Buler, anyone?
I'd like to get a couple of TLD 10's , but the catalogs don't have them anymore. The 15 is the smallest I have seen recently. I already have a TLD 5, a 10, and two 25s. I really think they are great reels, very dependable,and the lever drags beat teh hell out of stars, IMHO.

They discontinued them several years ago. You can still find them on ebay but they get alot of $ for them and getting parts is a problem since Shimano doesn't support their discontinued models.

landlubber: Do you know what they have been going for on ebay? I have a friend who has a couple of 5's and 10's on Kunan rods - I can ask if he wants to sell them, but I know he'll want to know what they have been going for.

Upon further inspection of the shimano line up, it appears that the Charter special is pretty much a TLD 10 with a level wind feature thrown in. It has a lever drag, which i imagine is the same design as the TLDs. Does anyone know more about them?
