"Best" Baitcaster for $125.00 or less?

Recommended Posts

I love the Daiwa Tatulas.  I currently own 4 of them and plan plan on purchasing more.  I was using Lews and Quantum reels until I found a deal too good to pass up on the Daiwa Tatulas.  I'll never go back.  Smooth drag, easy to dial in, durable, cast a mile.  I just add one drop of oil to the bearings once a week and never have problems with them.

Of all of my reels, my Tatula 100 with flushed bearings, SmoothDrag Greased bearings on the Worm and an oiled Boca Ceramic Lightning bearing under the drag star is the most refined. It feels a bit chunky and clunky, but it’s definitely the smoothest and most refined.

 

Cost a little more than $125 - I definitely recommend it in this price range.

I know what you mean. The Daiwas are too big around the top by the levelwind. The Abus and Shimanos are tapered in at the top.
