All I know about Tica's is that they're very prone to corrosion.
If you do pick it up be sure to take it off the rod and rinse it well after every use. A close friend of mine (Gary2) had a top of the line Tica Taurus. He was very good about rinsing it after each use but he never took it off the rod - bad idea. The foot rotted completely away under the hood of the reel seat.
