Introducing the NEW Shimano Curado K


Built tournament tough, the Shimano Curado is the benchmark for reliability and durability. Generations of anglers have looked to Curado as their trusted partner.

Now, Shimano gives you more than ever with the new Curado K series reels. Featuring the latest in Shimano technology, such as super smooth, efficient, durable MicroModule Gearing, Curado builds on its legacy as the go to baitcasting reel for both fresh and saltwater action. The new Curado is a 200 size, offered in multiple gear ratios up to 8.5:1, with an MSRP of $179.99. The Curado will offically launch at ICAST 2017 and in stores soon after, so stay tuned to Shimano's Facebook page for live introductions, videos, and more details.


New MicroModule Gearing

MicroModule gearing is our newest gear technology, gears made with more and smaller teeth giving anglers the smoothest experience on the water. The precise engagement between the teeth means a smoother power transmission without reducing the strength of the reel.

New SVS Infinity

SVS Infinity is a centrifugal braking system, with brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast to control spool speed. Put simply, the SVS Infinity system provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. 

New Compact Body

Anglers will notice the comfort of the Curado K in their hands. The shape is more compact and ergonomic than ever before.
