Fantastic Reel
January 21, 2020
I am very pleased with the performance of this reel. I also have a non-DC version of the metanium. I have found the DC to better handle the into the wind casts without backlash.

Worth the price to me

If you can manage the cost you won’t regret the purchase. Sweetest casting/ flipping reel I have. Adjust for bombing cast or light flipping. This reel does it all for me. I’ve never had a reel able to cast 30# braid into the wind with light baits and not have backlashes. I will be saving for another!
ProsAll the above
ConsI can?t afford 5.

Def not for all but best high end reel!

For years I wanted the 2015 DC JDM version, but finally they released here in the states. Great awesome and fun to fish with. High Quality components, and really easy to cast with either braid, fluorocarbon or mono. Can't say how smooth it is. Comparatively Ferrari and BMW when compared with the Curado DC.

Shimano always made good freshwater gear
April 4, 2019
Way back 30 years ago plus and when I was younger my family lived a considerable amount further away from my fathers boat in Atlantic Highlands than i do today, so freshwater fishing was my main way of fishing, and my shimano was my go to company. Still have some of my old reels in the garage that still work smooth till this day that are older than my son and daughter.

Great reel. Super smooth and small profile.

Great reel for those just starting and for those yet to master a perfect cast without makeup a nest. The reel is really smooth, low profile and packed with the latest tech.

After a cast and you are cranking line back does the reel make any noise and or slight vibration while turning the handle? Is it smooth and silent like a non-DC reel?
1 Answers
They should run smooth like most Shimano reels.
