Tica

7 posts in this topic

Any of you musky dudes ever try the Tica baitcasting reels? Looking at their Striper 200LE as a possible cat & sturgeon reel. Just curious of any experiences. I know they make a solid spinning reel that the ice fisherman love, but I would hate to get stuck with a junk reel. Here's the specs:

8 precision stainless steel rust resistant ball bearings.

Forged aluminium alloy spool.

One piece aluminium frame CNC machined.

Instant anti-reverse.

Centrifugal brake system.

Star drag.

Quick remove sideplate.

Line out alarm.

Large ultra wear-resisting line guide.

Forged aluminum alloy handle knob

5.2:1 gear ratio

14.6 oz

Line capacity 14-275/17-210/20-165

Selling for about $120

General consensus I have seen is that they are not a quality product and that the support leaves much to be desired. The guides that pro staffed for them moved on.

Thanks. That's what I was worried about.

without being too frank...they are junk

Much better options out there in that same price range.

Check out the new Okuma line. Induron and Red Isis. I have run 3 of these reels for the last 2 seasons and been pretty happy with the results. A great value at $120.

Thanks, I will check them out. Know of anywhere in the metro area that sells them? I'd like to get my hands on one.

I don't, but I can put you in contact with someone that can tell you if they are stocked in the metro.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
