Pleased with purchase
Very nice reel- super smooth retrieve and good casting distance. Baitcast rookie here, and it is definitely possible to backlash this reel, but the learning process is going well. Mounted it on a Kistler rod and it's a fantastic outfit that fishes great.

Daiwa Tatula CT Review | Salted Angler
In Conclusion. We find that the Daiwa Tatula CT is a nice update to the Daiwa Tatula 100 mainly due to the smaller frame, however this is a personal preference as the reviewer has smaller hands. Other than that this appears to be a new spin on an already excellent reel

Looking for honest reviews before buying this combo.
Honestly Lew's aren't bad but I'd go with a daiwa tatula for around that price. Trust me when I say you'll thank me later.

Looking to buy my first bait caster.. Suggestions for a beginner?
The best reels for beginners are the Daiwa Fuego or Tatula CT and Shimano SLX XT. These reels greatly outperform lower-priced options for 20-35 more in cost. They have better brakes leading to fewer problems with backlashing as a beginner.

What rod should I pair with this(budget 60-80)?
I would downgrade the reel and allocate more money to the rod. The reel should be an SLX XT or Daiwa Tatula CT (both around $130) and the rod budget be upped by whatever amount you saved.

Reel for baitcasting
Daiwa Tatula or Daiwa Fuego. I have both and they outperform my Shimano reel that cost more. You can find a Tatula CT from $100-$140 if you shop around on Amazon or eBay.
Looking for honest reviews before buying this combo.
I 100% agree with the Daiwa Tatula. I own a Curado DC and I bought my son a Tatula for 1/2 the price and in my opinion it’s a better casting reel.
Baitcaster
Daiwa Fuego CT. Better brakes and better bearings than the SLX. Honestly if you want an SLX you will want to spend the extra $20-$30 for the SLX XT. The extra cost for the extra bearings and better brakes of the XT model honestly makes the standard SLX obsolete unless you literally can not possibly spend the extra $25 or so.

Best bait casting setups (combo or seperate) under 150$
Daiwa Fuego CT and Daiwa Aird X… I have 3 of these combos in different gear ratios and rod stiffnesses. Fantastic value for money.
