New Tatula spinning reel


Recommended Posts

I bought the 2018 model 3 weeks ago at a steep discount. Figured the updated model was coming soon.

 

The MQ seems to add a bit of weight when comparing the old and new ballistic. Will be curious of the specs and reviews of the new model.

 

Haven't used the 2018 model yet, but initial improvements are positive.

Wonder if Daiwa did away with the 1000 and 2000 sizes since they are not listed. Also the 3000 and 4000 sizes are not included.

Maybe to be released at a later date?

Looks like a nice design.

 

But I'm good, yesterday Amazon delivered 2 Tatula LTs, a 3000-CXH and a 4000-CXH. Maybe they'll have a deep, deep, deep discount sale somewhere. Get some backups for the backups. Maybe another 2500 and 5000.

Yeah I’m building a new spinning rod for wacky rigs.  I may need to look into this reel for it.  I like my bait-casting tatula’s.  
 

Only time I’ve ever reeled back wards is trout fishing trying to get a rapala under dead falls. 
 

what is it going to retail for?  About the same as the bait casters ?

I cant see this new Hyper Marketing edition Tatula being anything under 300$ if the main is AL.  Even if the main is that BS zinc Daiwa has no problem asking top $ for it, just look at Saltist MQ, a 300$+ spinner with a cast zinc main.  Theyre really doing a number on the USDM reels.

So this is replacing the LT? Doesn't seem like that's been out that long but maybe so. 

Yep, Ballistic and Procyon LT are no longer made, which is weird because they still make the old Saltist spinners.

I believe Daiwa introduced Tatula LT to North America market since Icast 2017 perfect timing to upgrade to complete with Vanford.
I don’t see why Daiwa would price Tatula more than Vanford. Procyon MQ which is a class lower and usually use Zinc gear but same frame material Zion V and price at 179 MSRP. I expect Tatula would use same AL main gear as previous model.

That just means the Tatula LT goes on sale. Not too big a fan of MQ. They are noticeably heavier than the Shimanos in the same size. I was really liking the LT last time I handled one.

Didn't know they ised zinc for gears...I thought aluminum was an inexpensive metal.

I'm cool with my Tatula LT.  I use  it more often than my Vanford, if I am being honest.  

 

yesterday, I had both out.  and I was casting an reeling, NOT thinking about which was which.  I didnt notice the differences..

I just got the JDM Tatula LT not long ago too.  2500 Shallow spool.  I better get the bearing kit from hedgehog studio before they switch to the new model. But I'm sure they'll still support the previous model for awhile

Weight? Hindsight 2020 I might got one of each instead of two lts, but not disappointed in the lts by any means, only thing that attracted me to the lt was the spider colors

I could probably notice weight except I have them on different rods.   But yea, unmounted the reeks are different in weight.

How long until the board is inundated with " my tatula lays line too far forward" issues from the tapered ABS spool?  I remember that being an issue with the fuego lt reels.  There was thread after thread to complain and fix the intentional tapered line lay of the ABS spools by adding a shim or something to counteract the intentional tapered line lay.

Yeah, plus I like the taper, it was designed that way I hear

If they do not offer smaller sizes, this is a pass for me. The 2000 size is Daiwa's happy size for spinning reels for what I use spinning tackle for

From what I understand, again not own it just from what I follow Daiwa line up, the FC (finesse custom) model is equivalent to compact (C) of previous generation model like Luvias FC2500 is 5.5oz compare to LT2500 6.3oz. This might not be true with this Tatula though. I have Ballistic FW C2500 which use pretty much the same body as Tatula 2000 but even bigger diameter spool.
We have to wait until Daiwa release Tatula for North America.

Talking about this Tatula, the only good thing I see is Airdrive rotor with also Zaion V meterial. The Zaion rotor would make the reel even smoother and lower inertia. 
I would think MQ body even on 2000 size reel would be larger compare to old LT2000.
