Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

Looks like the mag dial is sunken into the palming plate pretty well. It looks like the palming plate may even have a ridge around the mag dial to keep your hands from rubbing the dial. Hard to tell. Daiwa doesn't let you get a good look at the reel in the project T videos. https://s15.postimg.cc/za...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

"Daiwa" CG80 update. Pic of non handle sidelate. This reel is most likely not a real Daiwa and is some Korean OEM thing. I was hoping it was an April fool's joke.

Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

I'm not seeing any pics. So Daiwa is using the Steez SV TW platform for this new Tatula!? Pics in this other thread. http://www.tackletour.net/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=78481&p=630227#p630227 I highly doubt it is based off the Steez TWS platform. Most likely the design lessons learned in creatin...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

https://s15.postimg.cc/823h9iq7f/Screenshot_20180622-143440.png Looks like the mag dial still sticks out and would rub on your finger if you wrap your index around the face plate of the reel. The reel does look to be much more compact and better contoured. As long as you don't wrap ypur fringer aro...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

https://m.facebook.com/DaiwaUSA/ The new Tatula 100 is shown in a video on the Daiwa Facebook page. The reel strongly resembles a Steez TWS in appearance. It looks like it has the T3 style side plate but the mag dial remains in the standard location. https://s33.postimg.cc/74rmjyanj/Screenshot_20180...

Re: How fast is too fast?

I like to pitch then fire off a roll cast and skip sometimes. I'm currently learning how to get better at pitch-skipping. I definitely prefer a braking system with a lot of low spool speed control and lighter weight more easily controlled spools.

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

Tackle Advisors on youtube claims a new Tatula 100 that is smaller, weighs 6.9oz, has zero adjuster, and different knobs. I believe it. I heard some time ago that the Tatula CT would be replaced. I also heard that from another source that there would be something new coming out this year with a spi...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

I wouldn't mind it if Daiwa used the big Zillion TWS platform with the T3 style recessed dial and 1516 spools for the Zillion from here on out. Aluminum frame and side plates, 1516 spool compatibility, maybe do some mill work on the top of the frame wirh each new release like the old TD Zillion reel...
