Tibruon Reels

Tiburon SST 6-50

What's the biggest problem with two speed reels? In the time it takes to switch a reel to high retrieve when a fish charges the boat it, it's already spit the hook. That could all change with Tiburon's new "Smart Shift" reels. An internal friction driven clutch changes the retrieve ratio automatically depending on the amount of pressure a fish exerts-all within a split second. What does that mean? A white marlin will always have steady pressure, whether he dogs down or runs at the boat. Push the star on the right plate forward to increase the pressure required to change gears. Drag is controlled by a traditional lever and set with a knob on the left plate. Price: $640
