Shimano Tuna and Marlin Game Fishing 15kg Combo Tiagra 30A and Switchbait 3050
This Shimano Game Fishing Combo is the perfect high end light game fishing combo, suited for light marlin trolling and live baiting, as well as light tuna trolling. This combo comes spooled up with braid backing and a mono top shot for maximum line capacity, so you never have to blink an eye about running out of line. The Shimano Switchbait rod range is suited to running braid for game fishing as it has no rollers for your braid to potentially get jammed in, and the tiagra 30 is the most reputable game reel in the world and super reliable for many years with massive line capacity holding braid. The braid spooled on the reel is approx. 1000m of 65lb J Braid X4 which is very strong, abrasion resistant and long lasting, with top quality Momoi IGFA 15kg Mono Topshot of approx. 250m, connected by a PR or FG knot.

– Shimano Tiagra 30A Overhead Reel
– Shimano Switchbait 3050 Stand Up Overhead Rod

– 250m of Momoi 15kg Topshot
Shimano Tiagra 30 A Overhead Fishing Reel
As we all know, one of the fundamental aspects of this sport is that the fish we seek are capable of fighting for hours, repeatedly making long runs that can really heat up a drag. This can cause the settings to change, leading to insufficient pressure being put on a fish or, at worst, a broken line. Fortunately, Shimano’s Hydrothermal Drag System automatically compensates for any heat buildup, thereby maintaining the original drag setting. What’s more, the Tiagra’s pre-lubricated graphite drag washer is impervious to salt water and will always operate smoothly. The leverage created by an angler in a game chair or stand-up rod bucket and harness with a big fish on the end of the line creates an enormous amount of pressure. That’s why the Tiagra’s one-piece frame is machine-cut from aluminium tube to a thickness of seven millimetres. It’s also why Tiagra has A-RB bearings, heavy-duty stainless steel gears, and a two speed shifting mechanism where the pinion and drive gears are continuously meshed. The Shimano Tiagra also features a calibrated pre-set drag knob, which has detents that adjust in approximately half-pound increments. It is, however, only a reference guide to be used when setting the drag, and is no substitute for doing it through a loaded rod with a set of scales. At 89 decibels, the ratchet is also the loudest of any production reel. The Tiagra ‘A’ series feature heavy gold anodising, a drilled drag quadrant with a drag curve suited to Australian conditions, and a specially designed rubberised power handle. The heavier anodising makes them highly resistant to the ravages of salt water, while the click stop drag quadrant permits more precise drag adjustments. The counter-balanced handle falls easily to hand to make winding easier, and its rubberised ‘tackiness’ combats sweaty palms, which can be a problem during the course of a long fight or when fishing in tropical waters.
