Shimano Curado Rods

Shimano proudly announces the release of the brand new Curado rod range. Designed to match the performance, technology and angling abilities of Shimano Curado reels, these rods will be a popular choice for anglers across Australia.

The Shimano Curado range of fishing rods will put you in front of more fish. From a 2-4kg rod for chasing bass around your local freshwater creeks to a 6-10kg rated rod for chasing barra across the top end, these rods are made with reliability at their core without compromising performance or quality. Featuring Shimano’s X5 Blank construction and finished off with cork grips and Fuji Alconite rod guides, Shimano Curado Fishing rods deliver incredible flexibility and power with the sensitivity needed to cast lures with confidence.

When it comes to fishing for Murray Cod or Barramundi, many anglers will be well aware that a heavier class of tackle is necessary. So, Shimano has created their Curado line of rods (in the heavier models) with the best rod guide frames to accommodate heavy-duty kit. A fantastic element for anglers who use heavier line and leaders or need a little more power on the water.

Shimano’s popular Curado series finally has a rod to match. We were all excited when our rep announced the new model, and we are now stocking them at competitive prices!

Shimano Curado Rod Buyers Guide

When choosing which Curado rod you will purchase, you should consider a few key factors.

For anglers who fish light, the 610BCL is the ideal option. With a line class rating of 2-4Kg and a light lure cast weight of 1-10 grams, it makes the most appropriate choice for anglers who fish for Australian bass, bream and flathead.

Models 721BCM, 701BCM and 641 BC are perfect for targeting fish that produce intermediate power. The medium models will cover it all, from landing a larger flathead or yellow belly to fingermark and saratoga.

661BCH is our suggestion for anglers who specifically target murray cod and barra. With the heaviest line rating in the range of 6-10Kg, it makes the best choice for landing much more powerful fish.

All models are baitcaster rods, so you will need to purchase a baitcasting reel to match, and naturally, the Curado reel is our top suggestion.


  • Shimano’s X5 blank construction, coupled with Fuji alconite guides, results in precision casts.
  • Appropriately sized guides allow for heavier lines and leaders, an advantage in the heavier rods to tackle barramundi, cod and other powerful heavyweights.
  • Shimano Curado Rods with cork grips gives you a better feel, firmer grip and more control for better hooksets.

Shimano Curado has a reputation for being one the best on the market. The new model rod to match is finally here, and we are excited to offer you an opportunity to buy it at competitive prices while stocks last. Shimano Curado rods will help your fishing game, so don’t wait any longer! Don’t miss out! Buy now, before they all sell out.
