For smarter, more efficient lure casting under a variety of circumstances, the new Curado DC changes the game and represents the latest in Shimano Technology development. Shimano’s Digital Control (DC) braking system is the star element of this reel and gives you the ability to make every cast count. When the DC braking system is engaged during a cast, little to no thumbing of the spool is required to control the line propelling from the spool. This is due to the internal microcomputer that controls the spool rotation by measuring its speed during a cast. As a result, the appropriate amount of braking force to keep the cast under control is applied and backlashes are prevented. While electronic, it doesn’t require a battery, as the system re-charges itself as the spool rotates. The Curado DC offers four adjustable settings that enables anglers to fish a wide variety of lures of different shapes and sizes, in all weather conditions, without having to constantly fiddle with internal brake settings. It can also accommodate different casting techniques and even line type — monofilament, fluorocarbon or braid. Housed within the aluminium Hagane Body, Micromodule gearing provides seamless gear meshing for smoother winding performance, whether on the retrieve or when hooked up. It also features X-Ship and four SA-RB bearings, two A-RB bearings, and an anti-reverse roller bearing to ensure winding remains smooth and effortless. There are four reels in the Curado 150 DC stable, including a choice of a medium (6.2:1) to an extra fast (8.5:1) gearing ratio, and a left-hand wind option is also available. Line capacity on the 150 DC is 150m of 20lb Power Pro, while the Cross Carbon drag can output 5kg of heat right across the range.
