Just when you thought the in-demand Tatula reel family couldn’t get any better, Daiwa unleashes the new Tatula 300 Casting Reels, a true 300-size reel for throwing big bass baits. Daiwa’s progressive product development team redesigned the new Tatula to bring anglers a slightly larger option perfect for a variety of applications including outsized, deep-diving crankbaits, swimbaits, A rigs, and more.
In short, it’s the perfect option for anglers fishing large presentations for even larger fish. What really makes The Daiwa Tatula 300 so special is the inclusion of the T-Wing System level-wind. When you take the reel out of gear it allows for less resistance on the line, allowing the line to cast further.
Daiwa’s spool lets anglers finely tune the spool tension while the T-Wing System level-wind opens up line feed, working together to cast longer, more accurately, and provide stress-free control when chunking into the wind, skipping baits or casting large lures.
The T-Wing System is also very efficient at reducing backlashes on the 300-size reel with large spool. It does this by reducing the angle of the line coming off the spool and spool speed, providing efficient operation unlike anything on the market in this reel class.
The new Tatula 300 also features Daiwa’s patented Magforce magnetic casting system which is located on the exterior of the reel making adjustments easy to make depending on wind conditions, the rods you’re fishing, and overall aerodynamics of the baits you’re throwing. Internally, the reel has much bigger gears for handing big baits and fish, necessitated by the aluminum frame which allows space for the larger gears in precise alignment, and subsequently, much more power and torque.
Lightweight and incredibly strong, aluminium allows strength and weightlessness to be achieved without the cost and corrosion issues of other metals.
Lasting 12 times longer than standard stainless steel bearings Daiwa’s CRBBs feature specially treated stainless steel, and a protective shield on the bearing race that seals out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives. The result is a longer lasting bearing that’s protected from the corrosive elements that destroy traditional bearings.
A system that combines ultra smooth low inertia with ultimate fish stopping power. UTD combines advanced carbon washers, alloy and stainless steel drag plates with specially designed grease for ultra-smooth performance.

I bought a XS model on sale for like 300$ when they were 360$, they have came down quite a bit in price. This reel isn't really salt water safe, so salt water fishing is not recommended with it, the Lexa model is salt water safe i think, if that's what your looking for is a salt water safe reel.
Ultimately I gave the reel to a family member that had their rod and reel stolen, don't know how much use it is getting but for fresh water this thing was a beast. The 42 inch draw was pretty sweet.
I bought this reel for big lure salt water fishing. I cast a 1oz spoon with 40lb surfix pe line. The cast distance is over 60 meters which is sufficient for my target fishes.
