Shielded For Extra Protection. Unlike ordinary ‘corrosion resistant’ bearings with an unprotected open race, Daiwa’s CRBB bearings are shielded to seal out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives for even longer life.

Digital gear design ensures a perfect mesh between ultra-tough, surface treated alloy drive gear and marine bronze pinion gear for optimized speed, power and durability.

The DAIWA Ultimate Tournament Drag System includes impregnated drag discs, which are about 30 times more durable than normal discs. The effective drag power is considerably increased compared to normal drag systems. An additional advantage is the reduced start-up resistance – the drag starts working, when the adjusted drag power is reached and drags smoothly and steadily.

Intensive studies of saltwater influence have resulted in the development of a washable construction for saltwater use. A water ‘duct’ at the bottom of reel allows effective water discharge and simplifies maintenance by allowing the reel to be washed after use, without concern for drainage.

Other comparable electric reels is Daiwa Seaborg 1200MJ or Shimano Beastmaster 9000.

Daiwa Tanacom 1000 Electric Reel FAQs:

Does it come with cords and batteries?

The Daiwa Tanacom 1000 comes with the power cord but batteries not included.

How long are the power cords on the Tanacom 1000 reels?

The power cord on the Daiwa Tanacom 1000 is 8.86 ft.

What is the difference between the tanacom 1000 and the 750?

The Tanacom 1000 and Tanacom 750 are extremely similar reels, but the biggest differences will be size and line capacity. Best to treat the 750 as a narrow spool version of the 1000. For 80lb braid, the 1000 will be able to hold roughly an additional 300 yards, which would make it ideal for hitting your really deep bottom fishing numbers for tilefish, queen snapper, and other deep dwellers. The 750 size is ideal if you are wanting to get into deep dropping with an electric reel while still holding the setup in hand rather than fishing it directly out of a rod holder since it is about 10oz lighter than the 1000. Max drag, gear ratio, the English reading LCD display, and an oversized line guide are found on both models, making each model quite versatile for both deep dropping and kite fishing.

Does the Tanacom 1000 have jiging function?

Yes it does. You can check it out on pages 23-25 of the online owners manual.

Excellent electric reel for Kite fishing and deep dropping

5.0 rating

I use this reel for Kite fishing off of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. It is a big powerful reel, strong enough to hold my kites in place with three live baits on a line. Great for catching Bill-fish, Kings and Wahoo. I can control my kite distance with a flip of a switch, depending upon my needs, and I can bring in the lines, re-rig and set them back out in a quarter of the time it would take with manual gear. These reels are also great for deep dropping in 600′- 1000′ of water when fishing for queen snapper or golden tile fish. It takes the back breaking effort out of retrieving 1000′ of line and a 2 to 4 pound weight from the bottom of the ocean. I plan on using it for night time sword fishing as well. This will make checking the lines infinitely easier! Need proof? Check out my avatar. That’s me doing it not just posing with a fish.
It requires a separate battery to operate, and can be cranked manually as well. Easy to use and the instruction manual is available on the Daiwa website for download.

Daiwa gets it.

I have been using Tanacom over a decade for kite fishing and deep dropping on my Florida Keys charter boat. So I was interested in a cheaper priced version and let me tell you, Im not disappointed. Daiwa continues to make durable fishing gear for professionals and weekend warriors alike. The reel is compact, yet powerful and can run on your boats battery or a battery pack daiwa sells separately. It also holds 800yds of 80 braid, so deep drops over 1000′ are possible. Do yourself a favor and buy one!

Great bang for the buck

Once, I finally got the correct reel (the first reel sent was a 750 not the 1000) I was happy with the initial un-boxing. I have now had a chance to use it a few time and I have to say that this was a good purchase. We fished to 1500 ft and it did not have one hiccup. I spooled 80# super braid on it and pulled fish up well. It does lack a little power. But at the price point I can not complain to much. Was able to boat some good size Alaskan halibut as well as rock fish and cod. It takes a bit to learn how to work all of the functions of the reel. I would recommend making up a laminated cheat sheet until you know how to work your reel. Over all I am pleased with the performance of this reel. We had two of these reels and we boated 7 halibut between 100# and 225# in a four day fishing trip. Update: still happy but have found that you have to check the drag often. Either it increases drag when using the manual handle once you intervenetly hit the drag knob when working the reel. Have lost a few fish to an this.

Tamacom 1000

4.0 rating

I have had this electric Daiwa tamacon 1000 for one year. I fish in Jamaican waters at depth of 600 to 2500 feet. I can say that the unit is very good, easy to use and have had a lot of good times catching several types of deep water fish. I have not had any other type of deep water fishing reel due to the fact that they can be very expensive, but for us$ 500.00 you can trust this reel, of course you have to be cautious and maintain it by always protecting it by always keeping it clean. You have to have a fully charged battery otherwise it will not be be to retrieve your line when it hits over 1000 feet or more, it needs full battery power 12 volts. I recommend this reel, as i am a fisherman by profession and use it 2 to 3 times every week, so before jumping to buy one of those very expensive deep water electric reel, buy this one.

Fantastic reel!

5.0 rating

These work great for deep dropping. Checking bait is much easier especially in 800-1000+ depths. Have caught many tilefish, rosefish, hake, barrelfish and various others with no complaints. It’s great being able to hook up a small motorcycle battery in a small bag when you need to move around. My only complaint is a lot of people on party boats do NOT understand you can quickly disconnect and get out of the way for tangles or another fisherman bringing a fish in. Well worth the money though for sure!

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.

Great Reel

5.0 rating

Me and a work mate used our Daiwa’s 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.

Amazing light duty deep drop reel. i have been using the same pair for a year and a half and they have not missed a beat. i would like to know how many thousands of pounds of filets these bad boys have produced for us. this is the right reel for you if fishing 300 to 1100′, work horses!

Great reel!!

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!

Good price for an electric reel

5.0 rating

Nice looking reel. Larger than I expected. Should be perfect for deep dropping bait my arm can’t take reeling in 1000 ft. Of line with 5 pds of weight on the end. It’s heck to get old.

Love it

5.0 rating

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 had 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.

Great entry level electric reel

5.0 rating

Great entry level electric reel, Plenty of line capacity and drag. Excellent reel for kite fishing and lite deep drop.

great reel for the price.

5.0 rating

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.

Great reel needs more line capacity

4.0 rating

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 and we haven’t had either reel long enough to report on long term reliability.

Kite fishing

5.0 rating

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 offshore Reel

5.0 rating

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.

Great reel for the money

5.0 rating

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.

Perfect for deep drops!

5.0 rating

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! Easy to operate Manual back up if the battery runs out of juice Smooth operation and adjustable speeds Just the right size

Great reel

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.

Excellent Reel

5.0 rating

Works well for kite or deep drop applications.

Easy to set up

5.0 rating

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!
