The Torium is Shimano’s flagship star drag multiplier range with a mid-range price. The lightweight, compact construction and high speed gear of 6.2:1 enable you can use the Torium for a wide range of methods including jigging, bottom fishing and even casting large lures and leads.
If you’re in the market for a reliable and high performing small multiplier reel from Shimano, the Torium is a great option and offers exceptional versatility across a wide range of fishing methods. Available in both left and right-hand wind options, the quick retrieve is great if you are a deep water or jig fishing fan, with more than enough strength to overcome the largest of bottom dwellers. Alternatively you can pair it with a lighter rod for slow pitch jigging or even casting with larger lures and leads.
As soon as you hold the Torium you can feel the manufacturing quality produced by the lightweight HAGANE Body. It feels solid and strong, whilst also being very compact thanks to the S Compact body design. In fact its visual size belies the power and line capacity of this perfectly formed super fast multiplier. With a gear ratio of 6.2:1, all but the smallest 14 size retrieves well over 1 metre of line per turn. Using large Cross Carbon Drag washers, adjusted by the Star Drag, the Torium packs a minimum of 11kg of drag into its tiny frame, making it a match for all but the very largest pelagic fish.
