The Shimano Talica TAC16 Single-Speed Lever Drag Reel is the largest single speed Talica on the market, and although it’s not the biggest reel in stature, the power backing up the TAC16 is hard to beat in similarly sized reels. The oversized carbon drag washers inside the easy to use lever drag system of the TAC16 pump out 40# of beefy drag, more than enough to target large powerful pelagic predators including tuna to the 80# class, sailfish, wahoo, amberjack, spearfish, and even white marlin. The high-speed 5.7:1 gear ratio is perfect for all jigging applications, and also for some pitch bait and chunking applications as well. There’s even enough line capacity to hunt the depths for some large grouper and snapper (500 yards of 65# braid). You’ll love this Japanese made reel’s all cold forged and machined aluminum construction, making for one of the toughest and technically sound reels Shimano has ever produced. High Efficiency Gearing replaces the old main gear with a brand new oversized main gear with smaller teeth for drastically improved gear meshing resulting in an absurdly smooth and powerful retrieve. The Shimano Talica TAC16 Lever Drag Reel is perfect for most mid-range saltwater power fishing applications, and will quickly become your go-to single speed jigging reel.
