Daiwa Tatula Type R Casting Reels

The Tatula Type R casting reels are designed to meet the demands of serious bass fishermen engineered for durability and performance yet priced reasonably. When developing the Tatula Reels, Daiwa set out to capture the ultra-competitive $150 - $200 reel market. Instead of updating the appearance or renaming old models they started from scratch with the intention of first creating a reel that performed flawlessly, then worrying about the price. The Tatula has exceeded all expectations and created a buzz within the bass fishing world stirring up interest months before it even became available for purchase.

The Tatula Type R is an incredibly technically sound reel constructed of high quality components not typically found in sub $200 reels. The rigid, aluminum frame provides the perfect strength and durability to house the internal components of the reel. The strength of the material ensures the reel will never bend under pressure and maintain its integrity for years of use and abuse. The gear system is much stronger increasing the cranking power immeasurably and is facilitated by the reels oversized handle and reel grips that enable the full force of the angler to be focused in the right place. No longer are you applying pressure to fight the reel, its all against the fish. Daiwa's ultimate tournament drag system applies up to 13.2lbs of drag, quite a lot for a low profile casting reel.

While the strength and durability are undeniable, the reel really stands out with its smooth nature in both its reeling and casting. The reel's casting prowess can be directly contributed to Daiwa's re-design of the TWS T-Wing Casting System - their older T-wing was taken back into the lab and enhanced to increase casting distance and accuracy allowing line to flow freely from the spool. Daiwa’s T-Wing System solves an age old problem with baitcasting reel levelwind systems. The “T” aperture allows line to flow freely through the wide top section on outcast, reducing the normally sharp angles and friction that slow line flowing through a narrow aperture when exiting the reel. For retrieve, line drops into the narrow, lower channel of the T wing for even distribution across the spool width.This was achieved by housing the entire system within the reel itself making it much easy to handle. Daiwa's new Air Rotation System is also a key ingredient in the reel's smoothness delivering effortless winding with a free spinning rotation of the handle. Speaking of the reel's spool, the Tatula Type R possesses a new, wider, yet lighter, aluminum spool that doesn't increase the reels frame size keeping it quite palmable.

Type R Features:

The Tatula Type R possesses a few key unique features that set it apart from the standard versions. First and foremost the Type R displays the unique red metallic accents of the spool tension knob, cast control dial and the spool itself. Additionally, the Type R logo designation rests atop the reel frame. Technically, this reel distinguishes itself with a lighter aluminum spool and helical cut-themed ported frame - reducing the weight of the reel by 10 grams - 215 grams compared to the Tatula 100's 225 grams. The Type R Tatula also offers anglers a super fast 8.1:1 gear ration boasting a 86cm line retrieve per turn. The 8 bearing system of the Type R consists of 2 corrosion resistant bearings as well.

Incredibly smooth January 23, 2017
Reviewer: Skandy from Rohnert Park  
Got on the water with my new Diawa Type-R and couldn't believe how smooth this reel casts. Makes long casts with very little effort. I've been using my old Shimano Bantum Curados for over 15 years and it was like night and day. Made my old Curados feel like junk so I went back and bought 2 more. External magnet adjustments is a plus. No more taking off the side plate to make changes. Get them while you can.
