The Shimano Talica 8 Jigging Reel is built on solid engineering principles that put this reel in a league of its own. This series offers a high-speed retrieve that you can use for jigging up brutal Kingfish from the offshore structure where speed can make all the difference or use it to target Marlin and Tuna trolling lures or pitching out a bait to a fired up pelagic.
Each model has a one-piece cold forged (for extreme strength) and machined Aluminium frame, this is treated with a proprietary surface process for advanced corrosion protection. Shimano then added a lightweight cold-forged aluminium spool, oversized HEG (High-Efficiency Gearing) gears, waterproof carbon drag system and 6 S-ARB bearings for super slick operation. The Talica has been constructed to withstand massive drag pressures and the carbon drag system has been waterproofed (when engaged) to handle saltwater spray. And what's more, High-Efficiency Gearing means that it has the power to fight fish well above its weight class.
Metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment, they also feature the use of the latest anodising, plating and painting techniques for a beautiful and durable finish.
Cold Forged Aluminium
The Talica spool provides increased strength and durability over diecast aluminium or graphite spools.
Shielded Anti-rust Bearings
Anti-rust Bearings are made of stainless steel that has been through the A-RB process. At least 10 times more corrosion-resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings. It also features shields on both sides of the bearing to reduce the possibility salt or sand and allow the bearings to spin faster and longer.
