Reinventing a reel is never easy, but as the new Curado E series demonstrates sleek design and cutting edge performance was at the forefront of Shimano engineering objectives. Upon first glance, the Curado E series is reminiscent of a high performance Jaguar sport car featuring a metallic green goblin finish and smooth flowing curves, a return to the green paintjob that defined the Curado in a class of its own as one of the worlds best selling baitcasters. Good looks and features arent just skin deep either, all models feature lightweight aluminium frame with graphite side-plates, an aircraft grade aluminium magnumlite spool, high efficiency gearing and feature no less than 7 silky smooth bearings. The range features 3 right hand and 2 left hand wind models so that all anglers will have the option to choose a model that is perfectly suited for their intended fishing pursuits whether that be backyard bassn or wrestling an impoundment barra from the timber. And to complete the package, a baitcast reel just wouldnt be the same without the following trademark Shimano features - Super Free Bearing Supported Pinion Gear System, Super Stopper II, Assist Stopper, QuickFire II Clutch Bar, Double Anodized Spool and Handle, Dartainium Drag and Variable Brake System (VBS) with Reduced Mass Hub.
