I love to throw large Crank Baits (Strike King 10Xd) and those large Swim Baits (Deps 175) but after a short time I am wore out. talking with Rick and Derrick at Anglers Pro Tackle in North Richland Hills they suggested I might try the Shimano Curado 300E. This Reel with its 6.2:1 gear ratio, over size handle and the variable braking system made all the differences. I can now throw these baits a country mile and retrieve them all day. If you like throwing these type baits you may want to give this reel a try. Dave Sr
