The Shimano Talica 12 Jigging Reel is built on solid engineering principles that put this reel in a league of its own. It offers a high-speed retrieve that you can use for jigging up brutal Kingfish from the offshore structures where speed can make all the difference. You can also use it to target Marlin and Tuna trolling lures or pitching out a bait to a fired up pelagic.
This reel has a one-piece cold forged and machined Aluminium frame, treated with a proprietary surface process for cutting-edge corrosion protection. Shimano then added a lightweight cold-forged aluminium spool, oversized HEG (High-Efficiency Gearing) gear, waterproof carbon drag system and 6 S-ARB bearings for super slick operation. The Shimano Talica 12 High-Speed Jigging Reel is constructed to withstand massive drag pressures and a carbon drag system has been waterproofed (when engaged) to handle saltwater spray.
These bearings have been through the same process as the A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. That system reduces the possibility of salts or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.
