This has become my favorite reel for bigger swim baits. Casts like a machine with a nasty drag.

Bottom Line

Overall, the Tatula 300 is immensely popular member of the Tatula series. This is a heavier reel option, which is extremely powerful and can handle fish of serious size - but with this comes precision, smoothness and versatility.

One key thing to note is that this is a reel suited for fishing bigger profile baits. The reel weighs 11.5 ounces, which may be just too heavy for anglers looking to throw regular size baits.

If you're looking for a 300 sized reel - this is definitely one of the top contenders. If you don't necessarily need a 300 size spool, check out the Tatula 100.
