Daiwa Tatula Tactical?

Recommended Posts

So, I've heard mixed reviews about Daiwa products. The Tatula Tactical looks pretty sweet to me and I was looking for

some honest opinions on whether or not it is worth the money.

If you heard mixed reviews on Daiwa reels they were more than likely not from Daiwa users. 

Having said that, the Tactical is a Tackle Warehouse only version. it would not be your best option.

The only version Tackle Warehouse has left in inventory is a 7.3-1 left handed reel. They have sold out of all of the other stock. Most likely Daiwa is no longer building it for them.  Cabelas had a special version of the Tatulas built for them also.


The best option is to go with your choice of a right handed reel in 5.5, 6.3, 7.3, or 8.1 gear ratio reel.  Left handed reels are available in a 6.3 and 7.3 to 1 gear ratios.  8.1 lefties are available in the Type R reels only.


Personally I fish with 1 Exceler, 4 original sized Tatula Type Rs, and 2 of the smaller version Tatula CTs. I love them all, they are amazing reels regardless of their price. If you send me an email at fishnkamp@comcast.net  then I will share a supplier that can sell you any CT version for $100 shipped to your door.  Otherwise they retail for around $129.
