NEW 2018 - Shimano TEKOTA A


NEW 2018 - Shimano TEKOTA A

Buy NEW 2018 - Shimano TEKOTA A


This is the the new redesigned Shimano Tekota A, Shimano Tekota for years has been one of our staples in the trolling industry but this new reel has really brought over a lot of our saltwater technology so that it works great whether you're trolling or you're gonna work in saltwater environment.

The new Shimano Tekota A is a small sized SW boat fishing or and/or light trolling reel. It describes it selves best as ‘a workhorse’. The reel has a levelwind system which is easy for the angler to get the line spooled well on the spool. The reel is equipped with very strong gearing, 3 S AR-B bearings, a clicker system, Hagane Aluminum Body frame and optional a line counter. The type of drag is a star drag, which is easy to adjust during the fight of a fish. Compared to the previous model, many things are new (body, looks, handle, gear ratio, drag power improved, weight slightly reduced, etc). Boat fishing, light SW trolling.

Shimano Tekota's legacy of durability continues with the new fully redesigned Shimano Tekota A from 2018. Vast improvements have been made, including Coreprotect water resist to increase corrosion resistance, an easy to replace anti-fogging lens (LC models), loud clicker and new ergonomic S-Compact body design. So it's a Tekota-A's big things s-compact body really tiny 20% diminished size on side plate makes it incredibly comfortable in your hand, they come in two models a 500 and 600 size with both either a line counter or without. This line counter has a new integrated into the side plate all one piece that's got an anti-fog lens Hagane body, magani gear and really built strong with 24 pounds of drag and the best part is 6.3 to 138 inches of line per handle turn and they even made the clicker louder. So whether you're fishing inshore stripers you're trolling dipsy divers down riggers, I mean the possibilities for this are endless and with core protect it's going to stop all of that corrosion that happens with saltwater,so this reel is good whether you're in the fresh or the salt you have to check it out that's the new Tekota-A.

Shimano come out with the new Tekota-A left-hand line counter reel and the 500 600 sizes anglers have been asking this for a long time so I'm gonna talk a little bit about this reeal. So this new 500 Tekota-A comes in a left hand model we've changed all kinds of features it's way more palmable, it's it's the 20% reduction in the size of the reel itself it has the same line capacity that we had in the previous Tekota's, it has a retrieve rate a six point three to one, which also 38 inches per crank so it's a beast very heavy duty palmable, it's got the core protect as well which is eliminates that. A big display for the line counter portion it comes in a line counter and it's both models in a 500 and a 600 the lefty and it also comes in a right hand model and it comes without the line counter as well. So lots of options for any of your trolling fishing needs it's great for jigging as well a lot of power the drag clickers a lot stronger than then in the past it's really it's subtle lot of torque to it it also has 24 pounds of drag pressure that you can go on it, still has the index drag that it actually clicks so you can tighten there loosen it by click and it's here so even with the smaller overall size the spool capacity just exactly the same yes so if you look at the chart for it it's the exact same line capacity just as 20% reduction in the size of the reel, so the footprints is that much smaller - that's awesome it's a great deal.

If you're a troller you know the word Tekota, Tekota has been our trolling reel for years whether you're looking for a line counter reel or non it's been a staple in the industry. It has finally been redesigned Tekota-A is here now this little real the cool thing about it first and foremost you look at it it's the size of the body it's got the s compact body so super small in your hand without sacrificing spool size or depth and power, hagane body core protects so it's got that water treatment that's going to allow you to use it saltwater or fresh water and for gearing six point three to one thirty eight inches of line per handle turn. The reel comes in two sizes okay this is a big one here 500 and 600 but both left and right-handed which is a first we've never had a left-handed trolling reel so other things you look at this reel to bail on two models a line counter LC model which this one has with an anti-fog lens super easy to read and it's one piece built into the metal side frame the other one non line counter so both these reels will handle anything you want to throw at them whether you're looking to fish offshore, inshore, freshwater downrigger you know if you want a Dipsy diver any of that stuff you definitely have to check out the new to Tekota-A it's available now.

Anglers in the Pacific Northwest, on the Great Lakes, and up and down the East coast have relied on the durability and trouble-free performance of Shimano Tekota star drag reels for well more than a decade. They are now being offered the newest in Shimano technology and manufacturing capabilities with the fully redesigned Tekota (TEK) 500 and 600 reels. Now more compact, more ergonomic and lighter with Shimano’s S-Compact body design (only 14.5-ounces for the TEK500), both sizes are offered in both right- and left-hand retrieve and standard and line-counter versions.

The new Tekota reels feature Shimano’s highly rigid HAGANE Body for added durability by reducing any frame distortion or flex when hooked into a big fish. For further durability, Shimano adds its CoreProtect technology to provide water resistance without creating a heavy feel when reeling. While a much-needed feature when used in saltwater situations on both coasts, Great Lakes anglers targeting salmon and steelhead will appreciate the advantage when fishing in nasty weather – especially for first of the season coho and late season big king action. Plus Shimano offers even more protection with a waterproof anti-reverse stopper.

Past Tekota reel fans will notice specific key features and enhancements to the new TEK500 and TEK600. Much asked for left-hand retrieve versions are now offered in both sizes, sure to be appreciated by anglers back trolling, pulling plugs and trolling herring in the Pacific Northwest. "We’ve heard loudly from Buoy 10 anglers over the years, and we made sure left-hand reels were part of our new Tekota design," said Trey Epich with Shimano’s product planning staff. "The drag curve is also set-up so you can tighten down when the tide is going out, and still have a silky smooth drag to fight a fish."

With the line-counter versions – for situations including shallow water fishing in the Northwest, and finding and returning to the productive water column in the Great Lakes, enhancements beyond left-hand models include an anti-fogging lens on the counter that’s easy to replace if/when needed.

All six reels feature durable cross carbon drags, shielded anti-rust bearings, and up to 24-pounds of max drag pressure. Each has a loud clicker that can be heard over the engine noise.

When first introduced in 2003, the Tekota reels (and the Talora rods) started a change in tackle dynamics. "Anglers realized there was a reel that could handle more than one season on the water," Epich notes. "Even charter captains whose tackle is used on a daily basis realized the Tekota reels can take the client abuse, perform as needed and expected, and with some standard cleaning and maintenance, are ready to go at it again the next day and the next season. We think we’ll exceed their expectations again with these new Tekota reels."

Each pulling in 38-inches of line per crank with 6.3:1 gear ratios, the TEK500, and TEK500LC reels will handle up to 240 yards of 50-pound test standard PowerPro, or 285 yards of 16-pound test mono. The TEK600 and TEK600LC hold up to 330 yards of 65-pound test standard PowerPro or 240 yards of 25-pound test mono.

This is the new Shimano Tekota line counter reel the Tekota's have been redesigned for 2019 and you can see they did a total redesign on this very much like the Shimano Torium HG. You can see it's very similar except of course, it has the level 1 feature which is the main thing you want on this reel.

If you're looking for a level wind reel this just happens, we wanted the best the old Shimano Tekota was one of the best and the new version is an upgraded version. The big change in this reel the big thing having changes the gear ratio which went from like a 4.2 up to a 6.3, which is a very very big difference which is sort of changes the reel.

In terms of what it's used for but that 6.31 gear ratio is probably a more common one for more more types of fishing than just the the lower bottom fishing one. So if you're looking for that, you know hammer of a bottom fishing reel then one of the Shimano Torium HGs would be better that most of the PGA with a low gear ratio.

But in terms of just a level 1 reel all around jigging bottom fishing salt water fishing this is it, you know, this new Shimano Tekota is super smooth. You can see it's it's really well made all aluminum frame. They've reduced the size of the side plate, so it's it's about 20% smaller than in the previous generation they did that S-curve to reduce the size of the side plate which just makes it more ergonomic more comfortable in your hand weighs in a 15.5 ounces and it got 4 ball bearings in here. It's a very smooth reel. You know, not every single reel needs to have a thousand ball bearings for to be smooth, you know, schmalz internals are always fantastic.

They do such a great job and this is just an example of that clutch on this you push back to put into free spool and then you do have to push forward to engage it doesn't auto engage when you turn the handle you start drag is right here. Star drag aluminum handle nice big egg shape knob is is really comfortable this is actually like a hard rubber one.

This one's gonna hold 390 yards of 40 pound test braid the other cool thing that they changed on this drill is the foot so the foot is a lot smaller now so you can fit it on on more modern rods instead of having that big old school foot that you that limits you as to what you can use this one you can use on a lot of different things.

So as level wind wheels go this is definitely at the top of the list it's smooth comfortable fun to fish powerful. You know, it's got 24 pounds of dragging there, so you're gonna be able to you know reel in whatever you're whatever you're catching and it's just a great reel so check it out.

Featuring Hagane Body and an S-Compact Body design, the Tekota A is more comfortable and tougher than ever. The addition of CoreProtect, provides extra protection against saltwater intrusion through water repellent seals. By increasing the gear diameter, strength has been improved by 50% when compared to the previous model.

With the growth of copper line and wire line fishing techniques within the Great Lakes salmon fisheries, anglers have been able to continue to catch fish even with ultra-clear water conditions. The issue has now become that landing fish at the end of many hundreds of feet of copper fishing line is not the best experience, especially with reels running standard gear ratios. Cold Water Wire Line reels add high-speed gear ratios and high-performance spool bearings to address the rigors of wire and copper fishing lines. These reels put the fun back in catching fish on wire and copper fishing lines.

Quick-Set Anti-Reverse
Engage the reel in one direction for rock-solid hook sets.

Patented Design stabilizes the spool shaft at 3 key stress points to eliminate flex under pressure - reel is more durable, strong and smoother than the competition.

Strong, Stable, Smooth - Okuma's Mechanical Stabilizing System is a support system that ties the spool shaft, pinion gear, pinion gear bearing, drive shaft and main gear together with a single support system. While other reels on the market offer minimal or no gear stabilization, this patented Okuma design allows all of these critical parts to stay in precise alignment. Designed specifically to hold up to the demands of braided and wire line fishing, the MSS support system stabilizes the spool shaft at 3 key stress points to eliminate flex under pressure – which directly translates into a reel that is more durable, stronger and smoother than the competition.

ERGO GRIP
The Ergo Grip handle knob is an extremely comfortable oversized handle-knob design for both speed and power. This soft-touch knob has been ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of your hand and will be found on certain Okuma lever drag reels, star drag reels and some spinning reel models.

With the growth of copper line and wire line fishing techniques within the Great Lakes salmon fisheries, anglers have been able to continue to catch fish even with ultra-clear water conditions. The issue has now become that landing fish at the end of many hundreds of feet of copper fishing line is not the best experience, especially with reels running standard gear ratios. Cold Water Wire Line reels add high-speed gear ratios and high-performance spool bearings to address the rigors of wire and copper fishing lines. These reels put the fun back in catching fish on wire and copper fishing lines.

Carbon Mechanical Stabilizing System
Patented Design stabilizes the spool shaft at 3 key stress points to eliminate flex under pressure - reel is more durable, strong and smoother than the competition.

MSS
Strong, Stable, Smooth - Okuma's Mechanical Stabilizing System is a support system that ties the spool shaft, pinion gear, pinion gear bearing, drive shaft and main gear together with a single support system. While other reels on the market offer minimal or no gear stabilization, this patented Okuma design allows all of these critical parts to stay in precise alignment. Designed specifically to hold up to the demands of braided and wire line fishing, the MSS support system stabilizes the spool shaft at 3 key stress points to eliminate flex under pressure – which directly translates into a reel that is more durable, stronger and smoother than the competition.

Learn how to use a line counter reel and what features you should look for in a trolling reel or a jigging reel with a line counter fishing reel and how to use it details about the casting recon line counter trolling reel are explained here a trolling reel with a line counter is often used for trolling for walleye, salmon fishing, striped bass fishing, lake trout fishing coconut and steelhead fishing or bumping for catfish simply said you can match the depth of your bait to the depth of the fish, this is often done with multicolor fishing line that has a different color for a section of lines usually 10 yards per color depending on the brain by counting the number of colors you let out from your fishing reel you will know approximately how far away your bait is, this fishing technique can be helped further by in line counter trolling reels because you know exactly where your bait is rather than an estimated zone that covers many yards of fishing line that can often be the difference between catching and fishing.

Those about trolling not that kind of trolling when deepth control is critical using line counter reel today’s high. Electronics will pinpoint fish at various steps and tell you exactly how deep you should be fishing getting their consistently and accurately requires a quality line counter fishing reel like the casting recon level line reel with a line counter trolling depth is dependent on these key issues number one controlling speed number two line diameter for three how much fishing line is let out behind the boat number four, we were tied and number five trolling weight diver or lead core line used there are a number of different trolling charts out there that can help you reach a desired depth but they all require the angular to know exactly how many feet of fish in line they are releasing from the reel to consistently reach the desired depths here are a few examples of these trolling charts that are readily available for English to use example number one, if you are trolling at two and a half miles per hour using a size zero dipsy diver on the zero setting and using a thirty pound braided fishing line, you’ll need to let out about eighty five feet of line to reach a depth of thirty feet example number two if you’re trolling at.

Two point o miles per hour using a six oz snap weight on 30 lb mono fishing line, you will need to let out 100 ft of.30 foot depth. At both speed line diameter and weight all effect how much fishing line needs to be released from the reel to hit a pre-determined depth and hit that depth consistently no matter which trolling technique you are using the line counter reel plays a critical role in returning to the proper depth over and over and ultimately catching more fish, even if you are not trolling a conventional level wine reel with line counter can be very effective as a deep digging reel or hover pushing to suspended fish in this case because you are fishing vertically, all you need to know is how deep the Targeted fish are.

And then using a heavy digging lure or weight to sink your bait simply drop your bait to the desired depth by releasing line and watching the line count.You’ve reached the proper depth simply engage the lever and start fishing the casking recon line counterreal as an important tool for angular targeting salmon steelhead walleye coconut stripe bass catfish or any other species that requires accurate depth control of the lures or baits, whether you are trolling or jigging, they will make you a better and more effective angler and improve your results.

Cask King recon trolling reels with more fishing line capacity are the best fishing reels for trolling with lead core fishing line and also gives you the option of fishing with heavier pound test fishing lines the size twenties. One pulls over three hundred twenty yards of twenty five pound mono or equivalent diameter braided line, if you are trolling for salmon steelhead striped bass lake trout or other large fish, you will need a conventional reel with a good amount of drag the cat king recon conventional reel size 20 with a mechanical line counter has.

Carbon fiber drag or lighter drags often don’t hold when trolling heavy lures and strong currents the size 20 casting trolling reels with line counter is equipped with a power handle which is also helpful for really in big fish the smaller casting recon size 10 has 25 pounds of carbon fiber drag and is excellent for walleye fishing they have a double paddle handle salt water if you are salt water fishing for example trolling for salmon or straight bass having corrosion resistant components in a trolling reel for salt water, such as brass gears stainless steel.

Ball bearings and a graphite fishing rope body are all needed testing recon line counter reels have those features casting recon main gears and worm shafts are made of precision breasts, it’s pinning gear and line guides shaft are high quality stainless steel both reconcile size 10 and size 20 trolling wheels feature an exceptional accurate mechanical line counter with a reset button that measures line out in feet both casting wheels have a line clicker function that makes releasing planer boards simple and easy you can use that feature as a strike.
