Greater comfort means better control. Shimano® has enhanced the popular Curado® by downsizing the body, upsizing the gearbox, and increasing the bearing count—improvements which add up to a much smaller, lighter reel that's also smooth, strong, and ergonomically precise. High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) assures clean, flex-free retrieves, even under heavy loads; a shielded S A-RB® ball bearing at the reel's heart helps maintain performance over the long haul. Rugged aluminum frame with A7075 aluminum Magnumlite® spool; titanium line guide; Super Free; pinion gear support system; Variable Brake System (VBS®); Super Stopper II with Assist Stopper; Dartainium® drag. 6+1 bearings.

HEG (High Efficiency Gearing) uses advanced componentry and solid 1-piece frame and sideplate construction to eliminate flex in the drivetrain, for unmatched strength. Super Stopper is Shimano's exclusive instant anti-reverse system, built with a one-way roller bearing that eliminates all back-play in the handle for instant hooksetting power. Super Free is a bearing-supported pinion gear system that holds clutch elements in precise alignment, virtually eliminating friction on the spool shaft during the cast. Quick Fire® II enables quick, easy casting. The clutch bar disengages the spool, allowing the line to free-spool, slowed only by the brake setting. The spool re-engages quickly as the handle is turned. Fluidrive® gearing means that your reel was manufactured with the highest tolerances and utmost control in the gear-cutting process, to ensure a smooth, powerful retrieve every time. Line recovery in inches per handle turn.
