Tiburon Engineering

If you are interested in saltwater big game fishing, then you have come to the right place! At Tiburon Engineering, we pride ourselves in being a leading innovator in the big game fishing tackle industry since 1989.

Tiburon Smart Shift® automatic 2-speed reels, Quick Change™ high performance reels, and T-Bar articulated reel handles are just a few of Tiburon Engineering’s creative and original product designs.

Tiburon’s Smart Shift® 2-speed fishing reels automatically shift between gears. The patented 2-speed, auto-shift transmission ensures that you are in the right gear all the time. Smart Shift® saltwater fishing reels help avoid tossed hooks and line wrapped fish. A Tiburon Smart Shift® lever drag reel represents the finest in big game fishing reels. No other saltwater fishing reel does the shifting for you.

The Tiburon Smart Shift® automatically shifts into low gear for cranking power, then instantly shifts into high-gear to quickly gain line when the fish jumps or makes a hard charge to the boat.

Creating products that feature incredible performance, subtle beauty and years of reliability is a tradition at Tiburon Engineering. Please enjoy your visit, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about our products or our company.
