A game-changer for Kiwi anglers looking to "downsize" their game fishing tackle and take full advantage or a more ergonomic way to fish for Kingfish, Bass and Striped Marlin, the Shimano Talica II 16 2-Speed Game Reel is a compact but powerful beast. It offers a high-speed retrieve that you can use for jigging up brutal Kingfish or use to target Marlin and Tuna.
Unbelievable cranking power
The use of High-Efficiency Gear in high and in low speeds sets Talica apart from all reels currently offered in the market. The incredible power in low and in high is what makes Talica a joy to battle big fish with. You no longer need to decide between power in low gear or speed in high gear. Talica is the best of both worlds and lets you save your energy for hoisting that cow up for a photo.
Tough drag system
The tough drag system allows you to fish three or four-line classes heavier than you would normally do on a reel of its size. Talica makes it more fun to fish since you spend a lot less time fighting your tackle and more time fighting the fish.
When you first lay your eyes on a Talica - it's intriguing. When you feel what it's capable of - it's amazing! Don't let Talica's small stature and lightweight fool you, this reel is a beast. It also features a double anodised cold-forged frame and spool, which makes it extra strong and resistant to harsh saltwater conditions.
Unique anti-corrosion feature
This feature drastically increases the corrosion resistance of the reel. E.I. is used on the spool, frame and side plate - the most common spots where corrosion begins. This, coupled with the use of S A-RB (Shielded Anti-Rust Bearings) and drain holes to allow saltwater to escape the reel whether sitting on a shelf or vertically in a rack, gives anglers so much confidence in the reel's durability.
