Tekota's legacy of durability and performance continues with the fully redesigned Tekota A lineup of reels. Shimano engineers overhauled the legendary Tekota to enhance the overall performance and durability of these battle-tested reels with improved gear strength and faster line retrieval. The Tekota A lineup now features CoreProtect for increased corrosion protection and a Cross Carbon Drag for increased stopping power when targeting hard-fighting fish. Built upon a HAGANE Body for increased durability and reeling performance, Tekota A models feature a loud clicker and ergonomic S-Compact Body design for enhanced in-hand comfort. For 2022, Shimano adds to the previously redesigned 500 and 600-size Tekota A reels with an all-new 800 size for increased line capacity and stopping power.
