.

no complaintsI purchased this combo. TL8000. I took the reel off the rod and placed it on an offshore angler power stick rod. My intention was to use this for deep sea, and the pole was not sturdy enough. (I have since added another reel to the pole and use it for red fishing inshore). I have had ZERO issues with this reel. I have caught an assortment of larger fish from shark, King mackerel, and large red snapper. The only maintenance I have done is washing it down with the water hose when I get home. I have owned it for a year, and have taken it on 6 deep sea trips. Don't let the other reviews scare you away.

DisapointedThe specs on this rod were perfect for striper fishing the cape cod canal. I picked one up a few months ago and one of the guides fell out of the rod. I wasn't pleased with what that said about the quality so I returned it and replaced it with a Penn Spinfisher V combo.
I also felt like I always had to hold back on really casting 3-4 oz lures with it It just somehow felt like I'd snap the rod in half if I really threw them hard. Given that it was rated for 2-8 oz that was disappointing.

good combo for the moneyI purchased this while visiting Cape Coral, FL. I used it to surf fish on Sanibell Island and fish from the bridge. Caught a couple snook, one in the slot, and some other fish. Nothing huge all probably less than 15-20lbs this combo worked well. I had no problem with the set-up. I can't speak to longevity as it is only 1 year old. It is a good set-up for the occasional/weekend fisherman especially at this price point . Reel feels better than the rod but no issues with either.
The reel has no lever that I can find to allow the spool to reverse, how is this achieved? I love the combo otherwise, spooled it up with Power Pro line and it works great for catfish in the Rappahannock River.

are these reels completely sealed for saltwater? Is the rod rated for saltwater?
Asked by: Vincent
Thanks for your inquiry! The rod and reel are designed for saltwater fishing.
