Tiagra reels feature an innovative hydrothermal drag system that virtually eliminates the drag setting variances that affect today's big-game reels. The Tiagra series offers the strength and reliability of a solid aluminum frame, making these reels ideal for fishing with heavier line for giant fish. These reels are also perfectly suited for long-range fishing.

HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. First we 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 setplate and adding a one-piece stamped sideplate, we have eliminated flex in the drive train that causes gears to bind under pressure.
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing on the reel while fighting fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power, increasing efficiency through strength.
Shimano's proprietary EI surface treatment of the spool and body creates corrosion resistance that is more than double compared to conventional surface treatments.
CROSS CARBON DRAG
The Cross Carbon Drag material provides a wider range of drag settings compared to traditional drag materials. The Cross Carbon Drag provides the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever while providing anglers with increased durability.
A-RB 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.
