I really hope they got the K series right. I have been disappointed in both the G and I series reels. The E series reels are my go to reels (along with Daiwa Tatulas). I hope they hit a home run with these.

It would be great if they made them in Japan again but that ain't going to happen.

Really... Guess we will see about that. Guys are still holding on the their old B and E series reels for a reason. The I series were not that great. Although that seems to be what Shimano does. Come out with really great reels and then next update is [censored]. It flip flops.

I've got one on order, should be delivered today. Got the 8 geared reel. Will post a review after a clean, bearing flush and trip.

Got the curado today, like the longer handle and feels smoother out of the box than my e series curados. Like the size and I believe it will be the best seller ever, next to the original b series and e series.......

Took the reel apart yesterday and did a complete cleaning and bearing flush. It freespools like crazy, very close to my 2 chronarch mgl's. Took it out today and fished with it for about 4 hrs. Didn't have a chance to test the drag system but power wise for a 8.5 geared reel, the power is there. Had no problem throwing a spro bronzeye frog 40+ yards. Had 2 brakes turned on and the svs set on 2, no backlashes and just as smooth as any reel I have in the boat. I honestly believe this is the best performing curado I have ever fished, and I've had every series except for the old red one. Do yourself a favor, buy one, you won't regret it.....

Yes sir, you will start seeing more and more comments like turtdoggs, have you had a chance to handle one yet? I think you'd like it!

Im a bit of a Daiwa nut at the moment lol. They are all I own. Ill probably wait until they go on sale somewhere before I try one out. Like Black Friday or something of that nature.
