THIS REEL IS FANTASTIC, UP TO 45LBS DRAG. IT IBOATED A 150+ YELLOWFIN TUNA USING 130 SPECTRA AND 80LB FLOUROCARBON TOP SHOT.
WONDERFULLY SMOOTH DRAG.
TYPICAL GREAT SHIMANO DESIGN.
PRICED WITH SIMILAR ACCURATE REELS.

Awesome reel

Spooled the reel with 80# Power Pro and used it ground fishing for cod in up to 300 feet of water.
Very smooth drag plus the ability to increase the amount of strike drag, up to 40 lbs, to match up with heavier jigs proved invaluable.
Looking forward to using it to jig for tuna during the summer.

Incredible tuna reel

I use this reel for grouper/snapper/tuna fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. This is a great all around reel. I used it to bottom fish for snapper, and cranked the drag up and put it in low gear to go for big grouper.
For tuna, I used this reel to both freeline live flying fish and jig to 600ft with 400g jigs for YFT and BFT. The reel is effortless to either freespool or to crank in heavy jigs all night. Additionally, the narrow spool on the 16 makes it easy to jig all night.
I would recommend this reel as a great all around multi-use reel.

talica 25II

I will be using this reel on a 17 day- long range tuna trip. On these trips the tuna run between 100 and 300 lbs.,with a lot of fish over 200 lbs. This reel has proven itself with 200 plus pound fish. I also have the talica 16II, which I landed a 125 lb. yellow fin tuna on last October. I caught that fish jigging, about 300 foot deep, and it ran down to about 450 foot before stopping. It only took me about 15 minutes to bring this fish up to the boat.
The talica's are incredible reels with a lot of power, and I would recommend them to anyone.
