is the best fishing reel a shimano torium 30 for tarpon kingfish grouper redfish snapper and sailfish?
please tell me
(In my opinion), the Shimano TLD or TLD 2 Speed is much more versatile than the Torium.
The TLD 2 Speed is a fantastic “upper-middle” range reel that has the ability (and gearing) to tackle Kings, Grouper, Sails, Etc.
I’m guessing you want this reel to swing double duty as a bottom bouncer as well as a troller?
Definitely the TLD 2 Speed!
(If you were only gonna troll for Kings, Mahi, Sails, Wahoo, Etc ONLY I’d suggest you save your money and buy TWO Shimano Speedmasters!)
PS- I guess people have had good luck with the Daiwa “Saltist”. You might look at these too. Go to http://www.basspro.com
UPDATE: Although the TLD is more expensive it does have 2 speeds. When you are trying to get a 30 LB Grouper away from his hole a lower gear reel comes in mighty handy! On the other hand, you need a faster retrieve to gain line on a Sail, Wahoo, King, Tarpon, Etc. You would spend more on a bottom fishing reel AND a trolling reel……………..
