The Daiwa Tatula Series Shallow Crank/Jerkbait/Light Topwater Rods are a technique-specific sub-series of Daiwa's brilliant, re-vamped Tatula Series of spinning and casting rods.

The Tatula Series really runs the gamut, with everything from medium-light spinning rods for finesse fishing, all the way up to heavy flippin' and froggin' rods. But, just as the name of this sub-series implies, these 1 piece, 7 foot, Regular action rods are best suited for jerkbaits, shallow crankbaits, and light topwater lures, all thanks to their exceptional balance of sensitivity and power.

Crafted from X45 SVF graphite blanks with BRAIDING-X carbon fiber braiding technology, these rods are extremely light for their power ratings. This specialized carbon fiber braiding process also reduces blank twists and provides crisper, more uniform tapers. Additionally, the reduced blank weight also increases hoop strength load by helping the blank resist ovalization.

The quality of these rods doesn't stop with the blanks either. Like all rods in the Tatula Series, the Tatula Series Shallow Crank/Jerkbait/Light Topwater Rods come with Fuji's new, proprietary FazLite K-guides. Fuji FazLite guides are an all-new formulation designed to be braid-proof, rod-locker-tough, and offer silky-smooth, tangle-free performance on your fishing rod. Just shy of Alconite's stellar specifications, FazLite rings are extremely affordable, yet they easily surpass the performance demands set by Fuji's flagship K-Series guides and allow you to make extremely long, accurate casts time after time.

These are some damn good-looking rods too. All rods in the Tatula Series come with a slick black and graphite finish with Portuguese natural cork handles emblazoned with a laser-etched Tatula Spider icon. The beautifully crafted natural cork handles not only look great, but ensure easy, precise, and comfortable rod handling season after season.

Overall, the Tatula Series really bridges the gap between affordability and quality and is great for filling holes in your gear line up without forcing you to dip into the kids' college fund, or worse: sacrifice rod quality.

Available in a Medium (TTU701MRB) or Medium-Light (TTU701MLRB) power rod. Limited 5-year manufacturer warranty.*

I own the 7’ Medium Regular Tatula and it is my primary squarebill rod. Currently paired with a Curado DC but may get a Tat TWS for it eventually. It handles finesse squarebills like the 6th Sense Curve 55 really well, and with a SK 1.5 Hard knock delta red I landed bass with ease. Skin hooked, foul hooked, or choked, this rod has not lost a fish with its regular action yet, it has kept them pinned really well. Oh, and did you notice they were a sub $200 rod?!?! At $150 it is really hard to beat this rod. I have a 6-8 spinning Tatula that I’ll also review (check that one out too). Great price, stellar rod!
