CURADO K / Baitcasting reels

Discipline: Product

The standard bait casting reel in the US, the CURADO K features the latest in SHIMANO technology at an attractive price; the first smooth MicroModule Gearing to be built in to a reel in this price range. While the K series retains the same spool size as the previous generation, the body is 10% smaller, allowing compact palming. Reeling and gripping are important features on a reel, and thus the body structure is configured with reeling on the inside and gripping on the outside to highlight these features. The legendary green color of the CURADO is used on the K series as an accent color, with the dark body finish emphasizing its compactness.
