Shimano CU201IHG 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.

Picked this reel up right inside their retail store in Egg Harbor, NJ. Very comfortable in hand and ergonomically pleasing. Nothing it better than picking up a new reel, it being lightweight and comfortable to fish with all day!
ProsLow profile, Great price point, and looks great!
ConsThere is a gear sound on retrieve. Seems like they all do it and I am not concerned with Shimano's durability.

how do you specify a right handed reel?
For Shimano, if it ends in "1" it is left handed. So, for a right handed Curado, make sure you order one of the 200's
