The new Tern2 has the same solid features as its predecessor with new improvements taking it to another level of Star Drag reel.  The Tern2 has the Twin Star Drag technology that is the first of its type in a star drag reel.  The dual surface drag is smoother and more powerful.  The Tern2 also has an (MGBS) Main Gear Bearing support system for a smoother, stronger operation.  With all the added features we also designed (XCT) Xtreme Casting technology for longer more precise casts with fewer backlashes.  This has been tested all over the world with excellent results.  The new Tern2 is ready for time on the water.

Salmon slaying in Alaska

Bought a 500x right before my annual trip to Alaska. This reel did NOT disappoint. From Cohos to Kings, this reel was exceptional. Great reel, and made in the USA! 🇺🇸

More line than expected

I just got my Tern 2 600 today and got it spooled with regular moss green power pro 65lbs. We’re already at 600 yds. and still have room for another 100-150 yds. if you wanna top it off hehehe. So far happy with all my accurate reels.

Great product
Got 6 months ago a 500N for Jigging and SPJ in Yucatan Mexico.
performance has been perfect for AJ, Black fins, Afrincan Pompanos, and even for deep drop queen snappers.
5 stars for the Tern2 500N

Great quality as usual, bought it for salmon season but our 2023 season is closed

Angelos, yeah that one
Black and red Tern 2 400x is a superhero

I bought it less than 2 months ago and I have 4 smaller bluefin tuna on it. This reel is a beast. Everything you need and nothing that you dont. I am leaving this review omky because I came to check line capacity for the 500x, in the mahi mahi color, which just arrived at my door today.
I know its january, but I really hope the old glory gets off the dock this friday so I can try out my 500x too!!! Happy new year! Tight lines!
