Shimano Talica 16 II speed Overhead Reel

The Shimano Talica II is a castable high-speed lever drag that has become a favourite of sportfishers due to its compact size and high line capacity. A one-piece cold forged and machined aluminium frame has cutting-edge corrosion protection. Shimano then added a light-weight cold forged aluminium spool, a waterproof Cross Carbon drag system and six SA-RB bearings for super slick operation. The use of HEG in both high and low speeds sets Talica apart from any other reel, providing incredible cranking power.

The Hagane Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler’s actions directly into cranking power.

Shielded Anti-Rust Bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate in protection
