Shimano Torium 20A HG + Shimano Vortex Overhead Boat 10-15 kg Rod
Shimano Torium 20A HG Overhead Reel is a solidly built star-drag saltwater reel perfect for live bait or bottom-fishing applications. Packed with features like Super Stopper, Cross Carbon Drag, A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) and High Efficiency Gearing (HEG), the Torium has it where it counts.
Super Stopper anti-reverse uses a one-way stainless steel roller bearing that eliminates back-play. This provides the angler with instant hook setting power.
A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings)
These stainless steel ball bearings are specially treated to drastically increase the corrosion resistance of the bearing. These bearings will last at least 10 times longer than standard stainless steel ball bearings in high salinity environments.
High Efficiency Gearing (HEG)
HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the frame, set plate, and handle-side side plate. Shimano 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 set plate and adding a one-piece stamped side plate, you don't need to worry about your gears binding under pressure.
Power, rigidity, durability. A key element the the new Torium reels, the S-Concept body results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand! The B-sideplate (A-side has the handle, drag adjustment and cast control knob) is all one-piece, contributing to both rigidity and in-the-hand palming comfort.
CF Aluminium Cold Forge Spool
These spools provide increased strength and durability over die cast aluminium or graphite spools.
