Shimano Talica 50II 2 speed Reel
The Talica 50 2 speed reel is an excellent deep water reel tested on giant Bluefin, Swordfish, and of coarse will easily handle Hapuku and Bluenose.
For a game fishing reel the Shimano Talica is built like a soviet tank, although it acts like a Ferrari. This series offers a high speed retrieve reel that you can use for jigging just as easy as you would use it for trolling.
Each model has a one-piece cold forged (for extreme strength) and machined Aluminium frame is 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) gears, waterproof carbon drag system and 6 S-ARB bearings for super slick operation.
This series of game reels can exert extremely high drag pressures for their respective sizes and a carbon drag system has been waterproofed (when engaged) to handle big sea sprays and splashes which become inevitable when fishing the stones or offshore dropping jigs.
The range features 4 sizes – 8, 10, 12 and 16, while the High Efficiency Gearing means that they have the power to fight fish well above their weight class.
SHIMANO TALICA TWO-SPEED 50
With its pale gold spool, drag lever and handle, and silver frame and sideplates, the new Shimano Talica dual speed 50 is a very attractive fishing reel. While cosmetic features are great, it’s the internals that really make this reel tick.
The oversized High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) comes in two speeds — 3.8:1 and 1.7:1. The lower ratio assists in getting stubbornly resisting fish to the surface, and also means that the Talica 50 can perform double duty when spooled with fine-for-its-breaking strain braid for deep dropping the offshore reefs.
The range of the waterproof Carbon drag is immense and it’s possible to dial up 25 kilos of fish-stopping pressure if the situation warrants it, and the cold-forged aluminium spool is impervious to buckling or distortion.
The Talica two-speed 50 can be cast quite easily, making it ideal as a pitch-bait reel in the deep blue or for live baiting for marlin and tuna off the rocks, where getting a livie away from the edge is paramount to success.
Six SA-RB (sealed, anti-rust) bearings means winding is a breeze, even when the reel is under heavy load, and this contributes to reel’s casting ability.
