Details & Specs

Shimano's hardest fishing saltwater reel.

Serious about saltwater? The Shimano Tekota™ is too. Built from the ground up for hard-cranking durability and the ravages of salt water.

Here's the proof:
  • Diecast aluminum framekeep moving parts in precise alignment for increased efficiency and durability
  • Stamped aluminum right sideplate for strength, aluminum braced graphite non-handle side plate for light weight
  • Aluminum spool provides increased strength and durability
  • A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) are specially treated stainless steel ball bearings that are at least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings
  • Super Stopper one-way roller bearing eliminates backplay for solid hooksets... Assist Stopper back-up anti-reverse system reduces the stress placed on the roller bearing to increase durability.
  • Manual clutch (excluding 500LC and 600LC which are Auto-Return)
  • Dartainium drag material provides a wide range of drag settings and the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever
  • Oversized cast control knob is comfortable and easy to use
  • Clicker increases tension on freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites... oversized clicker button easy to turn on and off
  • Septon handle grip material is soft to the touch and does not get slippery when wet
  • Counter balanced handle (excluding models 700 and 800) puts weight on the opposite side of the handle shank from the grip - wobble during retrieves is eliminated.
  • Adjustable handle shank (only models 700 and 800) allows the angler to use the handle in the short position for fast retrieves, or the extended position for more cranking power
  • Optional double paddle handle allows the angler to purchase, as an accesory, a double paddle handle for certain applications (Available on 500, 500LC, 600 and 600LC only).
  • Non-disengaging levelwind system lets the levelwind track back and forth during the cast which reduces drastic line angles that cause unwanted friction and backlashes on wide-spool reels
  • Palmable linecounter with maintenance port (only 500LC and 600LC) for comfortable palming of the reel, easy maintenance of the counter mechanism, and easy, one-handed resets
  • Crossbar forward design allows more access to the spool for better line control and provides more comfort when palming the reel.
