As tough as a tank, with the performance of a sports car, the well-priced Curado M 200/201 is a brilliant mid-sized baitcasting reel for small to mid-sized predators. Offering standard, high speed and extra high speed retrieve options, there is a Curado M to suit all preferences.
There are many variations of the Curado family and the Curado-200/201 size is the most wide-ranging, covering a broad spectrum of fishing styles, techniques and lure sizes. Packed with some of Shimano’s top gear technology, and designed with a low-profile that sits snugly to the rod, you will instantly feel at home with a Curado 200/201. They cast extremely well, feel solid and smooth, and fight like a demon when the pressure is on.
All Curado 200/201 models have a tough aluminium HAGANE Body with a lightweight CI4+ side plate and are finished in a satin black colour. But do not be fooled by the understated appearance, which looks great on any baitcasting rod - especially the Curado family, inside is a drive train to match the toughest challenge. All models have X-SHIP technology and Micromodule Gear, plus SILENT TUNE to enhance the silky-smooth rotation. The inclusion of the latest POWERHOOKING Drag tells you all you need to know about the characteristics of this beautifully engineered model. When it comes to casting, the vibration-reducing MGL III spool is controlled by SVS Infinity breaking, which is simple to adjust and easy to use. Available in various model configurations to suit almost every retrieve speed preference.

X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano A-RB roller bearings. This creates more stability.
Micromodule: The addition of MicroModule gear technology to the worm shaft idle gear reduces oscillation vibration. This is an incredible breakthrough in design and deliveres an outstanding level smootheness without sacrifising strenght or durability. The encahanced smoothness results in greater sensitivity transmitted from your rod, line and lure to your hand.
Shimano S A-RB bearings are high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust. S A-RB bearings are used in salt water reels.
Diecast aluminium is used for many types of reel and is most common on fixed spool reel bodies and rotors.
The precision engineered main Hypergear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve playing torque with vastly reduced component wear.
The Super Free bearing supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing and when the clutch in disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is a smoother free spool.
Super Stopper is a one-way roller bearing that eliminates backplay for solid hooksets.
Level Wind System ensures perfect distribution of line across the spool.
SVS Infinity is Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology. SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.
The HAGANE Body is produced from high rigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, whilst at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rock-solid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater e ciency throughout the reel.
