The Curado DC casting reel is Shimano's most advanced Curado ever produced. Built on the platform that has made the Curado name synonymous with durability and versatility, the Curado DC adds Shimano's NEW Digital Control Braking system. The DC Braking system uses a completely sealed microcomputer that analyzes the spool speed 1,000 times per second and automatically applies the precise braking to achieve maximum casting distance while preventing backlash. No matter the wind conditions, weather, or lure weight, 4 easy adjustments on the side plate allow the angler to quickly and definitively "set and forget" the brakes and let the reel do the work.

Shimano Technology Found In Curado DC Reels :
  • Cross Carbon Drag - Allows for a wider range of drag settings, enhanced drag washer durability, and the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
  • Hagane Body - A reel body with high rigidity, which virtually eliminates body flexing due to itís stiffness and impact resistance. The result? An anglerís actions are more efficiently transformed into cranking power. Itís efficiency through strength.
  • I-DC4 Braking - Intelligent Digital Control braking features an easy to use 4 setting external dial that can be easily adjusted on the water to provide optimal braking as conditions and lures change.
  • Micro Module Gear - State-of-the-art gear design makes use of smaller gear teeth and more of them, which results in a more efficient gear train and much smoother retrieve.
  • S A-RB Bearings - These bearings undergo the same anti-corrosion process as Shimanoís A-RB Bearings, with the addition of shields on both sides of the bearings to reduce the possibility of salt, dirt, or other foreign objects inhibiting the bearingís rotation.
  • X-Ship - By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear remains in precise alignment with the drive gear and stays in the same position under even the heaviest of loads. This eliminates friction between the spool shaft and gear which translates to better casting performance and increased gear durability.

Best Baitcasting Reel
5 star rating. I normally use Abu Garcia reels but the Cuardo dc is the best reel I've ever casted!! With the 4 levels of casting anyone who has ever used a Baitcasting reel will be highly impressed with this reel. From casting under docks to casting a country mile is only a click or 2 a way.I was so impressed with this reel it's the only baitcaster that I use.

Very smooth
I purchased the xg model and it's very smooth. No issues and even though I don't really utilize the DC braking system, whenever my girlfriend wants to use a baitcaster this is what I let her use. No backlash for her means more fishing for me.
