A longtime favorite among anglers throughout the country, whether it be recreational or on the tournament scene, the Shimano Curado 200K Casting Reels sets the benchmark for reliability and performance. The Curado as a whole has been a tool of the trade, and what many other manufactures compare their reels to as it has been a long-standing name for decades, with continuous improvement throughout the years.
For the Curado K, MicroModule Gearing was added which creates a smoother and less "geary" feel as well as smoother engagement each handle turn. MicroModule Gearing is Shimano's term for using smaller gear teeth to increase the number of contact points between the drive and pinion gear, which gains a more efficient gear train. The reel also boasts Shimano's SVS Infinity braking system, giving the angler greater control and easy adjustment to precisely adjust for changing weather conditions or lighter/heavier baits. An external adjustment knob provides for more precise controls, while internal brakes (easily accessible from the side plate) provides for a broader adjustment.
Available in multiple gear ratios to fit the angler's needs, the Cruado 200K is a great performer for anglers looking to step up their game or equip an arsenal. The Curado has a history of being a proven winner, with each new model stepping up the game for reliability and performance for the dollar.
