Here is my 2 cents. 
A faster reel is for jig an t-rig fishing.  Here is why.  You move a jig and t-rig with your rod not the reel. And the faster speed allows for more casts and pitches.
A slow reel is for cranking to keep pressure off the reel and make it easier to wind.

Hey smallie, thanks for the advice. My reasoning for wanting a lower gear ratio is my 8:0:1 is pretty fast and it get annoying and abrasive to have to slow down my (not sure what to call it) handle turning speed, and quite hard for slower techniques and colder weather when fish are a bit lazier. Its be nice and much more convenient to have a 6:3:1 where I can turn the handle at a normal speed and it be easier for slower techniques. Also if I do spend the extra $10 for the Daiwa I've really wanted a Tatula since I got into fishing they just seem super cool. Thanks!

I just wanted to point out that not one person here has ever made an impulse buy.   ;D

You asked did TW mean Daiwa T-wing.  No.  Tackle Warehouse.

Still researching rods?  The Daiwa Aird X and Berkley Lightning are two low cost options that offer a lot of value.  I'd lean towards the Aird X 7' or 7'3" MHF.  TW is closing out the Ark Lancer and Viper.  No experience with them, but others have mentioned they are also good values.  For more $$ their Tharp Honey Badger series are getting excellent reviews.

The Dobyns Fury has already been mentioned.  I like my Fenwick HMGs.  Recently received a Genesis II 7' MHF All Purpose.  Very nice looking rod.  May be more than you want to pay new, but mine was $90 used in excellent shape.

There are so many choices that selecting just one is pretty dang hard.

Hey 1reel, actually I've decided to go with a crankbait rod. It'll pair nicely with my Tatula. I'm mostly considering the Fury 705CB because unfourtunately I couldnt grab a Kaden fast enough. Although I'm not sure I want to spend that much so I've been looking into the Tatula XT graphite cranking rod, the Veritas winch series, and the Lews Fritts crankbait rod. I'll probably end up choosing the Dobyns once I earn some more money but I want to keep looking. Also I looked They dont have cranking rid the the Daiwa Aird's or the Berkeley lightning rod (which I'm a fan of I have one). Thanks!

I've never owned a Lightning Shock.  My understanding is that they have a softer action because they were designed for braid.  Maybe someone else can comment on if this makes them a suitable crankbait rod when another kind of line is used.

My only Dobyns is a 704CB Glass.  I love it.  I know most people think very highly of Dobyns rods.  Wouldn't have this one, but an Online friend gave me a fabulous deal on it and a Gen 1 Diablo Spec R.  Got both for less than the used price of just one.  Both were like new.
