    I know its been asked, I did a search. But I just got a talica 12 two speed. I put it on a new Okuma PCH 760 30/60
    I caught a few yt on it and its amazing butter smooth. My question is the reel seems kind of big/heavy for the rod even though the rod is sweet. Is there a go to rod for this reel? Doesn't matter brand. Using for live bait and flat falls, 65 lb j braid

    thanks

    not familiar with your rod maybe more suitable for talica 10-2. but I have 3 of the talica 12-2 & they are lil beasts super versatile & probably not a perfect match for your particular rod.

    I use them on a ulua jig stick, phenix hyrbid phd 700x3h 80lb, & phenix hybrid 929x2h popper rig. I consider it a 50lb and up reel which ever rod maker you prefer.

    I know what you mean, It's because the newer graphite composite blanks and components make the rods so light, they feel under powered. I think The Okuma PCH76XH (30-60) is an ideal rod for Tac12. Line ratings are accurate, it's a solid 50# rod, IMHO.
    I have the Okuma PCH 70M (12-25) with a Tac10 for my go to 20-25# live bait set up, plenty of backbone for 25#.

    and see witch one I like it on the most .

    I've fished it on a calstar 700h and like it. However, I fished it on a calstar 875h 30-60 last year with 40# and really really enjoyed the match. It's a very versatile reel that will work great on many rod choices.

    I use mine on a Calstar 800 M. Casts great and lots of power.

    Tried my tac12ii on a few different rods. It's on a Phenix BD PSW 76xh now. Really fun set up and the 76xh is a beast of a rod. Bait and jigs both feel good on the rod. No BFT on that combo yet tho.

    Mine is paired with Phenix Axis 720 H (25-60) with 65# spectra and #40 top shot. Perfect 40 lb set up. Perfectly balanced. Good for bait or jigs. Love my Tac 12ii. Consider paring also with UC US 76 HP (30-50) or UC US 76 Predator (50-80)

    Broke my PCH on its first use.. no real load on it when it snapped either (3-4lbs). Just a funny angle (not horrible) .. Guess i got a bad blank.. shame it seemed like a nice rod. Oh and it was the 700XH with a Saltiga 30T kinda off topic but just thought I’d throw that out there

    I prefer Phenix, and with 65# braid I'd stick with an XH Hybrid or Axis, your choice of length. I fish 65# braid with a Tac 10 for 40-50 on a 700XH Hybrid and it's awesome. I fish straight braid and prefer 80# braid on the 12 for 60 to light 80# use on an X2H.

    I just ordered a phenix PHD 700H 20-60 hope that it’s heavy enough fishing 65 with 18-20lbs of drag (bottom fishing) I have a calstar 700H 30-80 it’s almost too heavy (for what i use it for) wish shops here in south FL carried more Phenix-Rods then I’d have a better idea of what i was dealing with. Waiting on delivery tomorrow we will see

    I have fished my talica 16 on my custom black diamond 700h and it's an awesome setup for me with 85lb fins 40g and 40-60 flouro. I've fished 15 lbs on it and it did fine. Had a nice bend on a 50lb grouper I landed. Should be nice setup.

    18-20# of drag? That rod's way to light. I'd go with a phd700x2h for that drag. A Talica 20II fishing a 40-50# leader would be good on a phd760xh or UC Tilefish 80.
