standard Stainless Steel ball bearings.
• Easy Maintenance-no shield design allows for easy
flushing of debris and easy lubrication.

ultimate offshore reels by captains worldwide because of
their durability and superb performance against the

allowing for more precise drag adjustments along with
an improved 2-speed gearing system. Shimano Tiagra
"A" Series Reels (Tiagra 12 and Tiagra 16 excluded)
received an offset ergonomic power grip that gives
anglers more leverage.For over 20 years now Shimano

Shimano Tiagra A Model# TI12 Reel
Shimano's Tiagra Conventional 2-Speed Saltwater
Reels deliver the smooth and unrelenting power today's
performance-minded big game fisherman rely on. Every
Tiagra Conventional Saltwater Reel is machined from
solid 7mm pipe stock aluminum for relentless strength
and secure alignment under duress. Features smooth
push-button shifting backed by permanently lubed A-
RB® Anti-Rust Bearings for easy handling at all times.
Traditional style drag curves on most models provide an
area of low drag pressure just above strike level—great
for holding baits in the wake, but light enough to reduce
the chances of pulling the hook out of the fish's mouth.
LRS models feature a special drag curve for fishing
heavy lines with extra-tight drag settings.
