The Talica and the Talica II (2 speed) are compact, lightweight, lever drag reels designed for braid. Superbly versatile, the Talica packs a huge punch in the drag department and delivers powerful cranking to overcome the largest fish.
Don't let Talica's compact stature and lightness fool you, this reel is a beast. Originally designed for casting baits and lures at large surface feeding species like marlin and tuna, Talica can also be used for jigging and bottom fishing with braid. If you are in the market for a narrow bodied, easy handling, super fast multiplier, you certainly can’t go wrong with these beauties. And if you are the type of angler who appreciates powerful cranking, check out the 2-Speed (II) models which switch seamlessly from high to low gear, and the larger 20II CAM and 25II CAM models which have changeable CAMS to adjust drag performance.
Based upon a narrow body principle which equals less weight, smaller dimensions and easier handling than equivalent drag multipliers, Talica is truly a high-speed dream machine. Equipped with a super strong aluminium frame, that has an advanced corrosion resistant E.I. finish, the compact size fits perfectly in the hand. The waterproof drag delivers remarkable power, and can be adjusted instantly using the easy to access lever, whilst the 6 shielded A-RB bearings, brass gears and an aluminium spool, make sure everything runs as smoothly as you would expect from a top quality Shimano reel.
