Behold the new standard in spinning reels, DAIWA’s brilliantly-designed Tatula MQ LT. Designed to allow anglers to control fish under any conditions and a smooth and effortless retrieve. Equipped with a new AIRDRIVE ROTOR & BAIL to provide rotation with low inertia and extra strength, the reel is equipped with the latest advanced technology and specifications.
For anglers seeking their next premium, precision spinning reel, look no further than the TATULA MQ LT, a reel engineered with advanced technology and constructed of the finest and most durable materials available at a realistic, real-world price.
Monocoque MQ Body: Provides a one piece, rigid body that ensures perfect alignment of all gearing componentry, reduces unnecessary entry points to offer better sealing, and allows for an oversized Main Gear (up to ~30% larger than competitor sized Main Gears).
Zaion-V Body: The new super composite material developed by Daiwa to further improve the performance of LT Reels: Lighter in weight by at least 20%, supreme corrosion resistance and excellent durability.
Airdrive Rotor: The Tatula MQ LT also boasts an AIRDRIVE ROTOR engineered to be incredibly rigid and with minimal flex, especially at high drag pressures. Critically designed cut-outs reduce the weight of the rotor, itself. The lighter the rotor, the less force it takes to spin around the reel, making it easier to turn the handle. As mentioned, the screw-less rotor is super light in weight (15% lighter than the Tatula LT rotor) and with a drag inertia point that’s been reduced by 15%.
- Airdrive Bail: The Tatula MQ LT features a solid AIRDRIVE BAIL, which further reduces weight and offers more rigidity than standard wire, minimizing concerns over flex, bending, or breaking. The thicker material feels better to the fingers when flipping the bail as well. Other benefits include excellent line entanglement prevention performance and a 31% weight reduction from the standard Tatula LT’s wire bail.
Airdrive Shaft: An entirely new design for oscillation support & smoothness. This non-contact structure between the main shaft and the pinion gear with a supported bearing transmits the cranking power from the handle to the rotor with a higher level of efficiency. By adding high quality collars to the main shaft, rotational noise has been reduced significantly. Overall, this allows for a smooth, quiet rotation and provides anglers with enhanced torque and power.

These reels can work great with braid as well as monofilament lines from all top manufacturers. We personally recommend using braid as the mainline on top of some mono backing to use to stick to the spool and to fill the base layer of the spool with mono so you can save money on the braid.
Our 2 favorite lines for the Tatula MQ is Daiwa J-Braid x8 Grand and PowerPro. in the 5 lb to 30 lb range depending on what species you're targeting.
