Shimano Tyrnos Overhead Reel
The Shimano Tyrnos range is a perfect range of reels for Shimano game fishing enthusiast who want a quality game reel outfit but don’t want to necessarily pay for the more expensive Tiagra.
The Shimano Tyrnos is incredibly versatile giving the angler the ability to troll for Spanish Mackerel, drop baits for tasty eating fish such as Coral Trout or floating baits out to circling sharks.
The 16 holds 475 metres of 9kg, although as the model number suggest, they would also make superb 8 kilo [16lb] game reels. The drag at strike while retaining adequate free spool is 6kg, while the maximum drag at full (sunset) is 15kg, so you could fill them with heavier braided line and use them for non-IGFA fishing as well. With no cross-bar to get in the way, extra stopping power via thumb pressure can be easily applied if such a situation warrants. The gear speed for models up to the 30 size is a uniformed 5.0:1.
The single speed versions have alternating twin pawl anti-reverse mechanism while a comfortable ergonomic handle makes for a comfortable fight.
