I just now found out that Daiwa soon has a new (bigger & badder) model of 12v electric (power assisted) reel coming out sometime in the near future:
“The Tanacom 1200”
(MSRP $799.00)

Anybody have any experience or insight on this new “tool”?
Or maybe someone has had a chance to hold it in their hands, or better yet….actually try one out?

On top of it looking pretty rad and more like a normal traditional reel, Daiwa says:

“It has a 30 percent faster retrieval rate at a quick 140m/min, and 20 percent more power with 22lbs of max winding power. Maximum drag pressure has improved, too. Saltwater-sealed, it now stands at a trophy-turning 50 pounds.
Kite-fishing fans will also appreciate the over-sized line guide aperture which is big enough to let swivels and large knots pass through, so go ahead and crank that rig right up to your rod tip.
Still, the biggest improvement must be the new motor placement and gearing system. Previous Tanacom reels had the motor on the front which was sufficient.

The Tanacom 1200, however, has the motor and new gearing hidden inside the spool itself – and that positioning really makes a difference in this reel’s outstanding performance.
This new engineering design allows the same dependable motor we’ve had such great success with to generate even more power, speed and efficiency.
Combine that with the rigid frame and side-plates, plus repositioned bearings that see less water exposure, and this reel is ready to rock and roll.”

It will be quite interesting when I eventually get a chance to check one of these new 1200’s out and see how it truly performs, especially compared to the Tanacom 1000, Banax 1500TM, and Seaborg 1200mj I currently own and fish with.

I like mine better than the 1000. For one thing it is a bunch quieter and is faster. The display works better also and is easier to read. The display is supposed to be the same as the Seaborg. There is also a JDM/Aus version that has the Seaborg motor.

At 140m/per minute seems like you can get a pretty good spin out of the rock fish on the retrieve
On the 1200 you can alter the retrieve speed. I set it to slow and go do other things while my electric buddy digs 'em up from the deep.
