Impressions of new Tatula rods?

Postby cumara » Mon Sep 24, 2018 7:07 am

Wondering if anyone has fished or handled the new Tatula rods -- balance, weight, sensitivity or other observations? Thanks!

Not digging the new reel seats. They're just like the Curado rods and I don't feel like the Tatula sv reel feels that great on them, but I did not feel a Tatula 100 on it. Really wished Daiwa would've went with one of their own reel seats.

Just grabbed an older Tatula 7' M casting for $89 shipped from a larger retailer. Last one in stock. I like the older rods and time will tell how the newer ones compare.

Too bad, I planed to get new tatula rod as well because I like old tatula regular a lot and own 4 of them. I don't like new curado reel seat either fished with it for a few time and sold afterward.

seems like daiwa's moving away from their seats which really sucks. the airbeam is just so much more comfortable to me than any other rods i have.

This dumb move will cost them a lot of money. They will figure it out.

Held one in local shop...not a fan, didn’t feel comfortable like the older ones
Yield not to misfortunes but advance against them

Best reel seat was the old green handle's, but I am really liking the Elites reel seats. For me part of the allure of Daiwa has always been their reel seats from the old green handles to the Light and Toughs and even the Ballistics had a great reel seat. I am happy they're getting back to cork, but I am just now starting to like the foam. So I am like should a guy wait to see what comes out in cork before getting a fleet of all these new rods?

Anything would be an improvement over the handles on my previous gen. Tatula rods.
I'm eager to handle one in person.

Just got new 2018 Tatula Rod for a replacement of my old broken tip Tatula from Daiwa. Im selling it off, not a fan at all both reeel seat and full cork. I like old Shimano Crucial gen2 (EVA foam) and Old Tatula rod. I might have to go with Phenix Rod instead.
