Easy to set up
December 17, 2019
I got this about 2 weeks ago and I was very scared that it would be hard to set up. It took me no time at all to set up and get in place. If you are looking for a great kite reel, look no farther!
ProsEasy set up Line capacity

Great reel
September 17, 2019
This reel is great for what I use it for. I have only 1 arm and I use it for my long rod. I am looking for another and would recommend this reel

Perfect for deep drops!

The line capacity is more than enough to fish in deep locations. Ease of operation and very accurate for returning to the fish. Great reel, I'll buy another one!
ProsEasy to operate Manual back up if the battery runs out of juice Smooth operation and adjustable speeds Just the right size

Great reel for the money
June 25, 2019
Used this reel to catch Golden Tiles. The reel handled 2 at a time (15-20lb's) with no struggle at all. Im not sure you can find a better electric reel for the price. Our crew plans on buying more of them. Paired it with the Diawa TNB66HF-DD and 65lb Diawa J-Braid. This combo worked great.
ConsPlastic gear lever seems like it may eventually be the weak point of this reel.

Great offshore Reel
January 29, 2019
If you are in the market for an offshore fishing reel, the Daiwa Tanacom 1000 is your reel. Great for offshore sea-bass, porgies, ling, cod, and even tile fish.
ProsEasy to use.
ConsThe reel is a little bulky for my comfort.

So far I have been using it for the kite. Retrieving and deploying the kite is really easy and fast. Will be using it for deep drop soon.

Great reel needs more line capacity
December 19, 2018
I have two of these great value reels which we use for deep dropping and running a dredge. With a little more drag and line capacity this would be outstanding as it is great value compared to the remainder of the electric reel market. Great product - oh but the manual sucks nd we haven’t had either reel long enough to report on long term reliability
ProsGreat product
ConsThe manual sucks More line capacity

I bought the Tanacom 1000 for the line capacity. My Megatwin 750 didn't have the line capacity (65# power pro) for daytime swordfishing in Virginia.

I bought 2 reels spooled them up with 80lb daiwa j line and used them once so far and they worked perfectly! I I didn't bother learning the function yet but it's easy to use. I used a 3lb lead and dropped between 80-150 fathoms that's 480-900 feet deep and caught 2 8-10 pound fish on one of the drops and the reels worked perfectly. My friend hads this reel for over 8 years and most use was on a jet ski and never had any issues and never had to service it. yet.
ProsLight Good Price Easy to use

Nice looking reel. Larger than I expected. Should be perfect for deep dropping bait my arm canâ‚"t take reeling in 1000 ft. Of line with 5 pds of weight on the end. Itâ‚"s heck to get old

I have two of them that I mostly use for deep dropping snapper, grouper and tilefish. Works great for the kite too. I love the line counter and auto jig features! Well worth the money!

If you kite fish, this is the reel you want

Me and a work mate used our Daiwas while deep dropping for Tasmanian Trumpeters, The way it pulls heavy sinkers up has to be see to be believed, Before we bought these beauties we were almost spent after a few hours, Now re-baiting is easy as, and the great thing is that you can fight a fish like a regular overhead game reel except you don't have to bust your hump winching up braid to re bait as the reel does these boring parts of the fishing trip for you, Precious energy is better used on fighting fish from the depths rather than pulling empty lines.
ProsNot that expensive for what it is and the quality of build is A1

I picked this reel up for the multiple day tile trips I do and I couldn't be happier with it. It does everything i need at a fraction of the cost of the older model.

Very happy with this reels performance. I paired it on a 60# class stand up and spooled it with 80# hollow and a 50 yard top shot of 100# mono to do some Amber-jack fishing. The reel handled fish in the 35# class and boated a 50+ with little fuss because of the smooth drag, rest of the trip was spent in 30 fathoms pulling on average to nice grouper and snapper things a beast. love the line counter and the auto stop feature keeps you from crashing your rod tip.
Prospower features super light smooth drag
Conspower cord is a little short
