You would be wrong. If you fish windon leaders they roller guides are a must.

I was associated with a tackle store that unfortunately closed up. We sold a great deal of top shelf Shimano products. The Tallicas were our biggest seller. I use the 16's for Mai, smaller Tunas, Sailfish. White Marlin, Cobia. The 25 for large Tuna and Wahoo, and the 50;s for Blue Marlin.. We usually spooled the 50's with 50 lb braid and 60 or 80 Momoi on top; Once you use the Tallicas as a stand up it is hard to fish the heavier reels that require a fighting chair.

I wanted to see if somebody had the comparison of a 50W tiagra to a 50 Talica, a reel that seems more directed towards the stand-up market.
is standing up for you a funner activity than being strapped in or leaving it in the holder and dragging a fish to death with 40 lbs of drag?

i enjoy all kinds of fishing but i am pretty damn sure I dont want to be hooked up on anything over 150 lbs fighting standup, especially not using the gunnel rail like west coasters.

Out of curiosity, how much drag do ya'll typically fish when stand up fishing?

i dont know where you fish but standup fishing is probably 85 percent of the northeast offshore fishery It’s igfa and also sport. We went from tiagras to talicas 7 years ago and never looked back. They’re the best standup reel and nothing compares. Have caught fish over 400 and fight them between 22 and 32 pounds. If paired to the right rods it’s a lethal combo, but this talica 50 vs tiagras debate is a joke if you’ve really spent time on both set ups.
