The Talica is a castable high-speed lever drag that has become a favourite of sportfishers due to it compact size and high line capacity.
The 23 Talica raises the benchmark for compact lever-drag reels with ultra-smooth winding and powerful drag performance. Featuring a completely re-designed Infinity Drive drag system the 23 Talica is capable of producing increased drag force with reduced side load pressure, this results in smooth and consistent line release while facilitating up to 30% lighter handle rotation in high-load situations. Improving on the S-Compact body design of the previous generation, the side-plate of the 23 Talica is 6% smaller while it’s rigid aluminium Hagane construction reduces overall weight and eliminates body-flex under load to provide optimal power transfer and reeling efficiency. By integrating X-Protect technology at key locations in the body structure, the 23 Talica has achieved improved water resistance, effectively increasing longevity and durability without sacrificing the light feeling of the gearing. A light-line drag cam is included, this provides added versatility and gives anglers the option to fish with a lower drag curve for light monofilament lines. Push the limits. Comfortably challenge the strongest fish in the harshest conditions with 23 Talica.
