Leave it to Shimano to build the perfect vertical jigging system that allows ANY angler to be effective jiggers right from the get go. The Shimano Trevala Jigging rod series is designed to be fished with the Shimano Butterfly jigs.
This system stems from the extremely productive Japanese style of vertical jigging, combining lightweight, light action, yet powerful rods with high speed, high power reels, Spectra-type no stretch lines, fluorocarbon leaders and unique compact Shimano Butterfly style jigs with aggressive actions and free-swinging hooks.
Shimano Torsa Reels are the perfect jiggin reel, possessing the largest gear Shimano could build - 22% larger than the Shimano Trinidad drive gear and 67% larger than the Shimano TLD 25. The amount of power generated by the Shimano Torsa drivetrain, oversized handle shank and Ergonomic Power Grip is unbelievable. Super Stopper one-way roller bearing with Assist Stopper back-up ratchet anti-reverse system creates unmatched reeling power. The system has no backplay for solid hooksetting power and the reliability of two anti-reverse systems. The oversized drag washer, can generate incredible drag pressures for a reel its size, using the same proven material used in Tiagra series.
These Trevala/Torsa Jigging combos combine the Torsa 16N, the ideal jigging reel, with specially matched Trevala 2pcs. Jigging/Travel rod. These setups are ideal for anglers traveling the world looking for Tuna, Amberjack, Trevally, Grouper, etc. while using a powerful, lightweight setup. They are compact and versatile.
The Narrow design of the Torsa 16N allows anglers to focus on fighting fish and not worrying about stacking line.
