The Shimano Curado family sets the benchmark for performance and versatility among low-profile casting reels. Wielded by professional anglers and weekend warriors alike, Curado reels provide dependable, tournament-tested performance in a compact form factor that enhances success on the water. Shimano now introduces the Curado DC 200, leveraging Digital Control technology and increased line capacity for enhanced performance and flexibility.
Frequently, the fish that anglers want to catch most are also the farthest from the boat, requiring long casts to reach them. The new Curado DC 200 provides anglers with increased line capacity – up to 40% more compared to the smaller Curado DC 150 – bringing easily spooked, trophy-caliber fish well within range. Additional line capacity enhances versatility and performance using a wide range of baits and techniques, especially those using larger diameter line or larger lures.
Curado DC 200 boasts Shimano’s unique DC technology, I-DC4. This Intelligent Digital Control braking system utilizes a microcomputer to monitor spool speed 1,000 times per second, and applies the perfect amount of brake as the spool spins to prevent backlashes. Anglers of all skill levels will appreciate less thumbing and trouble-free casting in all conditions – especially when swirling winds drive fish into a feeding frenzy.
Shimano engineers built the Curado DC 200 to handle superlative fish thanks to a rigid HAGANE Body and durable Cross Carbon Drag. Shimano’s exclusive HAGANE Body technology enhances rigidity and eliminates flexing, transforming angler inputs into more direct and effortless cranking power. Cross Carbon Drag – the product of Shimano’s continuing emphasis on improving drag performance – provides an expanded range of drag settings for exceptionally smooth performance when battling tournament-winning fish. The Curado DC 200 withstands continual use and – and occasional abuse – by seamlessly blending toughness and durability with precision engineering and enduring craftsmanship.
