Can't you get 2 curados for the price of one metanium? The new curado is pretty nice.

Yup but the Curado is not in the same league as the Metanium.

I have 2 curados and love them, excellent workhorse reels. I find myself going to smaller and lighter reels for some techniques due to having surgery on my wrist in 2014. With that being said, Ive handled the metaniums before and seem awesome, just don't know if I wanna spend that much on one reel.

IMO best reel on the market. I have two and was hoping you had a used one for sale when I clicked the link. It's extremely expensive which is stinks. Not because of the initial reel, but because you'll want 5 more.

I have two and they are by far my favorites. One of partners used mine and has bought 4 of them since. Aaron Martens using them. He had a video on High Speed reels that was interesting.

Planning to use my tax return to get next one. Going to try Japan Lure Shop next time.
