9 posts in this topic

Maybe im wrong but I thought the curado 200dhsv was a new reel, why did they remake it into the curado E this year? Ive seen a couple place blowing the old 200s out and wanted to know if they were a good reel or not? -thanks

Very nice reel! You can find some really good deals on them right now, definitly worth the investment if you aren't looking to spend 180 on the E's!

They were a very nice reel, I have 2 of them. As a prostaff, and talking to people at sportshows, The biggest complaint people had was weight. Shimano did not sell nearly as many as they thought they were going to. Hence, they went back to the drawing board and came out with the E.

But if you like the old "new" one, get em.. they are a very good real, I myself didnt think they were all that heavy. I used both of mine for carolina rig rods. and they did great.

I have two of the silver 100 series curados and would have to agree. I have never had any issues with these reels.

Hee Hee Hee, bass guys thinking their reels are heavy. wink

I've got one of each (gray and green) and they're both "light" in my book. But then again pretty much everything is compared to my Trinidad 16N.

Hiya -

One word as to why the did a redesign so soon: Revo. At the same price point, the Revo was eating their lunch.

Similar reels in lots of respects, but one major differentiator, as others have pointed out, was weight.

To be clear - this isn't a value judgment at all. The Curado Ds were and are great reels, and at the price some of them are being cleared out at, they're a freaking bargain. Purely a marketing and brand positioning thing. They were getting some competition, and they responded to it. Business is business...whether it's reels, or rockets.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

I agree RK, the 100 sized D curado is a really nice reel.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
