With over 30 years under its belt as a work horse name for the tournament angler and weekend warrior alike, the Shimano Curado 200 M Baitcasting Reels continue this platforms history of providing exceptional performance with versatility in mind. An all new MagnumLite (MGL) III Spool featured on the Curado M provides unparalleled casting distance without any compromise to the spool's strength and durability. Tossing that frog, jig, deep diving crank, swimbait and more all while using heavy braid, fluoro, or mono just got easier, as this spool offers a lower start up inertia that works more efficiently with every cast to reach greater distances. SilentTune Technology introduced to this Curado 200 alleviates spool vibration on the cast, creating a much quieter user experience along with reduced frication to further enhance casting distance. Pinpoint accuracy to reach precise spots is very manageable thanks to SVS Infinity, a technology where fine adjustments to the reels internal and external brakes creates a user experience that the angler can feel directly attached to. Its smooth, consistent braking overcomes changing conditions, keeping line managed without a snag. Housing this reel's internals, a strong aluminum Hagane Body offers great rigidity for its internal components, mitigating any flex for optimal efficiency and great in hand feel. When the fish are choosing to push the limits, this reels Cross Carbon Drag works to tame even the largest trophy, ready for those double digit largemouth, walleye and more for your next personal best. A do it all reel to complete any angler's arsenal, the Curado 200 M is a feature and technologically packed option, ready to be your day in, day out reel for seasons of usage to come.

Technology Found in Shimano Curado 200 M Baitcasting Reels:

  • Micromodule Gearing: State-of-the-art gear design makes use of smaller gear teeth and more of them, which results in a more efficient gear train and much smoother retrieve.
  • X-Ship: By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear remains in precise alignment with the drive gear and stays in the same position under even the heaviest of loads. This eliminates friction between the spool shaft and gear which translates to better casting performance and increased gear durability.
  • Hagane Body: A reel body with high rigidity, which virtually eliminates body flexing due to it's stiffness and impact resistance. The result? An angler's actions are more efficiently transformed into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
  • CI4+: An enhanced version of the original CI4 material, this highly technical carbon material is 2.5 times stiffer than the original and is used to create weight savings on the reel.
  • MGL III Spool: Further thinning the spool to decrease inertia, without sacrificing durability
  • Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D): S3D Technology utilizes a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminum spool to significantly reduce spool vibration and increase smoothness when casting and retrieving.
  • SilentTune: By applying slight pressure to the bearing supporting the spool, Silent Tune reduces spool vibration during the cast which results in quieter casting and smoother spool rotation with less play.
  • S A-RB Bearings: These bearings undergo the same anti-corrosion process as Shimano's A-RB Bearings, with the addition of shields on both sides of the bearings to reduce the possibility of salt, dirt, or other foreign objects inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
  • Super Free Spool: SFS was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. The pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, which keeps the gear in perfect alignment with the spool shaft to eliminate friction for longer casts and smoother operation.
  • SVS Infinity: Provides easy to manage, consistent spool control and brake force that is easily adjusted as conditions change. Brake weights use inner friction against the raceway during the cast for precision casting even when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides quick, precise adjustments on the fly for when conditions or baits change.
  • Cross Carbon Drag: Allows for a wider range of drag settings, enhanced drag washer durability, and the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
