by pescelurati 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.

by BinGaulee 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scubaarchery Incredible tuna reel
I use this reel for grouper/snapper/tuna fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. This is a great all around reel. I used it to bottom fish for snapper, and cranked the drag up and put it in low gear to go for big grouper.
For tuna, I used this reel to both freeline live flying fish and jig to 600ft with 400g jigs for YFT and BFT. The reel is effortless to either freespool or to crank in heavy jigs all night. Additionally, the narrow spool on the 16 makes it easy to jig all night.
I would recommend this reel as a great all around multi-use reel.
