The Accurate Tern is a great reel, have the 400 and it casts great but my vote would definitely be the tranx 500Was looking hard at the Tesoro but leaning Penn 25N now with the 4.8 gear. Curious about the Accurate stars too, and curious nobody talking about them.
What, you expect a Tern to be an upgrade over a trn20? Open the spool bearings and lube them with some TSI-321 and you’re as golden as the reels.I haven't bought a new iron reel since I got gold trini's when they came out. Thinking I'll get a Tern. What size is comprable to a trini 16 & 20? Don't got anywhere to fool with them around here.
Torium hg’s Just aren’t as smooth as the Goldie’s IMO. I normally leave my Torium 20hg at Home and fishing my fathom 25n and Saltist 35 bg. They have been the dedicated iron reels for a few years now. Bait fishing though I fish a Trinidad 14a & 20a.Used Trini Gold 20 for LONG time, nothing better. Read that all the Trini Gold gearing etc. was now incorporated in the ToriumHG's. Bought one two years ago (a 20HG), man it's great, and so cheap, for a great jig reel. Started with Penn 500's I tweaked, 50 yrs ago, then went to Newells, then to Trini Golds, and now, Torium 20HG, smooth, small, powerful and inexpensive. IMO.
