Awesome Reel
October 9, 2014
I pair these with trevala rods and use the 12's and the 8's for albacore off the coast of Washington as well as lingcod. I also use the 12's for halibut. Smooth with plenty of drag, the Talica ii is now the only lever drags reels I'll use. Yes they are pricey but you really do get what you pay for.
Pros:
Smooth Drag Weight Handle
Cons:
Price

Nice tuna rig
July 22, 2013
Just got the reel out for tuna in So Cal. One 40lb blue fin later I am very happy with the rig. The powerpro line let me get my bait out past others and to the feeding zone. Only 3 tuna caught that trip. Tuna lit up the reel a few times. Very smooth drag. Had it paired with the 8" terez rod. The combo gave good give and helped offset the braid to floro shock transfer. Rod a bit mushy for a jig but for live bait it tosses the chovie very nice. Put 65lb powerpro and 6 ft leader of flouro on it. Might have been a bit heavy on the line for picky yellow tail but with a bite on the 40lb floro worked good.

Talica 20 and 25
September 18, 2012
Bought both reels and paired them with Trevala jigging rods. They appear to be a really quality item. Used them once so far on and overnight tuna trip. No tuna, but they handled a huge thresher shark and a big hammerhead with no difficulty at all. Drags are smooth. Setting drag is easy. I have other quality offshore reels and these match up favorably with the best of them. With braid line you can load them up with enough capacity to handle just about anything we find on the east coast short of a true giant blue fin
Pros:
everything
Cons:
nothing
