How many of you use the Tatula CT reel? I went to Bass Pro a few weeks ago because I had gotten a sale circular and the way they had it listed, it appeared that it was 20% off. One of my reels had just broken and the timing was right. When I got there, the ad only meant the BPS reels were 20% off. They told me that Lew;s made their reels for them so I almost bought one but at the last moment decided to get the Tatula anyway to try. I am really impressed with it so far. Casts great with no backlashes even if you don't thumb it. Pitching light baits is a breeze with no adjustments made. I am going to use this for a while and if I keep having the same results, I am going to slowly replace all my reels with it.

I've been using Lews and like them but this thing blows them away.

All I use now, from the tatula CT to CTR. 8.1:1 ratio. Great reels

I order them on Amazon from ABC sales. Usually $30-$50 off

Well, you answered your own question. I backlash toilet paper, but have trouble getting the CTs backlashed. Plus they are light and cast a mile. All of Diawa's Tatula series reels are excellent. I was a loyal Lew's user but now have more Diawas than Lew's. They are both good reels but I prefer the Diawas.

My Tatula CTR is my favorite reel. I have several Lee’s also, but the CTR is my favorite. Like you said, it really excels at throwing light baits like my small square bills.

I have bought several of the Tatula reels in the last two years. My favorite as well. I think the T Wing System really helps with the long casts.

I love them, impossible to backlash and cast far. I've got all 8.1:1. I grab them off ebay for about $90 each with free shipping from an Authorized Reseller. Two weeks ago it said I had a coupon and got 2 for $82 each with free shipping. Not bad for a $130 reel.

Edit-
I just checked and they are still on sale for about that same price until the 24th. The seller I used was "alpha2omega" who is a Diawa dealer. They show up as $96, then use the code PLAYFUL15 for another 15% off with free shipping. I've bought several from him with no issues and he has 52,000 5 star feedback so it all seems legit.

Are you guys using the 100 or 200 series? I'm still using a bunch of the old Curado Greenies but the 200 series. The smaller ones just seem to create too much line memory. I looked on Ebay at alpha2omega's and didn't see the bigger series at the prices mentioned. Ready to start upgrading but don't want the smaller series except for maybe one for chunking small crankbaits around docks, etc where short casts are the norm.

Thanks Wes H
I've been looking to get a new tatula. Found the sale you were talking about. Bought two! You should get a commission.

Just got a Zillion HD from this seller for Father's day, no problems what so ever. All I use are Daiwa reels, might call me a Daiwa fan boy lol. I just call it brand loyal.

I have a Zillion TWS. @$300, I'd say forget the "free spool" and buy 3 Tatulas. Much better money spending, as there isn't even close to 3x the difference. In fact, I'd say negligible difference.
