Shimano CU200IHG Curado I Baitcasting Reel
|SA-RB Ball Bearings||Roller Bearings||Gear Ratio||Weight||Price|
The Shimano Curado I Baitcasting Reels are best used for both saltwater and freshwater, and are offered in multiple gear ratios. These baitcasting reels are built with the latest in Shimano fishing reel technology.
- X-Ship: X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear is eliminated, enhancing the casting performance with lighter lures, and allowing for longer casts.
- SVS Infinity: Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology. SVS infinity provides easy to manage, consistent spool control and brake force on the new Curado I series baitcasting reels. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, this controls spool speed especially when using lighter lures, plus external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits. This combined with X-Ship technology gives anglers precision cast control
- Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D):Leads to signifigantly reduced spool vibration. By designing a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminum constructed spool, this creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.

The Curado is smooth and fast. I've shied away from baitcasters in saltwater because of the wind. Not a problem with this reel. Have not had a backlash yet. Can cast much further than my other reels.

I have had several generations of the Curado, from the BFS super free when they first came out well over a decade ago, and through several disappointments in the Curado, finally, a reel that can truly bare the Curado name without it being just a facelift. The technology in the new entire Shimano Line is something I have come to love. This reel has incredibly smooth casting, a smooth retrieve, comes in 3 handy speeds that caters to your type of fishing situation and scenario, and is just a great reel for the price. I have several Anatares, Calais, JDM reels, and so on….and I still find myself reaching for this reel. And with Tackle Direct, I can always rest assured that the reel is fresh, hasn't been tampered with by going through the bidding site even with buy it option, etc….Tackle Direct just rules.
ProsX-Ship is a bit technical, but pretty nice to have in this reel. Even in the Stella SW-B ('13 SW), it is a nice option. The reel is just buttery smooth and is light, casts well, and is just fun to fish with. Can handle any freshwater bass or fish you can throw at it and is also an excellent inshore rod when fishing for specs, flatties, reds, etc.
ConsNone. Great reel for great price.

I've just started to fish with my new Curado I. I usually go for snook, barracudas, jacks. The casting is really good, smoother and longer than my old Curado E (also a superb generation of the Curado). I've used 4 times until now and I'm totally satisfied with this equipment. I would recommend it to anyone who loves bait casting.

Casts great. No break adjustment needed for me. They even gave some free worms and a jerk bait with the purchase.
ProsEast casting. Easy maintenance.

Nice reel for a fair price. Most solid reel as it gets for the inshore and freshwater style of fishing.

This reel flat out performs. Shimano for life. Have tried Abu, Lews, Quantum, and non of them compare to Shimano. This is a great improvement over the E-series Curados. My dad has a couple of them and a G-series (which they skimped on) and this blows it out of the water. More compact, lighter, and smoother than ever since they added x-ship. Two thumps up

Do these come in left handed ?
Sam, In the Curado Line any reel with a 201 product code indicates it is a left hand reel.
