  • It’s not often Daiwa releases a new electric dendoh reel and there’s arguably no name more famous in the category than Daiwa's Tanacom. A total overhaul from the ground up, the Daiwa 23 Tanacom 800 Electric Reel is a project half-a-decade in the making between Daiwa Japan engineers and teams within Australia and America.

    Sporting a totally new design incorporating the motor housed inside the spool has given Daiwa engineers the ability to increase the efficiency of the powerful motor, the same reliable unit that’s been used on Tanacom 1000 in the past. Installed in this new frame, the motor generates even more power thanks to an improved drivetrain which has been totally reengineered with beefier gears and internal components to improve durability and minimise power loss. More power is also accompanied by more speed, a feat often difficult to achieve since a faster retrieve inevitably means lower torque, the same principal as to why bikes are easier to ride up a hill in low gear as opposed to high. The faster retrieve speed of the Daiwa 23 Tanacom 800A is a great feature when deep dropping, as your ability to reposition or check baits is sped up dramatically. A side benefit of the new design is a very impressive line capacity for an electric of this size, with the Daiwa 23 Tanacom 800 boasting a line capacity of 800 metres of PE6. 

    Setting up the Daiwa 23 Tanacom 800 is also now easier than ever, with a redesigned menu system which has been simplified and carefully designed to offer easy user experience for first time users and familiarity for long-time Daiwa dendoh fans. The Dot Monitor LCD screen has also been improved, with a brighter display and better viewing angles when wearing polarised sunglasses.All areas of the reel design have been addressed with the development of Daiwa's 23 Tanacom 800. From small quality of life improvements like the aluminium ball knob, to hugely functionality changes like the increased speed & power. Daiwa Tanacom's have continually set the benchmark for quality and value for money in the electric reel space and the new Daiwa 23 Tanacom 800 is set to elevate the bar once again. Dominate the deep with the Daiwa 23 Tanacom 800 Electric Reel.


    • DOT LCD Display -  Dot LCD display to enable clear view from a large range of agles and light conditions.
    • Aluminium Body -  Lightweight and incredibly strong, aluminium allows strength and weightlessness to be achieved without the cost and corrosion issues of other metals.
    • Line Counter -  There’s no need to guess how much line you’ve got out anymore with Daiwa’s Line Counter letting your know exactly. Dropping your back down to the right depth has never been easier.
    • Power Lever -  This lever allows you to go from stop to start to full power with the flick of switch. It’s like stepping on the gas pedal to accelerate.
    • Metal Ball Knob -  Providing maximum contact between handle knob and hand, ball knobs are designed for optimal rotation balance, rotation, and functionality.

    How Does The 800 Compare With The 1200?

    The Tanacom 800 is very similar to the Tanacom 1200 in all aspects, varying only in size, weight and line capacity. It's a slightly smaller sized reel (see the size comparison photo above) and thus slightly lighter, weighing in at 1910g which is 130g lighter than the 1200. In terms of line capacity the 800 takes up to 700m of quality 80lb braid, which is plenty of line for a lot of deep drop fishing locations around Australia.
