I am looking to sell my set of five (5) Daiwa Tatula Tactical casting reels. The Daiwa Tatula Tactical reels were a Daiwa special edition and only offered by Tackle Warehouse for a limited time. They have recently discontinued them. The Tatula Tactical has a beautiful no-frills matte black finish. I purchased three of the 100HSL model reels in December 2015 for $153 each. They didn't see a lot of use because I bought them in the winter and I was deployed the second half of 2016. I bought the high speed 100XSL in Jan 2017 when I got back, and another 100HSL in March 2017. I have only used them collectively about 10 times. I intended to at least buy one more reel, but more likely three more because I like to run a 6-8 rod setup. I was (slowly) replacing my old Abu/Bass Pro gear with these reels and G.Loomis E6X rods (not for sale). Had I known they were going to discontinue them I would have bought sooner. I'm also slightly OCD and don't want to introduce different reels into the mix at this point. If you are a serious fishermen, or serious about any sport, I'm sure you can relate on some level.

All reels are LEFT handed models. The 100HSL has the 7.3:1 gear ratio which is good for general use. Two of the HSLs have 15lb P-Line fluro on them, one HSL has 20lb P-line Fluro (all new this year), and one HSL has 20lb Sufix 832 braid (new Jan 2016, but not used much at all). The 100XSL has the fast 8.1:1 gear ratio which I have on my flippin stick, and it has 30lb Sufix 832 braid (new this year). The Tatula Tactical reel compares one-for-one with the more expensive Tatula 100 Type-R, which retails for $200. I store my rods/reels inside the house, with reel covers and rod socks on. All of the reels are in excellent condition and function perfectly. They have never seen salt water -- I only fish fresh. I am looking to sell the set of five reels together-- not piecemeal.

I am in to these for $750 (plus another $100 for line). Asking $650 for the set. Serious inquires only. Cash only. No low ballers.

Located in Houston, but I i'm in Austin monthly. Email me for more pics.

Exclusively available at Tackle Warehouse, the new Daiwa Tatula Tactical Casting Reel delivers the advanced lightweight performance of the premier Tatula reels. Designed to handle when other reels fold, the Tatula Tactical is loaded with advanced features and cloaked in a classic matte black finish complete with black accents. Daiwa’s new hybrid TWS T-Wing Casting System delivers unequaled long casting capabilities and accuracy, as well as, a more natural, free fall for your lures. Fully housed inside the Tatula Tactical’s durable, feather-light Aluminum Frame, the new Hybrid TWS System is easy to handle and allows the reel frame to maintain its incredible rigidity and strength.

Daiwa also engineered a wider, super lightweight A7075 Aluminum spool into the Tatula Tactical’s compact frame to provide increased line capacity, while maintaining a frame width comparable to that of the TD Zillion. A larger, stronger drive gear in conjunction with a longer, over-sized 100mm handle delivers the winding power you need to turn the heads of big fish, and the Ultimate Tournament Drag System dishes out 13.2lbs of max drag and stays smooth to slow big fish down. Designed purely for performance, the Daiwa Tatula Tactical Casting Reel is everything a tournament angler could hope for from their go-to casting reel.
