Could this reel handle saltwater?
Hello Seng. The Curado is primarily a freshwater reel. However, it can be used in the salt as well for lighter saltwater applications. It is recommended that the reel be cleaned after every use when being used for saltwater applications.

Can you fish with small jigs, etc. with the 301E, or is it strictly designed for larger tackle?
The 301E is designed for larger tackle. It will throw 1oz baits fine, but if you are fishing lighter, another reel is probably a better choice.
