The Tatula SV 103 Limited Baitcaster Looks Like a Keeper
Introduction: Daiwa has a long history of catering to tackle enthusiasts
and while the company has been focused on expanding their mainstream offering in
the last few seasons it is good to see they haven't forgotten their roots. This
season the company is adding some extra features and styling to their popular
Tatula line with a new limited edition.
Pro Angler and Daiwa Prostaffer Cody Meyer shows us the
final production Daiwa Tatula Limited
just a pretty face: The new Tatula SV103 Limited is immediately recognizable
with a bright silver finish that really stands apart from the rest of the Tatula
The Tatula Limited looks more Zillion with this finish
other Tatula reels the main frame of this reel is made of aluminum but the
limited edition also gets a more rigid aluminum sideplate as well.
High-end components like a 90mm carbon swept handle and
Zaion knobs add a lot of personality to this reel
most noticeable difference in the 90mm carbon swept handle that looks and feels
very high-end, and is similar to the implementation we have seen on previous
limited edition reels. This handle has the spider logo screened on it and is
loaded with a pair of lightweight ported Zaion knobs.
You have to like Daiwa to buy this one. The logo on the
non-handle sideplate is massive
actual drag internals are the same in this reel the drag star has been upgraded
with a anodized aluminum build. At the core the reel has all the features that
make the series so popular including the SV braking system, Zero Adjuster and SV
spool for precision casting control, and the T-Wing System.
This is one reel that should be in ever Tatula, or Limited
Edition Daiwa collector's arsenal
reels will retail for $299 each and Daiwa is manufacturing only 2500 units
total. These units are already sold to dealers and should be a hot commodity so
it may be worth pre-ordering if you like the Tatula Series, or just a fan of
limited edition reels. This one should be a keeper.
