Daiwa Tatula 150 versus Tatula CT: Deep Cranking

Recommended Posts

With one of my goals this year being learning to fish lakes and starting from the most glaring difference between lakes and my comfort zone, ponds and rivers, being the offshore bite, I've decided that with the summer heat quickly rising and my first lake trip with the kayak being about a month away, I want to finally purchase a deep cranking setup.

 

I'll be sticking the reel on a 13 F-a-t-e C-h-r-o-m-e 7'9" cranking stick and hoping I like the rod.  I like that normal series of rod, so that makes sense to me.

 

My question is, am I going to see a noticeable difference with my casting distance between the Tatula 150 and Tatula CT?

 

I'll be spooling one of the two with 12# fluoro and tossing Berkley Dredger 17.5s to 25.5s, for those who want more specifics.

Distance will be the same , I'd go with the 150 , it has a aluminum side plate handle side. 10 lb mono.

If the casting distance difference is gonna be negligible, I'm gonna save thirty bucks and grab the CT.  The smaller reel will work better for my baby hands.

 

I was mostly just wondering if the 100mm handle will make a difference when it comes to deep plugging all day long.

150 is just the original Tatula with the big handle and updated Twing. I'd save the money too.

Not the 5.5:1 gear ratio, it's RH.
