I of course bow to the subject matter expertise of the Boss. However, I think it's important to point out that you can fish a big reel lighter if that is what the fish want. Especially if you are not casting. The SOA trip taught me that 30 gets bit more but is harder to land a fish with. Of all the compromises due to space and budget, I think big reel fished light is best. That wasn't my opinion a couple months ago.

Shimano is very proud of their Talica reels, which I think is business-speak for being over- priced. Doc wants to fish this reel for big fish. It is rigged with 500 yards of 100 pound jb hollow and will get a 50 yard topshot of 100 pound mono.  I actually was able to get 30 pounds of drag at strike and 50 pounds at full. But just because you can do something,  it doesn't mean you should.  I would not be surprised if he shreds the gears. Grab some popcorn and let's watch.  This could be fun!

I thought Sal was the one wanting to blow up a reel on a big fish? Hopefully there will be video...

I have that same feeling about Talicas, they are offered as powerfull reel but what got me thinking when I was just opening the reel were the tiny screws that hold the sideplate to the frame, just 4 really small screws than can be easily misthreaded or head broken with some corrosion

I have thin fingers, I think mine in the pic is 5/8", so you can get an idea of the tiny screw size

Shimano has done very well at catching fisherman.
