Product Summary

The Shimano Talica Lever Drag Reel is the pinnacle of the small lever drag 2-speed market, offering reliable performance and extreme versatility for a variety of saltwater applications. Designed from the ground up to be an excellent casting reel with an ultra-smooth and powerful drag system to handle long battles. This reel was purpose-built to take advantage of modern braided lines and shorter fluorocarbon leaders.

The compact, high-speed, castable lever drag features a high capacity and E.I. surface treatment for extreme corrosion protection to allow the reel to withstand its toughest actions. An L.R.S. drag cam is pre-installed, and a 20-lb. monofilament cam is included. The lever drag has a comfortable fit with its ergonomic design and lightweight spool with grease-less spool support bearings for great live-bait castability.

The Talica also includes a super stopper with an assist stopper, ratcheting drag lever, preset knob with click, and high efficiency gearing. Aluminum rod clamp. A-RB roller bearing. Silent anti-reverse. Oversized carbon-drag washers for ultra-high drag pressures. Cold forged machined aluminum frame and spool.
