What is the difference between the Shimano TLD Star series vs. TLD 25, TLD, 30, TLD, 50 etc?

TLD stands for Triton Lever Drag..

The Star series are all star drags.

for 20lb I prefer the star drag models. They are really good inexpensive reels.

Star drags are cool, but I have always had problems with corrosion, the Lever Drag reels have always done better for me.

Stars work great but i prefer speedmasters. had a set of four for going on 10 years now just a quick shot of corrosion x every now and then. they've caught hundreds of fish.
