Daiwa Reel Unexpected Benefit
« on: August 06, 2017, 04:47:50 PM »

Although many have said that I will have better cast control, I did not know really what they were referencing.  All of us know they cast a long distance but then again so do my Lews BB-1  But the Daiwa was a bit better.

The true benefit was learned and tested repeatedly today.  Went to the front yard casting range and decided to do some flipping and pitching.  I was always better at pitching but not as good with flipping.  Well I gotta tell you that has all changed.  Flipping and pitching with these reels is absolutely wonderful.  I cannot get over how accurate I was and how easy it was to make these casts.  I try to flip a lot of cypress trees and up until now I did it poorly.  You can bet the next time on the river me and the cypress trees are gonna have a good conversation.

A quality reel is vital for pitching. But I don't use the reel at all for what I call flipping?

What is the difference between your flipping and pitching?

I don't really use the reel either for a flip.  Just a matter of pulling out the line from the reel give me the slack and then guiding the line back to the rod during the "flip" process.  The pitch if more of a casting style with the bait held on my hand and letting the pendulum motion of the bait be the catalyst for propelling the bait to the target.  I think this is all fairly routine.  The overall smoothness of the reel just makes this process easier.  For me keeping the spool tension light seems to help a lot for those nice smooth and quiet entries into the water.

My biggest problem here on the river is keeping the boat in position long enough to execute the flip or pitch.

It can be tough. I point the boat into the current and then flip/pitch past the target and let the current bounce it into the strike zone. If you are close range flipping a drag system to slow you down as you travel with the current can be a good idea so that you don't spoke fish with the trolling motor.

I have learned that putting the trolling motor on constant and adjusting the speed so that the boat moves into the current at a slow fishable pace doesn't spook fish. Its the on/off and thrust wash that spooks them.

That is a huge benefit of these Tatula reels. Bud ever since I got these I have been doing a lot more pitching than I used to.
I don't do any flipping though. I never fish close enough to my target to hold the line with one hand and bring it up and down with that extra hand.

One of the few reels out there that you can flip or pitch, and then go and cast it a mile without having to adjust anything on it. Got to love Daiwas SV technology.

All you guys have convinced me. Next month's "foolishness" money will be expended on getting a tatula. I go tomorrow to pick up my second suicide duck so I am getting extravagant in my old age..  ~roflmao
