Daiwa’s Tatula CS Q rod series was designed for the Asian market and is an upgraded take on the top-rated Tatula series. Featuring an improved carbon fiber blank and weave pattern, improved guide rings, and Daiwa’s custom carbon fiber Air Sensor reel seat, the Tatula CS Q Rod Series offers increased sensitivity and strength in a lighter weight offering than the standard Tatula rod series.
- SVF Carbon Fiber Blank – Daiwa’s Exclusive SVF (Super High Volume Fiber) carbon fiber blanks feature precise resin control and unidirectional carbon fiber to produce maximum carbon density. SVF blanks are extremely sensitive, lightweight, and powerful.
- X45 – This manufacturing process involves layering spiral carbon fibers (90°), unidirectional fibers (0°) over three layers, and two layers of carbon as helicoidal opposites (45°). These two crossed layers give the name Bias Cross Wrap. The wrapping of X45 guarantees proper elasticity: a return to the blank’s original shape irrespective of the load’s angle.
- Fuji K-series guides with Fuji Alconite guide rings -Daiwa improved the guide ring offering in the Tatula CS Q series by adding Fuji Alconite guide rings. Compared to the Fazlite guide rings offered in the standard Tatula rod series, Alconite rings are lighter, tougher, and provide increased sensitivity.
- Daiwa Air Sensor Reel Seat – Daiwa’s exclusive “Air Sensor” reel seats are made of carbon fiber and were previously only found on Daiwa’s highest-end offerings. They are lighter and stronger and maximize the rod’s sensitivity compared to standard reel seats. These pure carbon reel seats cannot be machined like traditional models. They are designed with specific tools, taking the most excellent care in design and form.
- V-Joint (642LFB Only) – These 2-piece rod blanks join together using Daiwa’s V-Joint technology. The V-Joint is made from Bias carbon wrapped at 45°, improving the curve and action of the rod under compression on the cast and during the fight. The V-Joint’s Bias carbon has a perfect shape memory, allowing it to return to its original position as soon as the force exerted on the blank is lifted.
