Tatula 100 impression??

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.

I wish that thing didn’t have such a big line capacity. That surprised me.

Do you know if it switches spools with the Tatula CT and CT-R??? If so I figure the Aliexpress spools would be great in it. Just still hoping the have a Zillion version where I don't buy another Steez A...

I too would like a confirmation on Tatula CT spool compatibility and am holding out hope for an upgraded Zillion version next year. I wouldn't be surprised if they give it the SV treatment like the CT at some point as well.

I have no idea. It was just an observation on the specs. I’d expect a lighter, shallower spool in a reel this size.

Thanks for confirming. That is great to know. Does the stock spool seem similar to the Tat Type R Spool? Do you have a scale to weight them? Thanks in advance.

How does it cast compared to some of Daiwa's higher end offerings?

Aliexpress is cheapest but Ebay has them too for roughly $10 more. Both seem to be out of stock of the deeper DIY Long Cast.
