Super Stopper

Super Stopper uses a one-way,
stainless steel roller bearing that
eliminates backplay. This provides
the angler with instant hooksetting

E.I. Surface Treatment

With E.I., after the anodization
process is finished, a second layer
of surface treatment is added. This
Treatment is forced into the
remaining surface impurities. This
gives salt no hideout, and also
results in an extremely
smooth-to-the-touch finish. (So
don?t forget to back your spool with
tape or a few wraps of mono before
installing your PowerPro A reel with
the E.I. Surface treatment has more
than double the corrosion
resistance of a standard anodized
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 rotation.
Super Free (SF)

The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear
system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on
the spool shaft during the cast. In standard
baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed
down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually
drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and
limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion
gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the
clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool
shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is
zero friction on the spool shaft for increased
Variable Brake System (VBS)

VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to
aid in controlling the cast. The individual brake
weights, when turned on, are forced outward at
the beginning of the cast when backlashes most
often occur, causing friction that reduces the
speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins
to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool
to continue spinning. The result is a much more
consistent spool speed that is easier to manage
and takes advantage of the reel's maximum
casting distance. Settings range from zero
weights turned on for true freespool and up to 6
weights turned on for extremely windy conditions
and maximum cast control.

X-Ship provides improved gear
durability. By supporting the pinion
gear on both ends with bearings,
the pinion gear maintains precise
alignment with the drive gear. This
means the gears will stay in the
same position under the heaviest
loads. The added benefit is that
friction between the spool shaft and
gear are eliminated. This will
enhance the casting performance
of the reel with lighter lures, and
allow for longer casts.
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.

With a 5.2:1 Gear Ratio the TLD Star Drag offers a
little more power than the Speedmaster without
sacrificing much retrieve speed. 2 stainless steel
ball bearings ensure smooth operation while a
sturdy one-piece graphite/titanium frame, aluminum
spool, solid stainless steel reel foot and strong
stainless steel main and pinion gears with a power
knob and handle help transmit power directly to the
line. A smooth ball bearing titanium drag and loud
strike alarm help you to fight fish with ease.
Solid and light weight, with A-RB® Bearings, the
star-drag TLD® reel is a great multi-purpose
offshore reel.
This Shimano TLD2040S Star Drag Reel will
benefit both beginning and experienced anglers.
This high-quality saltwater fishing reel features two
stainless steel sealed ball bearings that prevent
rust and provide smoothness, support and stability.
This reel is equipped with a lightweight graphite
frame that makes it easy to control and transport. It
also has an aluminum spool that gives it superior
strength and durability. It features a high speed
5:2:1 gear ratio that enables you to work your lures
faster and better. Faster retrievals mean more
strikes. However, if the fish want a slower
presentation, all you need to do is simply slow
down. It is rated for use with mono, fluorocarbon
and PowerPro lines. Solid and lightweight, this
fishing trolling reel is a handy multi-purpose
offshore reel.
