Anyone laid hands on one yet? The "reviews" seem promising but I seem to recall that being the case for the last few models as well. Still fishing my e7's, hoping this'll be the year shimano gets it right again.

In my opinion Shimano messed up by changing the Curado all the time. Find a good platform and stick with it.

My favorite reel was the Shimano Core 51 mg....
I still have 5 of them and they still work great. I can throw small light baits with accuracy on one and heavy football jigs with the same accuracy on another.
Best reel they ever made in my opinion....

I've handled one, and will tell you, it's the best Curado to date thumb

yea im with you. i own 17 of the e curados. the only way to improve on it imo is to make it a little more ergonomic. never had any problems out of them . but im still gonna look at the new ones.

Time will tell. Early reviews on the Curado I series said it was the best Curado ever also, but they turned out to be very noisy after using them a while.

Naw, not this reel, I hear ya on the I series, but improper maintenance caused most of the issues with that reel. The K is a completely different animal. If you close your eyes, you wouldn't know what's in your hand, it's very smooth out of the box, looks great, and palms excellent. Southwestern Parts have/had them in stock. For those of you on the fence, jump, you will be very happy.

I have the 6.2's and 7.4

Better than before, no doubt! I wish they bring back the Core! Best reel ever made in my opinion.

Those of you that have em, what do you think of the brake system? Saw somewhere it's the same system they put on the aldebran. Definitely sounds like it's got the right features, still afraid to preorder though. Where are you fellas already finding them in stock?

Most new reels always get hyped though and feel great out of the box... I'll be convinced when they've been put through the torture that I've put my E series through for 6 years and never had a single issue despite never cleaning or lubing them. I might try one someday, but there's absolutely no reason for me to stop using my E's.

I could pick up a G or I series Curado and immediately tell it was cheap compared to the E series. I hope they improved this one.

I was just able to find a group of 10 brand new in box Shimano Curado e7's. Those new K's look awesome but for me those green e7's are the best they have made since I have been fishing. Tried and true and these are brand new.

I would love to see the core come back. I try to buy them anytime I see one for sale, I think I have 15/16 now. It is just one of those reels that fits perfectly in my hand.

Curados E is the only one I have in that family. My son has an "I" but it wont last him long, has about 3 months left on a 1 year replacement policy through Gander Mountain too just for that extra kick to the nuts.
