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

    • Lets try it like this.
    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
