YPRESS, Calif. – The more than 600 competitors in the 2022 Bassmaster High School Championship taking place Aug. 11-13 on South Carolina’s Lake Hartwell will be among the first anglers able to check out Daiwa’s new Tatula XT bass rods. Introduced in July at the tackle industry’s ICAST trade show, the 15-model Tatula XT lineup – nine casting and six spinning rods designed for technique-specific situations and priced at $99.99, has just started shipping to tackle shops throughout the U.S. and Canada within the past week.
“All the activities surrounding the tournament provide Daiwa with the ideal opportunity to showcase much of our new bass fishing tackle from ICAST,” said Will Rodgers, Daiwa’s field marketing manager. “We’ll be displaying and talking tackle, along with casting and flipping demonstrations, with all the anglers during the registration day events at the Anderson Civic Center, and then again with anglers and all their family, friends, and fans at Lake Hartwell’s Green Pond Landing and Event Center weigh-in site on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday afternoons.”
Along with the Tatula XT rods, the Daiwa crew will also be displaying its new Tatula SV70 and Tatula 80 baitcasting reels, along with its flagship Exist spinning reels, all of which were first introduced this past March during the Bassmaster Classic at Lake Hartwell and the Classic Expo in Greenville, S.C.
While the high school anglers compete on Lake Hartwell on Friday, the Daiwa staff will host a breakfast discussion on the past, present and future of the high school and college bass fishing scene with staff from B.A.S.S., along with invited coaches and fishing club volunteers attending the tournament.
