Shimano TYR30II Tyrnos Fishing Reel

Anyone have these? Are they better than the Penn International?

Great reels. I wouldn’t compare them to an international. They cost half the price or less. Lots of captains in south Florida use that reel.

Totally different reels from the Internationals. Much lighter, smooth drags, good for stand-up fishing.

As Reeldawg said, great reels and IMHO they will handle 99% of the fish you might hook on the troll here.

I had 2 of them before. They were good reels but I’ll stick with my internationals.
