Shimano Stradic C14 reels

Shimano’s new Talica reels have a high-speed, castable lever drag. They are made from one-piece, cold-forged and machined aluminium frames that are treated with a proprietary surface process for extra corrosion protection.

Other features include lightweight cold-forged aluminium spools, oversized HEG (High Efficiency Gearing) gears, waterproof carbon drag systems and S-ARB bearings for slick operation.

Talica reels are capable of high drag pressures, and their carbon drag systems have been waterproofed (when engaged) to handle the inevitable big sea sprays and splashes of fishing the stones or offshore dropping jigs.

The range comes in four sizes and is available with single and two-speed gearing (single speed models will be available early next year).
