Shimano® Talica™ II Two-Speed Lever Drag Saltwater Reels
These Talica reels are BEASTS!!!
I have the Talica 10II, 12II, 16II, & 25II. These reels do everything I need them to do from Trolling wahoo, drift fishing for snapper & kings, bottom fishing grouper & AJ's, and chunking for tuna! Last year I pulled in a 117lb Yellowfin Tuna on the 25II. It stood up and fought the fish with ease. I would highly recommend these reels.

I will be using this reel on a 17 day- long range tuna trip. On these trips the tuna run between 100 and 300 lbs.,with a lot of fish over 200 lbs. This reel has proven itself with 200 plus pound fish. I also have the talica 16II, which I landed a 125 lb. yellow fin tuna on last October. I caught that fish jigging, about 300 foot deep, and it ran down to about 450 foot before stopping. It only took me about 15 minutes to bring this fish up to the boat. The talica's are incredible reels with a lot of power, and I would recommend them to anyone.

The greatest 2 speed
This summer I caught a 60lb tuna with the 16 reel. It took me 10 minutes to land the fish. I had it on low speed and just kept winding down until the gaff. So I went out and bought the 10 and the 20.
