Daiwa has the Korean reels up on their website plus a picture of the non-handle side of the Tatula 100. Randy H. (Per a Daiwa video) says it feels a lot like the Steez.

Daiwa looks to be bringing out a new series called Cage. Cork grips and alconite guides. New Tatula rods an for grips but switch to Fazlite guides instead ofalconite. Also the Elite series gets some new models.

Not sure who suggested it first (thought I did) but I will be sad even though I still think it has a DOYO look to it. Would be absolutely pissed if the new Tatula 100 was built by Doyo. Would probably cry if they release a new Zillion with the recessed sideplate and all goods but stopped the Thailand factory. Wish the Zillions would go back to the Japanese factory...

Wow I hope they are good. Price seems kinda high. I have two and think I paid less that $200 for them.

If you watch Zona live Seth is fishing with the new CG reel and when he palms the reel you can barely see the top so I assume it's small size will palm well.

It's oddly about the size of Lew's LFS reels. They are really small too, have a 32mm spool, 7.5 ratio gears, composite frames, bearing count (and placement I am assuming-4 in knobs, 1 main shaft, 1 roller bearing, 3 spool/pinion, 1 levelwind), and last + most odd Daiwa mentions the "double anodized" spool.

That's not the new CG. It's a 50th anniversary OG zillion. Seth still uses some old Daiwas like the coastal OG zillion, 50th anniversary, PX68, etc.

So basically these are all small compact Reels that are all approx. the same size as the discontinued SV105.
With the CG80 being the upper end reel of the 3 and guessing all under $150. with the CC80 most likely being a $80 reel and the CR80 being a $100 reel.

Just a guess.

Really thought the last generation were great values. The increased cost to me and components makes the value go down IMO.

$300+ I'll just keep building myself customs. For ~250 I may have purchased one or two.

Always like the reel seats on 13's stuff polarizing as they have been.
