Seaguar Tatsu

Recommended Posts

If you have interest in giving this line a try, it is currently on sale.

Tatsu is the finest line I have ever fished.

Still more expensive than sniper...

Smackdown is at a good price though

It's close at the sale price, and it's a much better line than sniper.

 

I was going to buying some during the holidays sales but ended up ordering some sunline sniper instead, mainly because tastu is like 10$ more at normal sales price...

For me 10 bucks isn't close. That's a lil john crank right there!

Tatsu is the ****! Gift cards are 10% off too, for just a little extra discount.

Thanks for the heads up RW! Just picked up 3 spools at that price. I'm used to paying $35+ for only 164 yds. of TORAY, so that's a steal (relatively speaking - LOL). Can't wait to try it. Heard nothing but good about it.

Now that I've made the decision to go with all Yo-Zuri except for one braided slop rig, you've all got me second guessing myself.

 

Why should I get Tatsu?  And what applications would be best suited for it?  I typically carry 4 spinning and 3 casting; along with 3 spinning for my wife. 

 

I value simplicity and thought I was getting there....lol

You don't *need* the line... :smiley:

 

Yo-Zuri is fantastic for most everything you 

throw. Some folks still catch plenty of bass 

on mono...

 

I've got some fluorocarbon line - XPS - and I

will use it, but nowhere near as frequent as 

Yo-Zuri Hybrid.

I don't get the guys that spend several hundred setting up a combo but won't pony up for the best line they can find... It's like buying a lambo and putting $50 a corner tires on it to save money lol

Unless you're spooling like 10 combos I don't understand the obsession with saving a few dollars on line of all things. Heck, spend a million bucks on a combo and the line is STILL the only thing that keeps the bait- and the fish- on it.

I have been fishing Yo-Zuri for more than a decade and it is still my most fished line.

I use Tatsu on a dedicated jig rig and as leader for braided line.

Yes I have, but I am currently spooled up with Yo-Zuri Hybrid #4 (8.5 lb breaking strength).

Tatsu is Fantastic line!  It is not the same as sniper and closer to Sunline shooter...

Tatsu is my bottom contact line as its dense and very tough line!

But your opinion of what is the best may not 

be that of others... What if Yo-Zuri is the best 

that someone has found? That Tatsu is "the 

best" is subjective. RW said it's the finest he's

used, others agree, others don't.

 

RW has stated P-Line Floroclear is one of the

worst lines he's ever used. I, others have a

completely different experience and opinion.

 

Yo-Zuri and P-line have been fantastic for me.

Lost very few fish on them. Don't feel like I put 

"corner tires" on my 50e or Stradic combos...

If what you're using works for you, don't worry about it. Using the best is definitely nice, but not a necessity. I could get by spending way less than I spend, but I can and I enjoy it, so I do.

 ...others have a completely different experience and opinion.

 

That statement is so true.  Isn't it great to have so many options available?

I suggest people experiment several different lines. For the past year or so 

I have been fishing a number of brands: Seaguar Red Label, InvizX, AbrazX,

Tatsu and Kanzen; TUF-Line Heavy Core, Tournament 8 and Supercast;

Izorline, Sniper and Sunline Super Natural, Berkley NanoFil and P-Line CXX.

 

So, part of this was using sponsored line and the rest just to have a "hands-on"

experience with these other lines. I have stated my opinions, BUT "your results

will vary".

Oh, I would never assume to know what is "best" for everyone, and I think technology is changing fast enough that even the most seasoned would be well suited to keep paying attention and trying new things.  Each user, location, setup and method will result in a different "favorite" and no one of those people are wrong either!    

 

My comment was just to say basically for the guys who have really nice combos but find it hard to spend the extra $15 or whatever on the line they really like the best...  IMO the line is the great decider, and the last place I'd want to skimp.  It's all personal.  If you like Hybrid, CXX, etc. then by all means buy them as they are fantastic lines and I don't think they're "inferior" at all fwiw.  I certainly didn't mean to besmirch them in any way by encouraging people to spend on line and in fact include lines like that- Heck, I'm about to pick up a spool of CXX myself.  Lots of people would consider even CXX or Hybrid splurging too, but if you like Tatsu the best and have invested in a killer combo...  Just do it I say!   :grin:  Life is too short to not be using the gear you really want to.  That's all I was getting at, not "The more you spend the better it is and anything that isn't $50 a spool is crap line" at all.

You really don't hear that many complaints about mono, hybrid/copoly or braid on these boards. But if you've spent any time hanging out in this section of the forums, you sure as heck have heard all the complaints and gripes about fluorocarbon. Of all the possible line options, it is probably the one that you really need to splurge a bit on to at least say you've tried one of the best out there before totally discounting it and not using it. At that price, for what many consider to be one of the top fluoro lines on the market, you can't go wrong, IMO. Plus, being 200 yd spools, you'll get you 2 spool fill-ups for that price :)

On sale where?

 

I just bought some from TW but I haven't spooled it on yet. I have a new Edge rod on the way and a Curado I to put on it.
