# CRCX711 HA. If you can afford it you need both of them. This is what the Pros use. The Chronarch reel looks like a cheap plastic reel. The Curado looks like a money reel. Quality wise they are so close you can't tell either reel from the other in the dark. I have 2 of each rod and reel and can afford to buy anything but choose these. Cast hundreds of times a day, changing baits between the 4 rods and reels each rigged differently, almost exactly the same weight, my shoulders and arms never get sore and tired. And the Curado is even a little less expensive.
But people are complaining about the number of bearings. I would put 5 of shimanos bearings agaisnt 11 of another companies because shimano has been making better components for longer. Look at shimano's background. they are in the bicycle business, in that business they make some of the best wheels around, Why? because of the bearings that they put in the rims. these help them use alot less energy while riding. same with the reel, when you cast the high quality bearings that are being used require less force to make them start to spin. Hope this helps a little and sorry if it took a while to get to the point.
