Daiwa Tatula Baitcasting Reels – A New Species

CYPRESS, California – New TATULA reels are engineered to offer the durability and performance required for professional-level fishing. Precision of the reel is quickly felt with a simple spin of the handle – – super smooth and vibration free, it’s what Daiwa calls Air Rotation. It’s what happens when you take Japanese precision gear design and house it in a rock-solid one-piece aluminum frame.

For all-out casting performance, TATULA’S levelwind is unlike anything you’ve seen before, a hybrid design with the durability of a standard levelwind – – the casting performance of Daiwa’s T-Wing casting aperture. Punch the clutch and again there’s that unmistakable crisp feel of precision as the rotating guide toggles into place. Make a cast and the smooth, easy outflow of line lets you feel the difference right away.

TATULA not only offers many Daiwa’s most advanced features, they also represent an exceptional value with ultra-fine tuned Type-R models retailing for $199.95 while standard models retail for just $149.95.
