About Me:

I live in North Queensland, Australia and bought my Curado for casting small and medium size lures for Barramundi and other estuary species. I spooled it with 20 lb braid and found it perfectly easy to cast once the casting weights were adjusted. The main things I like are the silky smooth casting, retrieving and the drag is the smoothest I've come across for a reel in this price range. I also like the nice compact size of this reel. The only modification I will make is some after-market drag washers to get another couple pounds of drag pressure due to the power of the fish I am targeting. I used it straight out of the box and had no problem pulling in medium sized Barra but I think if I hook a big one I'll need more drag pressure. In summary I think this reel is great value, it is smooth, strong and out performs many reels I own which cost a lot more than the Curado. And it looks cool. Nice one.
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Durable, Line Doesn't Tangle, Reliable, Smooth Drag System, Easy Casting, Strength
Cons: none
Best Uses: Trolling, River Fishing, Lure Casting

I planned on using this for big bladed bucktails for musky, the funny part is that I bought the wrong model( I meant to by the 300EJ). I like the reel and will keep in for smaller baits. A good mistake I guess!
Pros: Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System, Speedy Retrieve ratio, Nice sized reel, Smooth Reeling, Easy Casting
Cons: none
Best Uses: Buzzbaits

I am out on a boat at least twist a month and this addition to my equipment (Shimano Curado 300E)meets all my need for light and heavy applications. I normally use a Shimano, Calcutta TE for Catalina kelp fishing but this reel meets and exceeds in lighter weight and easier casting for longer distances.
Pros: Reliable, Smooth Reeling, Easy Casting, Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System, Durable
Cons: none
Best Uses: Ocean Fishing, Shore Casting
