Equipment Review: The Daiwa Tatula 100

Western Outdoor NewsPublished: May 15, 2019

Pushing the envelope in terms of compact, dependable design


The Tatula 100 is the smallest and lightest Tatula ever in the series. It is the most comfortable and palmable reel seen in many years. And with a feather weight of 6.9 ounces it may be the lightest, most fatigue free, reel Daiwa has ever built. The Zero Adjuster spool setting and T-Wing System level wind, casts longer and more accurately. The comfort is enhanced by redesigned Soft Touch Handle Knobs. The reel is also well suited for junior anglers with smaller hands.

The bones of the reel are strong with an Aluminum Frame providing rigidity and a smooth performance. A smart Matte Black Finish with Tatula Spider tatoo Graphics complete the look. The reel fills a niche for a light line bait caster and is ideal for finesse applications.

The reel is available in Standard ( 6.3:1) and High Speed (7.3:1) in left or right hand crank, Hyper speed (8.1:1) is available in right hand crank only. When you consider a small, light, palmable baitcaster, look no furthur then the TATULA 100, the state of the art in baitcasters.
