SHIMANO Talica 25II MonoDrag Cam Conventional Reel
The best, small, lever drag, 2-speed reel is now even more versatile with the addition of replaceable drag cams to allow top level performance with braided or monofilament lines. Designed from the ground up to be an excellent casting reel with an ultra-smooth and powerful drag system to handle long battles.
The Hagane Body is made of highly rigid metals such as aluminum and magnesium. With its weight reduced to the limit, the Hagane Body eliminates flex, warp, and distortion of the reel, allowing smooth reeling with little power loss. Furthermore, the body protects the engagement of the Hagane Gear and the Micro Module Gear System from shock, while maintaining smooth operation.
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased freespool.
S A-RB - These bearings have been through the same process as Shimano's A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
S Compact Body - Power - Rigidity - Durability. The S-Concept Body results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand, plus offers durability from a cold-forged aluminum for year-after-year fishing use. The 'B side (no handle)' sideplate is part of the one-piece, contributing to both rigidity and in-the-hand palming comfort.
