Description

Shimano Curado BFS Baitcasting Reel

The Curado BFS is a special model within the CURADO family designed specifically for casting lightweight rigs with thinner lines. With this new reel it is possible to cast light lures and rigs with ease. Powerful and smooth rotation is achieved with the X-SHIP system and all inner parts are protected by a strong and rigid HAGANE body. Once hooked into a fish the angler is up for a treat with the exciting drag sound which is often not present on bait casting reels.

So what do all these letters and numbers mean?  I hear you say...

Let's try explain things here:

  • BFS = Bait (Baitcaster) Finesse System
  • DC = Digitally Controlled (fool proof!) casting system
  • C = Compact body, slightly smaller than the standard
  • HG = High Gear, faster retrieve than the standard
  • XG = Extra Gear... even faster than the HF version, these letters don't determine size
  • S = Shallow spool, ideal for braid
  • DH = Double Handle
  • Ci4 = A lightweight material!
  • MGL -Magnumlite, a reel with components, often spool made from a lighter metal than others, 30% lighter than Ci4!
  • F or R = If the model name has F or R at the beginning, this is Front or Rear drag. The letter following the F determines the release age, so FK is newer than FJ. A little like the old car number plate system. 
  • 1, 2, 3000 etc = Determines the size which goes up with the number although the 2500 and 3000 are the same size, just the 3000 has a larger spool and sometimes different shaped handle... YES I know it is a bit confusing, but hopefully this helps a little in choosing the perfect reel for you.
