Since 1978, when Shimano first made fishing reels available to the North American market, they have consistently produced top quality reels respected by anglers of all stripes: freshwater, inshore, bluewater - you name it, Shimano's perfected it, and anglers love it. And lo and behold, Shimano's done it again with the Curado 200 K. This new marvel is a high-performance 200-size low profile baitcaster delivered in a super tough, tournament-grade package that builds off the already successful Curado series of reels.

The industry has responded well to the Curado 200K too. It was been recognized as an ICAST 2017 Award Winner for Best New Freshwater Reel and with it's robust list of features and tech, its no wonder why it was winner. The Curado 200K features MicroModule Gearing to ensure a frictionless gyration and it's fortified with Shimano's newest set of reel technologies: the SVS Infinity braking system for fine-tuning, X-Ship technology for more smoothness and durability, and the S3D for consistent spool control and brake force. Other technologies it includes are Cross carbon drag, Ci4+, and I-DC4.

Available in 6.2:1, 7.4:1, and 8.5:1 gear ratios in both Left and Right Hand retrieve.

Long casting

Curado 200 K casted perfectly. I Texas rigged with this reel for six hours. It took me a few minutes to adjust it. I fished with flourcarbon and It performed perfectly. It casts a country mile.

First Timer

This is my very first baitcaster and i couldnt be happier with it. I was warned many times that in learning i would tangle my line and it would be hard. I had no problem with this reel. Smooth casting and great control. I couldnt ask for a better reel to learn with.
