Shimano Torium HGA Reels

Shimano Torium HGA ReelThe new Shimano Torium HGA is a powerful compact saltwater conventional reel that is packed with features and the durability demanded by saltwater anglers. This reel is a standout performing saltwater fishing reel for a variety of species from inshore striped bass and bottom fishing to deep water wrecks to bluewater live bait fishing and jigging. It offers excellent castability!


When comparing an old Shimano Torium to the new Torium HGA one can see lots of improvements. First and foremost it is light (2-3oz lighter than predecessor), compact/comfortable in the hand (S-Concept Body) and has a very beautiful smooth finish (E.I.).


The S-Concept Body is a key element to the Shimano Torium HGA reel which results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand. It also offers a rigid, stronger and more durable body.


Shimano's proprietary E.I. surface treatment after anodization drastically improves the corrosion resistance of the reel. The E.I. treatment eliminates all micro surface impurities leaving no place for salt to adhere, as a result doubling the corrosion resistance Shimano Torium HGA Reel - Handle Sidecompared to a standard anodized reel.


The features that are internal and not seen are important too! The Shimano Torium HGA Series features a "cross carbon drag" offering more max drag (24-lbs, 2-lbs more than the old dartanium drags) and better long term performance with super smooth and consistent high drag pressures. The New Torium HGA has the same high speed 6.2:1 HEG (high efficiency gearing) for fast yet powerful cranking with amazing leverage. It also has the same rock solid Super Stopper anti-reverse utilizes a one-way clutch roller bearing that eliminates back play and provided the angler with instant hook setting power. Even though the Torium HGA has a stylish new handle with an ergonomic grip, Shimano also kept the angler favorite multi-position handle feature.

The Shimano Torium TOR-HGA is anticipated to be available March/April 2015.
