The TLD and TLD II offer a combination of value and history to match any competitor. Within the range are models suitable for saltwater trolling, bottom fishing or jigging, with the smaller size single speed versions being hugely popular with freshwater anglers fishing for the largest of predators.
Shimano TLD reels immediately stand out as lightweight, versatile models with an incredibly affordable price tag. Whilst they don’t have the sophistication of their more expensive brothers, their effective simplicity, in either single or 2-Speed lever drag options, is hugely appealing to anglers of all abilities. If you are looking to own your first multiplier, or are an experienced angler looking to add to you arsenal, TLD still remains one of the most compelling choices based on value and quality, as thousands of anglers worldwide will testify.
The TLD range is built on a reliable graphite composite frame, which is lightweight and corrosion resistant to complement the stainless steel gearing. Internally there are four top quality anti rust (A-RB) bearings, plus a roller bearing, to keep the durable aluminium spool running smoothly in all conditions. The smaller sized single speed TLD’s can be used for a wide variety of methods using braid or mono, in both saltwater and freshwater, whilst the larger TLD II (2-Speed) models have more powerful drags and are better suited to trolling for the largest, most powerful fish.
