I have high speed CTs for my Texas rigging and jig fishing. Wondering how much better the 100s are. I like the CT but my only real gripe is that they don’t palm that well IMO. Anyone have any insight.

I personally much preferred the ct to the 100. Really wasnt much difference in palming the reels and the ct just felt more solid and I preferred it in every way. Plus they're cheaper so it was a no brainer. Both nice reels but I sold the 100 pretty quickly

The CT series is smoother during retrieve. The 100 may be slightly smaller, but as Shimano1 stated I don't think there is much of a difference in feel.

I think the 150 Tatula is the least talked about Daiwa reel, but one of the best, smoothest, strongest out there.

I have a CT and had a 100. The only reason I was interested in the 100 was for the zero adjuster. There is nothing that the 100 does better than the CT. They cast the same distance wise. The 100 also had issues with the drag slipping on hooksets. Sent it to Daiwa and they "fixed" it, the issue continued. Ended up selling the reel and just cutting my loses. 

 

My vote goes CT.

I think the CT palms better, but the 100 feels more solid.

The 100 feels super solid to me. Haven't used a CT but I'd buy another 100 in a heartbeat.

I have the CT, CT type r and the 100’s. The 100’s are better to me palming wise. Cast and retrieve- they are all similar. All great reels.

I’ve only used my 100 a few times. The CT feels better in my hands, but that could be because I’m not used to using a reel as small as the 100. As previously stated, they both feel the same on cast and retrieve. For $109 at SO , the Tat 100 is a great deal. I wouldn’t pay retail of $150 for one though, I’d spend the money on a SV.

OP if you can get an SV for $150, I would jump all over it.

I have multiple CT Type Rs and SVs. I have held the 100 in hand at the store and even thought is light I feel like the components are downgraded cheaper.

SV’s can be bought for $167 on EBay. I doubt he wants a SV because they are the same size frame as CT. He’s looking for a smaller, more palmable reel, which would be the 100.

So from what I’m hearing, the only real thing the 100 has over the CT is that the 100 palms slightly better. Any thoughts on how the zero adjust deal works?

Zero adjust means that the spool tension is preset from factory in the optimal tension (very minimal spool side to side play) so the user only has to adjust the mag breaks. You can still adjust the spool tension. It's harder to do on my SteezSVTWs but it's easier to adjust on my Steez A's and Tatula 100s. If you've been using a reel for longer than 2 weeks, "zero adjust" features can be ignored and should have zero bearing on buying/using a reel. 

 

I prefer the 100 over the CT. The 100 is slightly larger than the Steez SVTW/Steez a frame and palms great. Performance wise, they're nearly identical. The 100 spool is "lighter" but nothing to write home about. They aren't "identical" inside, I.E you can't swap many parts, but material wise -gears, bushings/bearings in spots, they're the same. Mind you, both of these reels are mass produced, entry level reels. Both of my Tatula 100s very under greased. Opened them up, cleaned them, re lubed, and they are uncharacteristically smooth for a 100$ reel.

 

you can get the 100 at sportsman warehouse for 109$ every day.

High speed ones are sold out.....I’m starting to think that I just just go with the SV’s since these will be used for pitching and skipping a lot.

if you plan on skipping and pitching the SV will be worth the little extra money. 

The SV spool makes it effortless.

I like my CT's also but when switching back from the SV, it takes a few casts to get my thumb retrained.

They sell out and then get more , I've seen their stock appear the next day. Maybe call and they can give you a heads up.
