The ATD Platinum TwinDragÂ® is the Flagship series of the Accurate line. Designed with Accurateâ€™s patented TwinDragÂ® feature to deliver smooth, powerful drags, the larger ATD models put out in excess of 100 pounds of drag for targeting giant Bluefin Tuna and Marlin. These reels have been internally designed to handle high drag loads by applying an even amount of pressure on both sides of the reel with two synced dogs to provide the ultimate stopping power. The ATD offers a smooth, even drag that is consistent through the fight with little to no start up inertia, alleviating the possibility of high drag spikes when line comes off the reel. If you are looking to harness the ultimate stopping power for big game fishing, the ATD is the finest reel on the market of its kind.

with enough tension to hold large baits. Additional features include
oversized gears for power while maintaining a high-speed 5.0:1 gear
ratio, and an extra long handle shank with an oversized ergonomic rubber
power grip. Shimano Tyrnos reels are constructed with diecast aluminum
frames and graphite sideplates to reduce weight while maintaining
strength and durability.
Shimano Tiagra Reels are widely accepted as the
ultimate offshore reels by captains worldwide because of their
durability and superb performance against the biggest and baddest fish
in the ocean. With the introduction of the newer Shimano Tiagra "A"

allowing for more precise drag adjustments along with an improved
2-speed gearing system. Shimano Tiagra "A" Series Reels (Tiagra 12 and
Tiagra 16 excluded) received an offset ergonomic power grip that gives
anglers more leverage.
