The 30W Tiagra is my go to reel for midshore NJ Tuna trolling and chunking. Super high Shimano quality. Plenty of line capacity and drag for our mid shore 20 to 100 lb bluefin and yellowfin and the two speed capability and size / weight make it a great reel for pulling in side trackers and spreader bars in a hurry when you need to clear lines.

Tiagra 50 WLRSA, 80WA, and 130A
May 20, 2019
I purchase the Tiagra 50wlrsa, 80wa, and 130a and all I have to say is that they are perfect. Beginning with the 50, I really like how it isn't so big so I can handle it very well. It is great for stand up fishing. With the 80, I am shocked by all the capacity, I was able to get a 300 yard dacron back and 700 yard braid Topshop. This makes it great for trolling, especially for Marlin. Wrapping up with the 130, the reel has a whopping 99 pounds of drag. Because of this, I can stop the biggest of fish the pull very hard.

Gigantic Reel!

This reel arrived fast. It is heavy and very high quality. I bought it for my husband's 40th Bday and he loved it. Cant wait to catch the big ones on this! This is an investment but will hopefully last a lifetime.

Great Reel for a Variety of Purposes
February 18, 2019
I bought this reel for fishing in south Florida for sharks and marlin. I have it in the 50wlrsa and the 130 size. The reel is very powerful and has a comfortable handle. The two speed mechanism is very easy to shift and the low gear ratio proved to be very helpful when fighting a 300lb bull shark. We also used the 130 on a trip to Abaco and were able to land a 962lb blue marlin. It is a great reel.
ProsPowerful, and comfortable handle
ConsNo cons

Great tuna standup Reel
January 29, 2019
This is a great multipurpose reel. If your a strictly mono kinds of guy, then this is the reel for you. I have this spooled with 80lb Ande and does great for offshore tuna. Overall this is a smooth, strong, and comfortable reel, no complaints.
ProsSmooth reel with a very nice handle.
ConsCould use a little more drag if you are targeting sword fish.

The Tiagra 130 is by far the most durable heavy tackle reel in today’s market. We have several that have hundreds of giant bluefin under their belt without any malfunctions. If you are serious about Big game Fishing then the tiagra 130 is the reel for you.

Classic reel
January 21, 2018
This is a nice reel. Solid, classic design plus functionality. Plenty of line capacity running as a 50 with option to run 80 if you don't need the extra line on mono. Use braid and your capacity is off the chart. Love the handle and ability to shift speeds easily. Take care of it and it should last forever.
ProsHeavy tackle gear for big game fish.
ConsHeavy and costly.

Tiagras are just great reels
December 29, 2017
Tiagras are one of the best reels on the market. I brought two of the 116s to add to my other six Tiagras. They are a bit heavier than many reels but will last a life time.

When you need a reel with the power to conquer some of the biggest, strongest fish in the ocean go with the Tiagra. Ruggedly reliable, unstoppable reels.

April 12, 2014
I bought one of these reels and boy was I impressed. My tiagra is built like a tank. I spooled it with 1000 yds of 150lb braid plus a top shot. I mainly use it for trolling and have confidence that it will pull anything in I hook too.
Proslooks nice. works great. two speed is wonderful
Consfeels a little heavy
