Just ordered the Tatula 76xh

We’ll see how it goes with a Luna 300 onboard

15-24kg for 8-12” baits

The tatula seems to be the only swimbait rod that Daiwa Aus have on their site?

They did have a sol version, but it has disappeared from the site

Yeah, Ok. I think the Tatula is the right choice between the 2 anyway, simply for the SVF blank. And it looks more pretty.

Just got my hands on the 76H rod

Pretty decent

Happy with my choice. The telescope butt design is kinda cool, seems pretty robust and locks off very tightly

I'd be interested to hear how it casts, man. Never handled a swimbait rod before so I'm wondering how they handle such heavy baits in comparison to popping/stickbait rods which are rated to lower cast weights.

Is there anywhere that gives an actual weight for the daiwa rods rather than a length of the bait?

Managed to get in to my local compleat angler during lunch to pick up my new tatula swim bait rod

Bolted a Luna 300 to it and man, does it feel sweet. Balances really well with such a chunk of a reel sitting on it, but thatís because the rod itself is a deadset broom stick.

Capable of flinging out swim baits up to and including 300g, itís not wonder it balances well with the Luna.

Collapsible butt is also handy to bring it down a bit from 7í6Ē

Components seem very decent for a $250 rod, but then again, i donít think itís a domestic production model

All in all, very happy. Looking forward to sending some baits out and wishing cod ate house bricks, coz Iím sure I could cast them with this beast and theyíre a lot cheaper

That's interesting, because my PE#6 demon blood definitely won't handle 300g, even if I'm gentle... I just wonder what the difference between these rods construction is that makes one capable of such a cast weight and one not?

Not a clue mate

Iíll tell you one thing, the day I cast a 300g bait will be the most careful cast Iíve ever done

The new daiwa swimbaits are pretty damn big though, probably high 200 grams by the look of them, so they must be able to be managed
