Shimano TLD-2 Speed Lever Drag Reels
The Shimano TLD-IIA Reels are powerful, light and durable can quickly describe Shimano’s new TLD 2-Speed lever-drag reel series.
Each Shimano TLD-IIA reel features Shimano’s patented 2-speed shifting mechanism and A-RB anti-rust bearings, along with unique handles to provide comfort and fish-fighting advantages.
The A-RB bearings provide the corrosion resistance needed for saltwater use, plus anglers will appreciate the cranking ease of the ergonomic Power Handle on the 20 and 30 size reels, and the offset ergonomic Power Grip on the 50 size reels.
Construction features on all four reels include stamped graphite frames, graphite sideplates, an aluminum spool, a loud clicker and rod clamp.
Shimano Talica 2-Speed Lever Drag Reels
Shimano's® Talica™ II Two-Speed Lever Drag Saltwater Reel is about using heavy braid and live bait to catch the meanest fish that swim. To win, you need a compact, high-tech reel with an incredibly steep drag curve, for the power and control you demand. High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) with plenty of speed on the top end. Great castability, with super-hard, greaseless spool bearings.
A compact, cold-forged machined-aluminum frame, sideplate, and spool with advanced Electrical Impregnation surface treatment and S A-RB ball bearings. Oversized carbon drag washers. Silent anti-reverse, a clicker, ergonomic power handle, and ratcheting drag lever. Six bearings. Right-hand retrieve.
The Shimano Talica Story: #1 CASTABILITY - A truly light weight spool for casting small livebaits such as Anchovies and Sardines is a must. So Shimano aggressively machine the spool to maximize weight savings while maintaining strength. We took this one step further in defining the ability of Talica to cast well to mean underhand to enhance bait persentation. Now that the chum line will not be unattainable even when casting underhand, imagine how much further overhand will get you.
#2 POWER - Cranking force is a hard thing to explain until you are handed a reel with the fish on the other end. The use of High Efficiency Gears in high and low speeds sets Talica apart from all reels currently offered in the market. The incredible power in low and in high is what makes Talica a joy to battle big fish with.
#3 DRAG - A smooth drag is very important and one that Shimano prides itself upon throughout the product line. However, being able to fish 3 or 4 line classes heavier than you would normally on a reel of its size makes Talica more fun to fish since you spend a lot less time fighting your tackle and more time fighting the fish.
#4 COMPACT - An incredible amount of testing for ergonomics went into the design process of this reel and the feel of it confirms this. Don't let Talica's small stature and lightweight fool you, this reel is a beast!
