Shimano Curado I Baitcasting Reels
|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.

This reel probably represents the best value in low profile baitcasters right now. I have this and the Chronarch Ci4 and there is only a slight difference in smoothness. I really like the fact that it is a 200 size reel and could do double duty in fresh and salt

Its smooth strong and can cast light lures a mile. I put this reel to the test the other day and fought some nice sized stripped bass at the river and it was pulling them bad boys in with no problem. The drag was very smooth so when ever the bigger one made a long run I hade no problem with it.

I have all Curado 200 Bantam BSF reels and love them they are so smooth and dependable however Shimano no longer repairs the older models at the Irvine Shimano Dealer. So I figured I would try the new Curadoi 200 in hope this new model would perform as well, so far so good, this new reel cast like my older Curado BSF 200. I have not caught a fish yet to check drags yet so I will get back to you when I can check the smoothness of the drags.

The St. Croix TIC70MHF3 Tidemaster Inshore Casting Travel Rod would match very well with the Shimano Curado for Peacock bass in the size range your aiming for.
