Bought this reel for saltwater use. Reel has nice drag with plenty of holding power. I own several 200 series curado's that I use for freshwater, so decided to give the 300 a try. As with all my curado's I love the reel. Only reason I didnt give 5 stars is because #1 Cost, #2 the oversize handle often trips the bail in midcast causing the bait to sling off. But I would definately recomment this reel....... just bring plenty bait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishkiller30 Curado 300 EJ Rocks
I paired my Curado with a Carbon Fiber Lite Micro-Guide Rod and headed for the Ocean. My first strike was a Barracuda; it fought, bent the rod and provided me with a lot of fun. After landing the Barracuda, I caught many Sculpin, Rock Bass and other bottom fish. I got a good strike from a Yellow Tail, but it let loose before the hook set. Bottom line, the Curado 300 EJ performed extremely well and provided maximum fun with frisky Barracuda. I used 30 # Pro Line and a topper of 30# mono. After three trips to the ocean with this set-up, I am convinced that the Curado 300 EJ is a real gem and I highly recommend it. After Ocean use, the reel must be rinsed off with fresh water and set out to dry.
