Serious gear for serious fish
A compact setup ideal for modern day Hollowcore 80lb braid game fishing, the Shimano Talica 25 and Tiagra 2-Speed Stand Up Game Combo
strikes the perfect balance between top end performance and durability. Renowned for a drag system that just won’t give in, the Shimano Talica 25 2-Speed reel is designed to target Kingfish, Marlin and Tuna - making it the reel of choice for any serious Big Game angler. Plus the matching Tiagra Rod provides all the power and comfort you need for those long, tough fights.
The Shimano Talica 25 2-Speed Game Reel
is a compact game reel that's ideal for trolling or live baiting with hollowcore braid and a 24-37kg IGFA monofilament top shop. This reel offers a high-speed retrieve that you can use for brutal Kingfish where speed can make all the difference or use it to target Marlin and Tuna with trolling lures or pitch up a bait to a fired up pelagic.
This model has a one-piece cold forged and machined aluminium frame for extreme strength. This is treated with a proprietary surface process for cutting edge corrosion protection. Cold forged aluminium spool, oversized HEG, waterproof carbon drag system and 6 shielded anti-reverse bearnings for super slick operation. The Talica is made to withstand massive drag pressures and the carbon drag system has been waterproofed (when engaged) to handle saltwater spray. And what's more the High Efficiency Gearing means that it has the power to fight fish well above its weight class.
Metal frames not only keep moving parts in precise alignment, they also feature the use of the latest anodizing, plating and painting techniques for a beautiful and durable finish.
Cold Forged Aluminium
The Talica's spool provides increased strength and durability over diecast aluminium or graphite spools.
Shielded Anti-rust Bearings
Anti-rust Bearings are made of stainless steel that has been through the A-RB process. At least 10 times more corrosion-resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings. It also features shields on both sides of the bearing to reduce the possibility salt or sand and allow the bearings to spin faster and longer.
This mechanism is designed so that gear changes are quick and easy, even when fighting a fish. The low gear ratio used for high-power retrieves is selected by pushing the button on the base of the handle. Return to the high-speed ratio by sliding the release button along the handle shank. By using two sets of gears, the drive and pinion gears are always engaged. There is no gear meshing during the shift.
The Shimano Tiagra Stand Up Game Rod
is light, strong and incredibly responsive, perfect for Marlin, Tuna or Sharks. It's re-engineered from the ground up to incorporate a new mix of e-glass and carbon that creates a blank with extreme strength whilst still maintaining a comfortable feel in the hand an overall weight reduction from previous models. Finished off with Fuji and Aftco components you are guaranteed a rod that is up to the task of landing seriously big fish. With a metallic gold, silver and black thread, they look just as good as they perform.
