Setting the standard for small 2-speed lever drag excellence, the newly introduced Talica 12IIA and 16IIA redefine Shimano's flagship reel, offering an unparalleled combination of ultra-smooth reeling and formidable drag performance for conquering extended battles with trophy game fish. Leveraging Shimano's cutting-edge Infinity Drive technology, these reels feature an innovative drag design that enhances drag force while reducing side-load pressure, resulting in a remarkable 30% lighter rotation during intense battles and high-drag scenarios. The latest Talica generation incorporates X-Protect technology, ensuring high-level water resistance in critical areas for improved durability without compromising the reel's lightweight feel. With the inclusion of the Light-Line Drag Cam, anglers gain added versatility with a lower drag curve, ideal for those using monofilament or lighter fluorocarbon leaders. The HAGANE Body, crafted from highly-rigid aluminum, reduces overall weight while eliminating reel body flex, warp, and distortion, ensuring smooth reeling with minimal power loss during challenging encounters. Enhancing the S-Compact body design, the palming side plate is now an additional 6% smaller than its predecessor. Ready to push the limits, Shimano's all-new Talica 12IIA and 16IIA stand as the pinnacle of performance, providing anglers with the tools needed to tackle the toughest fish in the most demanding conditions.


HAGANE Body Baitcasting

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing on the reel while fighting fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power, increasing efficiency through strength.


INFINITYDRIVE for lever drag reel leverages a new drag design to increase drag force while reducing side-load pressure to produce lighter rotation during high-drag situations.

X Protect

X Protect provides high-level water resistance to the inside bearing of drive gear shaft with waterproof construction.

S-Compact Body

S-Compact Body allows for all-day comfort and improved fishability by making the palming side plate up to 25% smaller than the A-Side plate.

Cross Carbon Drag Baitcasting

The Cross Carbon Drag material provides a wider range of drag settings compared to traditional drag materials. The Cross Carbon Drag provides the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever while providing anglers with increased durability.

S A-RB Baitcasting

S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting rotation of the bearing.
