The latest Shimano Tekota 800PG A Level Wind Overhead Reel continues Tekota's legacy of durability. Just like its predecessors, this reel features the impact-resistant HAGANE Body and the Cross Carbon Drag that can stand up to heat and wear. The new Tekota's S-Compact design reduces the size of the sideplate by 20% so you get a more comfortable hold. This reel's new Coreprotect feature adds water-repelling seals so the body, clutch, and ball bearings won't corrode. The added bearing support of the Shimano Tekota 800PG A Level Wind Overhead Reel increases max drag and retrieve per crank so you can fight fish more easily. Feel the difference of this reel on your next fishing trip.
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.
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.
S A-RB Bearings
S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano's A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting rotation of the bearing.

Great reel, plenty of drag to stop those big fish, way better than the old Tekota 800s
