The ultimate workhorse for deep dropping and kite fishing, the Daiwa Tanacom 1200 Power Assist Electric Reel checks all the right boxes for anglers looking for a dependable and easy to use electric reel. The Tanacom 1200 builds up on the foundation laid by previous Tanacom generations for increases speed, winding power, line capacity, and maximum drag. Featuring new motor placement and a reengineered gearing system, the Tanacom 1200 is more powerful than any previous model. By moving the motor and gearing from the front of the reel to inside the spool itself, the same size motor now more efficiently transmits power. The reel is built around an extremely rigid frame and sideplates for hauling heavy loads without wavering. The Tanacom 1200 sees a 30% speed increase over previous generations, allowing you to spend more time fishing and less time bringing lines in. As far as ease of operation is concerned, this is easily the most user friendly electric reel to hit the American market. An easy-to-read LED dot screen with selectable languages to prompt you through power assist settings and procedures including automatic stop and jigging features. Kite fisherman will appreciate the oversized line guide aperture which is big enough to let swivels and large knots pass through, allowing the convenience of being able to crank the rig right up to the rod tip. Anglers can choose to fight fish by hand with the power lever and aluminum round knob, or let the 12-volt power variable-speed assist do the heavy hauling. The variable speed lever makes operating the reel so easy it can be done with a single finger. All electronics are fully sealed from saltwater intrusion, giving anglers peace of mind knowing their investment is protected if it happens to take a splash or two. When you’re done for the day, simply wash down the reel without worrying about wetting the electronics because they are fully sealed.

Hello, what are the differences between this model 1200 and the Daiwa Seaborg 1200 besides price point?


Thank you, John C. 

1 Answer
Hi John, There are a bunch of factors that make the Daiwa Seaborg different from the Daiwa Tanacom. The Seaborg has more bearings in it with the added feature of having twin drag and 2 speed function. The Seaborg also boasts a little bit more capacity and a higher max drag. The information on the new Daiwa Tanacom is limited right now but that is the known differences between the two reels. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with!
