Shimano Talica Conventional Reels are no exception to Shimano's rule that a smooth drag is very important. However, being able to fish 3 to 4 line classes heavier than you would normally on a reel of its size makes Talica more fun to fish since you spend less time fighting your tackle and more time fighting the fish. Pre-installed with an L.R.S. (Long Range Special) style drag cam, this drag is designed to provide maximum drag output for heavy settings with heavy line.

Great reel for the job   (from prior model)
Pros: size/weight for line-counter reel
Best Uses: vertical jigging

6500LC (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Reliable, Line Doesn't Tangle, Durable, Smooth Drag System
Best Uses: Trolling, River Fishing
Comments: Don't use for casting. Anchor or trolling for Steelhead, Chinook and Coho. I bought one and ended up buying one for my wife. Line counters - once you figure out the length of line that is working your set. No guessing how much line did I have out?? Line counter went out on one reel. Had to buy the whole left side $25 plus shipping. Tried to fix bad counter but sealed no access.

The Luhr Jensen Dipsy Diver Snubber allows a fish to achieve a solid hold of a bait or lure before coming tight and effectively setting the hook. In high-speed, high-tension dipsy diver trolling applications, hooks can be pulled from striking fish's mouths before a solid hookup can be achieved.
