I'm fighting the urge to acquire yet another rod. Have my eye on a Daiwa Tatula spinning rod.

Does anyone have experience with these they can share?

I have the 7’ medium daiwa Tatula spinning rod it’s a awesome rod. The only thing I don’t like is the handel I like a little more under the reel. I have somewhat bigger hands. Other than that you can’t beat it.

They are pretty great. I have 7 mf and 76 mmlf. Both are awesome. I actually love the handle, one of the most comfortable spinning rod reel seats in my opinion.
I am willing to sell 76 mmlf but it is probably too long for your usual fishing. You can swing 1/8 oz jig with a paddle tail really far with it, but not the best for short distance ned rig work.

I bought the Tatula. Took it to Belleau yesterday to check it out. Paired it with my Daiwa Regal with 10 lb Floroclear.

All I can say is wow - this is a great rod. Really light, great action. One of the reviews I read the writer said he'd weighed a Tatula & it was lighter than similar Ducketts & Dobyns. I believe it.

And I find the handle very comfortable.

Didn't catch any fish yesterday but that will come.

7' Medium Extra Fast.

New reel ain't likely.

Took it to the west branch of the Dupe yesterday. Caught a smallie & a 'gill on a buzzbait.

Probably the 1st 'gill I ever caught on a buzzbait. It's eyes were definitely bigger than it's stomach.
