The famous Shimano Curado Reel, loved by many for years, introduces Micro Module Gearing to the range in the brand new released Shimano Curado K Reel. Originally designed for the elite baitcaster models, Micro Module technology changes the playing field in this price category, and makes an enduring favourite even more enticing. The Curado has been the staple of big bass anglers in the States. It has also become much beloved in Australia especially for those who target barramundi, yellowbelly and murray cod, now, the new technology additions take its appeal to the grade of excellence.
Of course, the 6 highly protected bearings provide a velvety smooth crank. It’s the Micro Module gears however that set the Shimano Curado Reel ablaze. The fine gear teeth, now in greater numbers, promote and incredible mesh and superb strength under load. The feel is as though there is nothing going on at all. The extreme work of the gearing is carried out without fuss and next to no noise. The only feedback you get is what is happening down at the lure end. It’s an incredible feel, responsive and sensitive.

You can feel confident to keep the pressure up all the way. With ample heavy braid spooled up, the Curado will hold its own against the like of big Aussie Bara or Murray cod.

Shimano Curado K Reel Buyer Guide
If you have ever wondered why buy a baitcaster fishing reel, the answer to that question is simple. Baitcaster reels offer better casting accuracy making them ideal for quite a few fishing scenarios here in Australia. They are ideal for pitching into snags such as over logs or fallen trees at your favourite bass, yellowbelly or cod hole and they are also ideal for tossing lures at barra in weedy ponds or dams. So, to sum it up whist they don’t offer huge casting distance compared to spinning reels they are far more ideal for tight water and fishing around structure, particularly with lures.
Next you need to pick which gear ratio model you wish to purchase in the new Curado K Series reels. We sell 6.2:1, 7.4:1 and a blistering 8.5:1 ratio model reel and you are probably scratching your head right now wondering which gear ratio model you should purchase.
If you are mainly throwing hardbody swimbaits or crank bait diver style lures then our suggestion will be to go with the 6.2:1 ratio model. However, if you need the lures to burn through the water a little quicker, like if you were using spinnerbaits as an example, it may make a wise choice to go with the 7.4:1 ratio model. If you simply want blistering retrieves and want to work your lure back to the boat or shore as quick as possible be it using a blade lure, spinner bait or plastic then make the 8.5:1 ratio reel the one you purchase.
As far as rod choice goes, Shimano Curado reels are baitcasters so they will only suit overhead baitcaster style fishing rods. We have quite a few for sale so if you need a helping hand picking a rod to match your new Curado reel then get in touch and we will point you in the right direction.
Micro Module gears have very small fine teeth that create and amazing lock and sync. The result is exceptional power transfer to the crank and a mechanism you simply cannot feel.
5 kg max of cross carbon drag allows for refined setting. Tune the fight so you always remain in control, not the fish.
6 S A-RB bearings promoted and incredibly smooth crank. Combined with micro module, casting and retrieve, especially under load, is effortless. Stainless bearings mean that you can use this reel either fresh or saltwater fishing.
SF technology combines with SVS infinity spool technology is for unrivalled accuracy and distance. SF reduces friction is reduced significantly, where SVS allows you to finely tune your cast to conditions and rig.
