What reel would you guys prefer

Recommended Posts

I have a tatula, casts a mile. My only gripe is that it is a bit big for my small hands and feels huge when I switch from a Revo or Curado. But it performs very well. I use mine for small poppers an topwaters.

For the cost I would just go with the Daiwa 100 which can be had for $94 or less on Ebay.

I have not fished any of these reels but I would go with the zillion if I had the opportunity of choosing one.

The Diawa Tatula Hd is just a deeper spooled version of the regular Tatula, The Tactical I believe is just a house branded reel for Tackle Warehouse . it claims an improved lighter spool holding more line but the reel specs are exactly the same as a standard Tatula no lighter, no more bearings, no more line capacity. As for the Zillion the weight is reduced by like .4 ounces and claims two more bearings which I believe they put in the knobs on the handle (the Tatulas have 2 bushings and two bearings in them) All of the Tatula, Tatula Type Rs, Tatula CT and Tatula CT Type R, as well as the Zillion retail within $50 of each other. If I want to save a bit of money i would choose between the regular Tatula 100 and the Tatula CT. If I did not mind spending a little more I would chose between the Tatula Type R and the Tatula CT type R.  If you like a bit smaller reel choose the CT version if you do not mind the size of the original Tatulas pick  a100 or Type R.  I fish a total of 5 Diawas, some Tatula 100s and some Tatula type rs. I love them all and they all perform the same.  To me the only good reason to pay extra for the type R is to get an 8-1 gear ratio like for my froggiing.

Just get the tatula then upgrade the worm gear bushings to bearings and add two bearings to the knobs and bam you are in business!!!!

Hedgehog has a bunch of colored duralumin parts for these reels. I have a tatula with lime green screws, worm gear shaft etc it matches my fury perfect lol
