Took my new talica tac1211 2 speed lever drag on my new Phenix my rod and I was amazed with its power. Excellent Drag system! Great reel balance for casting live baits. Caught a bunch of wft and skip jack on my first trip without any glitches. Looking forward on using it again soon.
Pros:
Nice looking reel, excellent drag, light, great balance for casting live bait

I love this reel, a little on the heavy side but it compensate for the drag power. I am thinking about getting another on the single speed size 8.
Cons:
Not made in the U.S.
