A favorite trolling reel is now more impressive than ever. The Shimano Tekota A Levelwind Reel has been redesigned for more seaworthy performance and better handling. Shimano has reduced the Tekota A's overall footprint by a whopping 20%, incorporating its S-compact body design to ensure a comfortable, ergonomically-driven fit and feel in the hand, with no loss of power or performance. And this powerful reel now features advanced Coreprotect water resistance technology to prevent contaminants from getting inside the reel, ensuring smooth operation and long-term corrosion resistance. Meanwhile, the Shimano Tekota A Levelwind Reel offers the same great features that have made it popular with charter captains: rigid, all-metal Hagane Body for flex-free performance under heavy load; smooth 3+1 system with premium S-ARB shielded anti-rust ball bearings; powerful drag system with up to 24 lbs. of max drag; high gear ratio for quick fish landing and resets; and an extra-loud bait clicker that can easily be heard over the motor noise. The improved comfort, speed, power, and durability of the Tekota A is sure to make every day on the water more productive.
Hagane Body: Is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
S A-RB Bearings: These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing’s rotation.
Coreprotect: The concept of Coreprotect is simple… to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection; the roller clutch, the body and the line roller.
S Compact Body: Power. Rigidity. Durability. The S-Concept Body feature results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand
Cross Carbon Drag: This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
