NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

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.

The new sanded cork are the revised Tatula rods. The Elite rods are still going to be silver with EVA.

As for he Zillion casting reel rumor has it they are being discontinued due to the new Tatula variants.

The new Kage swimbait rods with cork and are pretty sweet looking.

There are new additions to the Elite lineup. Both the 2nd generation Tatula and new Kage rods have cork grips. The Kage rods are using the same blanks as the Tatula Elite, only they are not painted. I'll post some pics later this evening

Too much use of the tribal spider logo in my opinion.

Other than the new tat being solid black, I kinda like it. The rod I use for spinnerbaits (6'9 mh ballistic) has a seat similar to the tat elites, and what looks to be on the new tat rods. The reel sits a little higher than it does on the air beam seats, so a more compact reel should work out pretty good for me.

The head scratcher for me is the 7'4 glass spinnerbait/bladed jig rod. I would love to have a mh glass rod from Daiwa that was under 7'. I'm not generally making long casts with spinnerbaits or squarebills, and a shorter rod would work great for that.

I'm just sitting back smiling thinking about blowout prices on the Zillion SV TW, much like they did the Zillion TWS... would be so clutch to get a new in box SV TW for like $175

I don't think I could resist buying another one. I was thrilled with the $225 deal I got on an open box one from ebay the first month it came out.

I have nothing but good things to say about the Zillion SV TW. The spool and magnet combo is pretty much perfection IMO with 30lb 8 carrier braid. It is lightish and smooth a just works great for everything. I can see how the mag dial could rub some peoples' fingers the wrong way, but I don't touch it the way I palm.

I have a Tat TypeR HS that is similarly good. I have a DIY spool in it and use it to throw 1/8-3/8 oz smaller baits. So much fun to fish with.

Hopefully the new Tat uses spools that interchange with one of the CT framed reels.

Is your DIY spool in the old big sized Tat or CT Tatula??? I have thought about one for my old Type R...

It is a CT size. I always forget to add that. The OGs were just a bit too big for me. I haven't used a DIY in an OG Tat. If you like the reel though, I'm certain the DIY will add some casting benefits. They are noisy spools though if that sort of thing bothers you.

I agree with the "noise". I did a BFS review for the Zillion TWS and it to this day is raspy when casting or retrieving quickly.

The Tatula 100 is on the Daiwa site along with a new video with clearer shots of the reel.

Image

Looks like the paint is a satin finish rather than a matte black. It looks almost Steez like in this pic.
Image

The palming plate looks flatter in shape and not curved like the Steez.
