A-RB bearings are stainless steel ball bearings that
have been through the A-RB treatment process which
makes them at least 10 times more corrosion resistant
than standard stainless steel ball bearings.

•A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) are made of Stainless
Steel that has been through the A-RB process.
• At least 10 times more corrosion resistant than
standard Stainless Steel ball bearings.
• Easy Maintenance-no shield design allows for easy
flushing of debris and easy lubrication.
•Increased Bearing Speed-no shield design and
lighter viscosity lubrication reduce friction and allow
the bearing to spin faster and longer.
Cold Forged Aluminum Spool

These spools provide increased
strength and durability over diecast
aluminum or graphite spools.
•Specially treated A-RB Anti-Rust Bearings—at least
10 times more corrosion resistant than standard
stainless steel bearings
•Metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment
for increased efficiency and durability
•PermaLube lubrication for effortless freespooling and
long-term protection
•Ratcheting drag lever eliminates play due to boat
•Twin Disk Drag System (Ti16 and Ti130 only)
effectively doubles the drag surface for a wider range
of settings and increased durability
•Offset ergonomic power grip with soft, nonslip
Septon® grip (all models except Ti12 and Ti16)
allows natural hand, arm and wrist angles for greater
power and comfortLine recovery in inches per handle
High Effeciency Gearing (HEG)

HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the
frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. First we
increased the size of the drive gear and the pinion
gear to offer increased leverage and power. By using
a one-piece frame that incorporates the setplate and
adding a one-piece stamped sideplate, we have
eliminated flex in the drivetrain that causes normal
gears to bind under pressure. By eliminating the flex
and increasing the leverage, we are able to provide
high-speed retrieves and deliver an incredible amount
of torque, while maintaining the smooth, silent retrieve
Shimano reels are famous for.
S A-RB Bearings

These bearings have been
through the same process as our
A-RB bearings, but feature shields
on both sides of the bearings that
reduce the possibility of salt or
sand inhibiting the bearing's

Have you ever thought, "I wish they'd put a
levelwind on these TLD's so I wouldn't have to level
it myself!" The same quality that makes TLD's such
great reels can be found in Shimano's Charter
Special TR-2000LD Reel. Stainless steel gears are
durable and resist corrosion in saltwater, and the
Charter Special's 3 stainless steel A-RB (Anti-Rust
Bearings) ensure many years of reliable service.

Sometimes it's not such a bad idea to have a
levelwind feature on your downrigging reels so all
you have to think about is winding frantically. Nor
does it hurt to have a solid, one-piece graphite
frame, a large drag surface and your choice of lever
drag on Shimano's Charter Special or star drag on
Shimano's TRN. And you can even use both reels
for light saltwater applications. Overall, it just makes
the whole process a lot less complicated.
Reel Levelwind is ideal when it comes to the art of
downrigger fishing. by nature of their design, Lever
Drag reels have larger drag surface areas that perform
more efficiently. The durable and reliable water The

shielded ball bearing titanium drag will perform under
the most adverse conditions. A preset knob lets you
lock in the strike position, so that you can instantly
return to this position after making any drag
adjustments. Reels feature one-piece graphite/titanium
frames, high speed retrieve, stainless drive and pinion
gears, stainless main shaft and reel feet, strike alarms,
aluminum spools, and (4) stainless steel ball bearings.
