The Shimano Talica is the pinnacle of the small lever drag 2-Speed market. Designed from the ground up with an ultra-smooth and powerful drag system to handle long battles. These reels were purpose built to take advantage of modern braided lines such as Power Pro Hollow Ace and shorter fluorocarbon leaders. We use the Talica 25 for our shallow to deepwater fishing. It makes easy work of large Snappers and Groupers. When fishing deep water the high retrieve speed makes reeling up fish in 250ft a breeze.
