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.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!

    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
