Which Daiwa??
« on: August 05, 2019, 10:34:22 AM »

Hey there, I have a question which I know will be subjective in nature but really could use some guidance. I have a little money to spend and was looking to get a new reel. Iím lucky if I get out to fish once a month if that. I donít own a boat but maybe a kayak in the distant future.

Anyway, I have a Tatula CT Type R and am thinking of 1 of 3 additions. A Tatula CT. AFUEGO CT, or a TATULA SV. I use all kinds of soft plastics, crankbaits, frogs. The fact that Iím only out once a month and shore bound, would I be wasting my money going the SV route?
I told this was going to be subjective. I donít want to waste any of the limited resources that I have.

Thoughts??

Since you have the type -R I would go with the Tat svtw.

Here is why.

You have a reel for long casts now.

The svtw is going to give you control on windy days and lighter baits.

Plus it is just that much better. IMO

Watch for a sale and it can be had for $130 or even less.

Ok, bare with me as Iím new to this topic. Iím gathering from reading a couple different threads on here that the purpose of going with a sv type reel is to be able to throw lighter baits. Correct? If so couldnít I save some money and buy a Fuego CT or Tatula CT and put in a DIY spool? Is that even a viable option or am I spending more in the long run??
Thanks

I don't know if this will help or not but I just bought a Fuego CT and asked this exact same question. I was told you can't put a SV spool in the Fuego CT due to the difference in the diameter of the two spools.

If it were me, I would buy the SV like Zippy and Joe said, but that's just my $.02.

Good luck and please keep us posted on what you decided.  :)

Daiwas SV spool, and a DIY spool are 2 different animals. Yes, both will cast lighter baits, and the DIY due to its shallow design. But, the SV spool is more "controlled". Get the SV
