The Shimano Talica series is renowned for its exceptional performance in the world of tuna fishing. Matched perfectly with the Dark Matter HK 6'6" XXH Casting Rod, these reels are ideal for chunking and trolling for tuna, offering unparalleled power and versatility.
The Shimano Talica TAC20II and TAC25II 2-Speed Lever Drag Reels are engineered to handle the toughest tuna fishing challenges. The TAC20II, weighing just 32.3 ounces, boasts an impressive power-to-size ratio. Designed to jig large yellowfins, bluefins, trophy-class wahoo, and dorado, it features oversized carbon drag washers that produce a gut-wrenching 45 pounds of drag. The 2-speed functionality allows for quick retrieval with a 5.2:1 ratio and powerful cranking with a 2.3:1 low gear, making it easy to bring fish into gaff range. The High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) system, cold-forged and machined aluminum frame, and greaseless bearings ensure smooth and efficient performance. The TAC20II can hold 575 yards of 80-pound braid, making it one of the best purpose-built tuna jigging reels available.

The TAC25II reel is designed as a true multipurpose weapon, capable of targeting adult yellowfin and bluefin tuna, striped marlin, smaller blues and blacks, sailfish, and record-class wahoo and dorado. Its versatility is unmatched, allowing for jigging, chunking, pitch baits, and bottom fishing. The TAC25II features the same oversized carbon drag washers, delivering 45 pounds of ferocious drag. The 2-speed reel's quick high gear (5.2:1) and powerful low gear (2.3:1) provide excellent performance for various fishing techniques. The HEG system dramatically increases cranking power, essential for battling 200-plus-pound fish. Handcrafted in Japan, the TAC25II is built with cold-forged and machined aluminum for the frame, sideplates, and spool, which holds over 700 yards of 80-pound braid.
Both the TAC20II and TAC25II reels, paired with the Dark Matter HK 6'6" XXH Casting Rod, provide a formidable combination for any serious tuna angler, delivering unmatched power, precision, and reliability on the open ocean.
