Shimano® Torium® Casting Reel

7 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of getting one. Where can I see and hold one before buying it.

This is the Shimano Forum isn't it. smile

No way can I justify a Trinidad.

No, I'm at this forum because the Torium is a Shimano reel and this forum seem to be the hangout of one person who could tell me where to find one.

I need a high speed reel to throw 1oz and up. So i'm talking 80-100lb braider line. It will not see use every day but will need to be on call when ever I'm on the water.

At a price near that of a Corado, I think the Torium would be just what I would need.

If you can help me get a first hand look at one please post it on the Muskie forum. I have the same post there.

Muddie- thanks for the kind words, I cant take all that much credit, I took a couple of mins to send a few e-mails..

The MPLS Sportshow is at the MPLS convention ctr, and is March 11th through the 15th...

I will either be at the Shimano, Gamma, Nature Vision, or one of the store booths, selling one of those products... I love to put screen names to faces, so if you are there, please look me up. Ask at the Shimano booth. They will know where I am.

Glad to help out!

    • http://shareblue.com/every-outlet-wh-banned-from-press-briefing-is-chasing-stories-on-trumps-russia-ties/   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
