Smooth drag is very important and one that Shimano prides itself upon throughout the product line. Talica is no exception to the rule. However, being able to fish 3 to 4 line classes heavier than you would normally on a reel of its size makes Talica more fun to fish since you spend less time fighting your tackle and more time fighting the fish. Pre-installed with an L.R.S. (Long Range Special) style drag cam, which is designed to provide maximum drag output for heavy settings with heavy line, the Talica Single speeds are specifically designed for fishing heavy PowerPro Hollow-Ace with short Fluorocarbon topshots. The 8 & 10 sizes will fish 50 pound PowerPro Hollow-Ace with ease, while the 12 & 16 sizes can utilize up to 100 pound Hollow-Ace!

Great reel!

I was looking for a light weight, single speed, compact, lever drag reel with a speedy retrieve. The Shimano Talica TAC8 was exactly what I was looking for. Silky smooth drag, strong cranking power, easy casting, and durable finish. Ive taken it out over a dozen times and just hosed it down afterwards, looks like I just took it out of the box. I do wish it was slightly lighter and more compact.
ProsSmooth drag, durable finish, easy on/off clicker, easy to cast, cracking power, great looking reel
ConsWish it was a little more compact and lighter (like the Okuma Andros), and a deeper cut-out on the frame for spool thumbing.
