Shimano Curado I Baitcast Fishing Reel
The enduring Curado baitcaster continues to be upgraded every few years and the I series takes design and performance characteristics to a new level.
X-Ship is a big feature of the Curado I series. Supporting the pinion gear with two SA-RB bearings, a bigger drive gear and increased gearing efficiency provides ultra-light rotation of the swept aluminium handle. Stable Spool Design reduces spool vibration, and with Super Free Spool delivers a smooth feeling on the cast or retrieve. An Escape Hatch sideplate grants easy access to the Infinity Braking System for making adjustments when lure sizes and fishing conditions change.
10 YEAR WARRANTY
SHIELDED ANTI-RUST BEARINGS
The HAGANE Body is produced from highrigidity aluminum or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rocksolid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARS ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust.
SUPER FREE SPOOL
The Super Free bearing supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased freespool.
Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy to manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.
XShip is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the center line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano ARS roller bearings. This creates more stability.
Shimano's S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. By designing a balanced and uninform thin wall aluminum constructed spool, S3D creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.
