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.

    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/          
    • DALLAS TRADES BENN to Montreal !!!!!!   Jordie   for a 4th round pick and some no-name....Jordie was bad and playing worse lately
    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
