Need 3 Daiwa Spinning Rods possibly 4

Postby Dam0007 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 6:19 am

Hey guys Any input would be useful.

I absolutely hate the Fuji reel seat most of these use. Only one I could see myself using is the the seat on the Tat Elites but I’ve seen the same 7ft M XF with 2 different reel seats at 2 different places. So I’m afraid I’ll order the 3 rods and have different seats on them. My gripe is locking the reel down and there being a gap between the hood and the seat. As I posted on another forum some comparisons as not all the rods use the Fuji’s.

Tatula $150 Msrp
SVF Blank, X45, Alconite Guides
Tatula XT $100 Msrp
HVF Blank, X45, Alum guides
Tatula Elite $180 Msrp
SVF Blank, X45, Alconite Guides
Cronos $180 Msrp
HVF Blank, X45, Alconite Guides
Steez XT $300 Msrp
SVF Blank, X45, Alconite Guides

differences:??
Tatula XT and Cronos host same blanks yet at $100 and $180

Tatula Elite and Steez XT host same blanks yet at $180 and $300

that leaves the OG Tatula at $150 with the best feature set at almost the cheapest price...

Moral of the story I need 3 maybe 4 rods total
Drop Shot
Shakey Head/Neko/Spider grubs
Swimbaits on 1/4-1/2oz heads

Ideally out of the elite series the 3 that are NOT the AGS models. ML, M, MH and all will have Tatula LT reels.

Again any help in a decision will be greatly appreciated.
