Shimano Curado I Series Baitcast Reel
The Shimano® Curado® I Series Baitcast Reel includes major improvements that will increase casting distance, braking performance, and hard-fishing durability. X-Ship provides increased gear durability, improved performance with lighter lures, and longer casts. An externally-adjustable SVS Infinity braking system gives you the ability the precisely adjust your cast, even with lighter lures, and Shimano's Stable Spool Design virtually eliminates spool vibration and improves consistency of rotation and smoothness exponentially. Other advantages include 5 ball bearings and 1 Super Stopper Anti Reverse roller bearing; Power AL aluminum frame; Super Stopper Anti Reverse; Super Free Spool; and Cross Carbon Drag. This reel can be fished in both freshwater and saltwater.

X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear is eliminated, enhancing the casting performance with lighter lures, and allowing for longer casts.
Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force on the new Curado I series baitcasting reels. With brake weights that use 'inner friction' against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed especially when using lighter lures, plus the external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits. Combined with X-Ship Technology, anglers will experience precision cast control.
Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D)
Shimano's S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. By designing a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminum constructed spool, S3D creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.
