Product Description

The Shimano Talica TAC16II 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is a force to be reckoned with indeed – putting out a lip-ripping 40# drag thanks to oversized carbon drag washers. You’ll be impressed with the incredible fishability of the TAC16II, as the comfortable oversized egg handle gives you a great feel when hooked up to a large predator. Oh, and a large predator is exactly what you’ll be targeting with your TAC16II – you’re looking at a lightweight beast of a reel that hunts yellowfin and bluefin up to the 80# class with ease, as well as wahoo, sailfish, dorado, roosterfish, and some large bottomfish like cubera snapper. The TAC16II uses the revolutionary High Efficiency Gearing system that Shimano has developed to add substantial power and smoothness to the reel. What this means is that the old main gear has been replaced with a much larger main gear with smaller teeth – the result is a much easier crank with far superior gear meshing. This is a 2 speed reel, so feel free to rip jigs up through the water column with the quick 5.7:1 high gear, and then switch into the torque producing 3.1:1 low gear for some serious head turning power. The Shimano Talica TAC16II 2 Speed Lever Drag Reel is a Japanese made super reel, and is constructed using all cold forged and machined aluminum for incredible rigidity, and the lightweight spool will hold just about 500 yards of 65# braid.
