Salt or Freshwater

The feel of great quality. Spooled it with 40# Power Pro and put it on a Teramar rod. Casting is easy and brake adjustment is a breeze. Feels like it could winch a boat onto a trailer. I use it for light and heavy lures and bait fishing.
Strong performer! It's everything it's said to be and more.

Shimano CU300 Curado baitcasting reel.
November 4, 2015
I found the reel I was looking for very easily on the Tackle Direct website. It was priced well so I easily ordered it. The reel was delivered on time and was good quality as expected. It came well packaged from the company. I filled it with braided line and have been very happy with the reel.
Seems to be top quality with good strength and durability.
You have to be careful not to fill it too full of line or it will tangle easily with the braided line. Read the instructions carefully on how much recommended line.

I've had several versions of this reel. They are a classic. Decent casters and super accurate. There is a reason so many bass fishermen hoard these things. Great power and gearing too.

Out of the box ready

My first bait casting reel and I'm hooked, I don't think I would buy any casting reel other than the curado series.
