I’m late to the party…but I finally bought a Tatula TW 400.
The reason why I bought the Tatula 400 is because many anglers I consider good (such as Mr. Noriyuki kanmiya on YouTube) use the Tatula 400 instead of the Tatula 300 for big game fishing and rock fishing.
(I had already purchased a Tatula 300 (XHL) and had finished breaking it in.)
For casting large plugs and other heavy lures, the Tatula 400 spool is more suitable than the Tatula 300 spool. We also thought that line capacity of 200m or more of No. 4-5 PE line was necessary to handle large fish and to protect expensive large lures from line breakage.
The Tatula TW 400 is not as big as people say it is!
It is a wide spool with about the same ratio (about the same size) as the above Zillion TW HD (HLC spool).
I will think about how to use the Tatula 300XHL (PE #3) later, but for now I am going to practice casting big baits, big plugs and heavy weight lures with the Tatula 400XHL (PE #4).
I’m sorry for being so indecisive! But this way of thinking is necessary…to find the best way to do things.

Next, the bearings were replaced with ceramic ball bearings and lubricated with MTCW oil.

Of course…it is a high performance line that can be used as it is, but the coating further improves its compatibility with bait reels.
Since the reel was brand new, my first impression was that the movement of each part was stiff and heavy, but after a few days of repeated trial casting, it became softer and smoother, and the distance increased accordingly.
Currently, 80g metal jigs are up to about 90m before, but we are practicing to go beyond 100m.
