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.
