Equipment Review: Daiwa’s New Tatula Bass Rods

Western Outdoor NewsPublished: Apr 19, 2019

Incorporating the latest, cutting edge rod technology


Daiwa is thrilled at the arrival of a new line of bass rods that cover the gamut of a modern bass fisherman’s needs. The brand new Tatula line of bass rods are finely crafted with state-of-the-art components. With seven categories of rods and 21 different bends, the Tatula collection is a most complete professional collection of bass rods. There are 7 spinning designs, 6 casting models, 2 flipping rods, 2 shallow crank/jerkbait rods, 3 glass cranking and spinnerbait rods and a frogging rod. The beautifuly crafted natural cork handles provide timeless functionality combined with a sure grip. A slick Tatula spider graphic adorns the classic formed handles. The lighter X-45 concept blanks are rolled with Braiding-X fiber braiding technology. The reduced weight blank resists ovalization allowing greater hoop strength loads for a more precisioned load-up. The tangle-free Fuji FazLite guides allow long, accurate casts.

If you are looking for a professional grade bass rod designed with a specific purpose in mind, then take a look at the Tatula line of bass rods where we’ve built one just for the task.
