Shimano Curado 300 K Casting Reels

8 in stock

Tournament-tough quality and superb dependability, Shimano built the Curado 300 for anglers who aren’t just chasing fish but those targeting quality over quantity. Incorporating a deep 300-size spool intended for heavy-pound line and the needed capacity for extra-long casts, the Curado 300 features a long handle with wide-grip knobs to provide anglers with the extra power that’s necessary when pulling on big fish. At the backbone of the Curado 300 lies its rigid HAGANE Body that prevents flex when that giant finally decides to commit. Available in two gear-ratio options — a standard 4.7:1 and an HG 6.6:1 — the Curado 300 allows anglers to find the right reel to match their fishing style and needs. Engineered with power in mind, the standard 4.7:1 model pulls double-duty for anglers fishing slower, methodical presentations, or when fishing with Alabama rigs or magnum crankbaits. The HG’s 6.6:1 gear ratio provides a slightly faster retrieve and is ideal for anglers aggressively working baits or for quickly picking up topwater slack. Built to fish big baits for big fish, Shimano created the Curado 300 to perform and never back down.

Features:

HAGANE BODY
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing on the reel while fighting fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power, increasing efficiency through strength.
VBS
VBS uses centrifugal force, rather than magnets, to aid in controlling the cast. When turned on, the individual brake weights are forced outward at the beginning of the cast — when backlashes most often occur — to create friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure with which the brake weights contact the raceway lessens and allows the spool to continue spinning.
X-SHIP
X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This allows the gears to stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit of X-Ship technology is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This further benefits anglers with enhanced casting performance and casting distance of lighter lures.
CROSS CARBON DRAG
The Cross Carbon Drag material provides a wider range of drag settings compared to traditional drag materials. The Cross Carbon Drag provides the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever while providing anglers with increased durability.
S3D SPOOL
S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. By designing and constructing a balanced and uniform thin-wall aluminum spool, S3D creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.
SUPER FREE SPOOL
Super Free Spool eliminates friction on the spool shaft during the cast. Standard baitcasting reels are constructed in a way that when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft. This creates friction that can limit the length of a cast. But baitcasting reels with Super Free Spool are constructed so that the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing. When the clutch is disengaged in preparation for a cast, the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in perfect alignment. The result: zero friction is placed upon the spool shaft and enhances casting performance.
S A-RB
S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting rotation of the bearing.
