Tatula Swimbait Rods

Cutting-edge design, state of the art materials and pimped out with Daiwa’s latest technology the Tatula Swimbait series concept is ultimate casting performance versus ultimate value, the ideal rod for big lure fishing.

The heart of any rod is its blank, for the Tatula SB a new blank was designed, featuring Daiwa’s highest quality carbon, SVF, the most sensitive carbon ever manufactured. SVF or Super Volume Fibre is one of Daiwa’s proudest achievements in carbon fibre design. SVF combines incredibly dense packed fibres, precision unidirectional fibre with virtually zero resin, the end result is a blank that is hyper sensitive, delivering incredible connectivity between angler and fish, and does so with feather light precision. The SB rods have one unique feature, a telescopic butt section. Rather than a tradition 2 piece construction the SB rods use a tel butt section for superior strength and quick easy collapse without the need for unrigging for storage.

For Tatula SVF just isn’t enough for ultimate performance. Two of Daiwa’s premier blank technologies, X45 and Bias Wrap Construction, work seamlessly together to improve rod performance, and eliminate blank twist and distortion to increase rod strength, function, and sensitivity. By eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form, X45 and Bias Wrap Construction allows a lighter a small diameter blank to be made, and lighter more dynamic rod to be created.

By combing all our technologies the design outcome is a blank with minimal thickness, heightened sensitivity, lightness, and unsurpassed power and strength.

Sensitivity needs to transverse into the reel and for this Tatula utilizes Daiwa’s ergonomically designed, sensitive and immovable, surround hold reel seat. Light, refined and ultimately comfortable, the ultra sensitive, low profile reel seat keeps the reel close to the blank not only for comfort and less bulk but is designed to transmit the slightest vibration from the blank into your hand.

Tatula features the world leader in guides – Fuji, the range features ultra-light Fuji Alconite guides that are highly sensitive, ultra strong and designed to maximise rod performance and sensitivity.
