The Talica II has high speed and power,
compact design with excellent live bait castability. These high speed,
compact leverdrags, with powerful gears and drag curves were designed for
fly-lining live baits to or chunks into the chum line on Long Range Stand-Up
Tuna Boats, utilizing PowerPro with short top shots.
Fly-lining live baits. Catching big fish on small leverdrags.
Common sense says that this is an oxymoron. Star Drags are better casters by
nature. They have lighter spools because the drags are in the gears, not the
spool. Lever Drags tend to have more power in the drag system because their
washers are so much larger. With Talica 2-Speeds Shimano set out to break the
mold. They wanted to make a 2-Speed Leverdrag that could underhand a sardine 40
feet to the chum line with ease. We also wanted to increase the fishable drag
capabilities of a small diameter reel to fish with heavy PowerPro and short
Fluorocarbon top shots that anglers are using to land huge fish.
