Shimano Scorpion 1000???

3 posts in this topic

I am in the market for 2 new baitcasters. I fish mostly soft plastics and jigs. I will be putting new reels on a 6'6" MH Falcon Low Rider (mostly for jigs) and a 7' MH Gapen (worm rod). I am considering the Shimano Scorpion 1000. Any feedback on these reels or other good suggestions for my applications would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Double

I know the scorpion's are the Japanese version of the Curado. And the Curado is the standard Bread and Butter bass reel from Shimano. They should be great reels.

I have a scorpion 1000, outstanding reel! I can throw 1/8 oz jigs , weightless worms no problem. The brake system is outstanding. It rivals the chronarch super free in smoothness at $100 less. I added a curado super free to my line up this year to get a reel with a little more line capacity. I would say you cant go wrong with either reel. I would say though that the scorpion is more for lighter lures,I dont use it for pitching bigger (1/2 oz +) jigs and lures ,it is also a great reel for throwing tiny crankbaits like the stike king 1xs. I use a curado for the heavy stuff. Good luck Dan

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
