The Tekota is a small sized SW boat fishing or and/or light trolling reel. Best described as a workhorse. The reel has a level wind system which is easy for the angler to get the line spooled well on the spool. The reel is equipped with very strong gearing, 3 SAR-B bearings, a clicker system, Hagane Aluminum Body frame and optional a line counter. Star drag makes it easy to adjust drag settings during a fight with fish. Compared to the previous model, many things are new (body, looks, handle, gear ratio, drag power improved, weight slightly reduced, etc). Suitable for Boat fishing and light SW trolling.
