Tatula 100 and light lures?

Recommended Posts

What's everyone's experience with magforce z and light lures, specifically the tatula 100. I'm looking at throwing a 1/8 ounce shakey head with a 6 inch straight tail roboworm. That's the most finesse thing I choose get away with on my local lakes.

Lures in that weight range are also aided by using the correct rod. I throw 1/8oz tubes /w a tatula 100 but I'm also using a rod that is meant for that.

^^^^ good advice ^^^^

I have a Fuego CT100, almost identical to the Tatula 100. I put a Ray's Studio BFS spool on it to cast light stuff. Here's what I found out:

   1) It casts 1/6 oz. lures very, very well. Your worm-n-jig weighs more than that. Accuracy is good, and distance is consistent.

   2) It hates braid. Loves mono (6 or 8 lb. Stren) but it hates braid.

   3) I had to go to a Daiwa 7' UL rod to get distance. Even then, I would estimate only 75 feet with .16 oz. lures, and not a heck of a lot more with 1/5 oz.

   4) Control of the cast, however, was great. Superb, even. That's with mono.

   5) Oh yeah .... it hates braid. Did I mention that?

   6) This particular spool is actually labelled "Tatula 100", but it also works for the Fuego. So I wasn't using some weird 'thing that isn't applicable to you.

   Hope this helps.  jj
