The CURADO was originally designed for the American Black bass market, but is perfectly suited to European predator species like zander and perch. Available in both Casting and Spinning configurations, the Curado perfectly matches the popular Curado Baitcasting reel and offers excellent value for money, combined with a modern look and feel. The responsive, lightweight, Full Carbon blanks feature Shimano's exclusive Hi-Power X technology, which reduces twist when casting to improve accuracy and increases power in the lower part of the rod for improved fish-playing control. The fast action works perfectly with both casting and spinning reels and maximizes casting distance across a wide range of lure weights. Fitted with high quality Fuji guides and a lightweight custom designed Shimano Ci4+ reel seat, and a modern split EVA handle, there are five Casting models and three Spinning models to choose from.
