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.

Ryan,

I can give you a call as well, better options over the Tica are out there, the Okuma reels are proven.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
