Daiwa’s Tanacom Bull 1000 really created a new style of electronic assist fishing reel. It’s proven success in a wide range of applications including kite work, dredge retrieve, jigging for tuna and swordfish as well as all other bottom oriented fish species, proved the validity of Daiwa’s design. In the old days there were a limited number of add-on power winders on the market for commercial application that fit a specific reel. These were bulky and expensive. Daiwa designed the Dendoh power-assisted reels from the ground up to provide deep water anglers an alternative. The Tanacom Bull (Tunacom) was designed for deep saltwater application, and also for use as a kite reel. It’s large enough to hold the appropriate amount of line for it’s intended application, and robust enough to provide many, many years of exceptional service. It’s also relatively compact for it’s application, much more so than the add-on alternative. The reel can be used by crank (robust levelwind design), by direct power with the supplied 9′ 12 volt DC cable, or with the addition of optional battery packs. It features 4 ball bearings, heavy duty brass and bronze gearing, variable control of winding speed and power and a programmable jigging function. There’s a digital readout measuring line out and distance retrieved from the bottom, a programmable auto stop which stops winding once a lure reaches the surface… The TB1000 is the model with heavy duty marine application in mind. It’s robust, high capacity, and most surprisingly affordable. For 2014 Daiwa updated the design, kept all the important features, and they were able to shave off about 40% of the price. The new 1000’s are available at $600 instead of $1000!! It’s quite likely that this is the tip of the iceberg, and we can anticipate the smaller reels in this series to drop in price, too. For $600, there are few reasons not to own one: bottom fishing, jigging, flying a kite, retrieving chains and dredges. Lots of reasons to own one of these! (PICTURED ABOVE RIGHT, THE NEW TANACOM 750)
The ultimate kite reel quickly winds in the kite and stops by itself while you fight the fish. Plenty of power and capacity for deep drops.
