The Shimano Talica 50ii & Status Bluewater 24-37kg Bent Butt is now the go to combo for Stripped Marlin, Tuna and XOS Kingfish. It is a compact lightweight option to fish 37kg hollowcore and top shot.
Shimano Talica Tac 50 2 Speed Game Reel:
The Shimano Talica is Shimano's lever drag series. It offers a high-speed retrieve that you can use for jigging kingfish and other species where speed can be the difference. It can also be used to target marlin and tuna, trolling lures or pitching out a bait for Marlin.
The Talica is available in both single speed and 2 speed options providing a wider range of applications from straight out lure fishing to battling deep water species. Each model has a one-piece machined Aluminium frame treated with a proprietary surface process for cutting-edge corrosion protection.
The Talica also features a lightweight cold forged aluminium spool, oversized HEG (High Efficiency Gearing) gears, waterproof carbon drag system and 6 S-ARB bearings for super smooth operation.
The Talica has been constructed to excert massive drag pressures for their respective sizes and a carbon drag system has been waterproofed (when engaged) to handle salt water spray.
The Talica range features 4 sizes 8, 10, 12 and 16, while the High Efficiency Gearing means that they have the power to fight any NZ species well above their weight class.
All making this a perfect reel for deep drop swordfishing, trolling for marlin and other heavy fighting pelagic species. But it does not stop there, the Talica 50II is also perfect for deep puka and bluenose fishing!
This reel is commonly spooled with braid spliced to 37kg IGFA topshot. Please view the hollowcore braid options HERE to consider combining with your purchase. The team will happily spool and splice your line ready to tow plastic this season! This will give you the requisite line capacity to land that monster Sword!
