Tatula CT Type R

The Tatula is back and lighter than ever thanks its new, compact design. Introducing the Daiwa Tatula CT (CT – Compact) Type R Casting Reel. Delivering the same level of versatility and performance that made the original a hit with anglers everywhere. Designed to meet the durability and performance requirements of the pro angler Tatula CT offers a rugged gear train, fully supported within rigid aluminium housing.

Loaded with proven technologies, Real Four, Digigear, Magforce Z, CRBB bearings and UTD (Ultimate Tournament Drag) the all-new Tatula CT takes baitcaster reel design to a new level with the introduction of Air Rotation, new generation TWS “T-Wing System, and a new super tuned large capacity spool.

Cutting edge technology, unrivalled design and a price point to impress combine to make the Tatula a must-have for all serious baitcaster lovers. Pick it up, spin the handle, the ultra smooth feel of the precision and quality is unmistakable, and unmistakably Daiwa.

At the heart of the Tatula  is the finest of Daiwa’s designs and innovations – Real Four. Real Engine, Real Control, Real Endurance, and Real Custom combine to make Tatula technically advanced and a pleasure to use. A precision designed solid aluminium frame and gear side plate delivers maximum power and unrivalled durability, while the ergonomically designed reel profile fits effortlessly in the palm of the hand. Tatula CT’s body design supports your fishing style with more sensitivity, control and power.

Cranking comfort is essential for control and power and Tatula utilizes Daiwa’s swept hand design. The 90mm handle delivers maximum cranking power while its swept handle brings the cranking handle closer to the reel’s centre of balance allowing for increased balance, power and comfort. Super sized non-slip paddle knobs and a large armed ratcheted star drag further enhance the reel’s ergonomic and adjustment and cranking capabilities.

The TWS or T-Wing System first released on the T3 represented a huge leap forward in line control with its unparalleled engineering delivering improved casting performance and line control, a reduction in line noise and friction, and greater reel stability and balance. A flawless design that shattered the concept of traditional levelwind systems and set a new standard when it came to line guides.

Smooth just got smoother with Air Rotation, a new technology for the Daiwa that makes turning the handle almost effortless, with a fluid, effortless feel that says precision and performance. At the core of Air Rotation is precision designed and machined gearing, a level of refinement that makes for buttery cranking and unrivalled smoothness when under load. Air Rotation is as light as air and as smooth silk.

Magforce Z is the latest generation of Daiwa’s unique magnetic anti-backlash control for the experienced angler. It combines the best attributes of old-fashioned mechanical braking with today’s advanced magnetic braking technology, and easily adjusts to any skill level to control backlash. With Magforce Z spool start up is faster and the spool spins longer. Tatula CT takes Magforce Z one-step further, with a twenty increment magnetic cast control dial giving anglers even more precision and control.

With a big motor comes the need for some serious brakes and Daiwa’s legendary UTD- Ultimate Tournament Drag has all the stopping power you’ll need to muscle the toughest fish. With 6kg of drag pressure available the Tatula is the reel to handle any fish that’s thrown at it and it does it with silky smooth braking power

Big on features the Tatula delivers anglers the latest spool design. The new Ct or compact design delivers improved castability due to line being able to more freely unwind from the spool. This is further enhanced by the T-Wing System with the wide “casting area” of the T-Wing allowing unrestricted line flow. The lightweight spool of the Tatula combined with T-Wing’s wider aperture means a reduction in line angles, line friction, and backlashes and a vast improvement in casting performance. The all new Tatula CT Type R has set a new standard in casting excellence.

Innovative design, advanced technologies, and rugged construction combine to make the Tatula CT Type R one of the hottest reels in the Daiwa range.

New innovations and unparalleled designs, it’s what you’ve come to expect from the world leader in fishing tackle.
