he Shimano Curado is one of the most
established series of reels in all of bass fishing.
Throughout the years, the Curado has been a highly popular reel thanks to their durability, quality, and
relatively affordable price point.
Over the past twenty years, the Curado has been a go-
to for bass anglers everywhere.
The newest version may be their best release ever
as the Curado DC (short for Digitally Controlled breaking
system) has been highly anticipated since it was announced
and that was before it won Best Freshwater Reel at the
2018 ICAST show.
