Default Tyronos vs Talica 2

What are the pros and cons of both. And how do they compare to eachother?

You can compare them on paper through this link.

As far as real world comparison, there is no comparison as far as I'm concerned. The Talica is a far superior reel. I've caught large Tuna on both and I would prefer the Talica 7 days a week. Ergonomics are better, more bearings, drag is more smooth, heavier drag capacity. The only gripes I have with the Talica is the clicker stiffness or lack thereof and the drag curve from freespool to to the first point of engagement is too firm in my opinion. If the Talica had the same clicker performance and drag curve as the Tiagra, it would be flawless. And I'm speaking of the 25II for reference.

Tyrnos is an excellent light tackle gamefish reel, for up to about 30lbs. Plenty of line capacity and drag for that duty. Hard to justify anything else for the price.

Talicas in the larger sizes are pretty good, or better, substitutes for Tiagras, especially with braid. Light, powerful, although not cheap. Just be aware that the drag curve is pretty savage, and as mentioned above the clicker is nowhere near as good as a Tiagra for trolling.

From a price stand point your comparing economy with premium. Talicas are nearly twice as expensive. I use trynos 30’s locally which I find to be over kill around Florida. I use tiagras in Bahamas. What are you targeting and how are you going to use them?

FYI, at ICAST, Shimano introduced a Talica 25 2 speed with 2 cams for the drag, one for mono and one for braid.
