The Tyrnos range has been very popular with light and medium tackle enthusiasts wanting Tiagra performance without the Tiagra price tag. For light line classes the Tyrnos 8 & 10 are perfect for our style of fishing. Beautifully crafted fish catching machines, high quality and very versatile, they excel at a number of fishing styles and techniques.
Tyrnos 8 & 10 Single Speed Sets $299.99 - The Tyrnos 10 reel has the same performance specifications as the Tyrnos 8 but is slightly wider giving you the option to use heavier line classes (up to 30lb mono or 30lb/15kg braid) and it weights just 9 grams more. Ideally the Tyrnos 8 would be fished with 10-15lb braid becuase of the the lighter rod it comes with.

The Shimano Tyrnos 10 II is a lever drag reel well suited to a variety of New Zealand’s inshore fishing applications, particularly where anglers are wishing to take on kingfish, snapper or tuna with a lightweight, compact and powerful reel capable of withstanding the rigours of protracted battles with large fish on either traditional monofilament or Power Pro lines.
Utilizing Shimano’s two speed lever drag system, the Tyrnos 10 II offers anglers versatility and confidence when targeting kingfish on livebaits or jigs, stray lining big fresh baits and slow jigging for XOS snapper or trolling lures for tuna - this real has it covered.
Having the option of retrieve speeds (6.0:1 and 3.5:1) the angler can select the low gear once hooked up to a stubborn fish to make it easier to gain line back on the reel or high gear when wanting to really crank in a jig to attract the attentions of predatory species like kingfish or to quickly reset the drop during a hot bite.
The Tyrnos 10 II will appeal to those anglers that fish in the Hauraki Gulf, Bay of Plenty and Northland that are looking for afford ability, versatility and is a solid performer.
