|Just when you thought the in-demand Tatula reel family couldn’t get any better, Daiwa unleashes the new Tatula 300, a true 300-size reel for throwing big bass baits. Daiwa’s progressive product development team redesigned the new Tatula to bring anglers a slightly larger option perfect for a variety of applications including outsized, deep-diving crankbaits, swimbaits, A rigs, and more.
In short, it’s the perfect option for anglers fishing large presentations for even larger fish. What really makes The Daiwa Tatula 300 so special is the inclusion of the T-Wing System level-wind. When you take the reel out of gear it allows for less resistance on the line, allowing the line to cast further.
Daiwa’s spool lets anglers finely tune the spool tension while the T-Wing System level-wind opens up line feed, working together to cast longer, more accurately, and provide stress-free control when chunking into the wind, skipping baits or casting large lures.
The T-Wing System is also very efficient at reducing backlashes on the 300-size reel with large spool. It does this by reducing the angle of the line coming off the spool and spool speed, providing efficient operation unlike anything on the market in this reel class.
The new Tatula 300 also features Daiwa’s patented Magforce magnetic casting system which is located on the exterior of the reel making adjustments easy to make depending on wind conditions, the rods you’re fishing, and overall aerodynamics of the baits you’re throwing. Internally, the reel has much bigger gears for handing big baits and fish, necessitated by the aluminum frame which allows space for the larger gears in precise alignment, and subsequently, much more power and torque.
|Behold, a new standard in freshwater to inshore spinning reel offerings, the Kage MQ LT. The word Kage is derived from the Japanese for "In The Shadows."
The Kage MQ LT is available in five sizes from a 1000 model for panfish and smaller freshwater fish to the KGTMQ4000D-CXH which fits the bill nicely for inshore applications and larger freshwater fish. The Kage MQ LT is rich in its feature set.
First, the reel series features a one-piece MONOCOQUE Zaion body that allows more space in the reel body for larger gears that allow more torque and power from the get-go at the same gear ratios of competitive reels.
The Kage family of reels is also Magsealed, features an Air Rotor and Air Bail, A7075 aircraft grade aluminum Digigear technology, Advanced Tournament Drag (ATD), Kage logoed premium cork handle knobs, and a machined aluminum screw-in handle.
|For a higher level of performance, the Daiwa Procyon AL spinning reel family is back for the attack whether that means freshwater or inshore applications. From speckled trout, redfish, and snook to bass, walleye, and trout, the Procyon AL offers anglers the perfect reel for the pursuit.
In terms of application, the Procyon AL is available in five sizes from the PCNAL2000D model for freshwater fish to the PCNAL4000D-C, which fits the bill nicely for inshore applications and larger freshwater fish.
The Procyon AL is rich in its feature set. First, the reel series features an aluminum body that allows more less body and frame flex providing better support on the gears and bearings allowing increased torque and power while also allowing longer life to the gears. Anglers will find that the aluminum body of the Procyon AL is incredibly lightweight when they pick it up and put it on their favorite rod.
The Procyon AL also features an air rotor engineered to be very rigid, especially at high drag pressures with little flex. The Procyon AL also has generous cut-outs in its engineering design, which reduces the weight of the rotor. The new reels also showcase a tubular air bail that reduces weight and offers more rigidity than standard wire, so you get less flex and bending or breaking. The tubular air bail is also manufactured with thicker material that feels good on the fingers when flipping the bail by hand.
Another element of the series is DIGIGEAR technology, digitally cut to reduce weight, and considerably better gear meshing increase smoothness and gear wear.
The Procyon AL family features Long Cast ABS spool as well. The design of the spool's lip allows the line to exit the reel at a much tighter cone-shaped angle, meeting the guide train with less resistance and force, alleviating wind knots and allowing for longer casts.
