The Talica is the pinnacle of the small lever drag 2-Speed market. Designed from the ground up to be an excellent casting reel 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 offer the Talica in 11 different sizes to tackle a variety of offshore fish from the football size tuna to the record setting class pelagic species.

The Shimano Talica Story

#1 CASTABILITY
A truly light weight spool for casting small livebaits such as Anchovies and Sardines is a must. So Shimano aggressively machine the spool to maximize weight savings while maintaining strength. We also created a way to minimize drag created by water between the spool and the frame. 'Chovies and 'Dines are very light, and traditionally, to cast these baits, good anglers would "bump" the spool during the cast to get the spool moving and avoid the bait from flying out, then suddenly getting jerked down by line not coming off of the spool and slapping hard on the surface of the water. We took this one step further in defining the ability of Talica to cast well to mean underhand to enhance bait presentation. Now that the chum line will not be unattainable even when casting underhand, imagine how much further overhand will get you.

#2 POWER
Cranking force is a hard thing to explain until you are handed a reel with the fish on the other end. The use of High Efficiency Gears in high and 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. No longer will you have 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!

#3 DRAG
A smooth drag is very important and one that Shimano prides itself upon throughout the product line. Talica is no exception to this rule. However, being able to fish 3 or 4 line classes heavier than you would normally on a reel of its size makes Talica more fun to fish since you spend a lot less time fighting your tackle and more time fighting the fish. Even the smallest Talica, TAC8II, will fish 50# PowerPro with ease!

#4 COMPACT
When you first lay your eyes on a Talica it's intriguing. When you feel what it's capable of it's amazing! An incredible amount of testing for ergonomics went into the design process of this reel and the feel of it confirms this. (We went through over 5 different gearbox angles and shapes before we were happy with it!) Don't let Talica's small stature and lightweight fool you, this reel is a beast!

HEG Logo

HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. First we increased the size of the drive gear and the pinion gear to offer increased leverage and power. By using a one-piece frame that incorporates the setplate and adding a one-piece stamped sideplate, we have eliminated flex in the drive train that causes gears to bind under pressure.
