Shimano Curado is one touchy little sucker but I like it. Dont have any experience with the Helios...

Hard to beat the Curado for that price range.

I am a big fan of the Okuma reels, I have quite a few, that being said, you really cant go wrong with either.

lews tournament pro, or shimano curado/calcutta. i have 3 shimanos and 12 lews, and i wouldnt say one is better than the other, theyre both super smooth. i do like the fact that the lews are smaller and have bigger grips on the handles.
