Shimano Curado DC 151 - Left Hand Wind

The new Shimano Curado DC is not only a brand new reel, but a breakthrough in reel building innovation that redefines baitcasting reel performance. This reel combines the original, top quality Shimano Curado components with the awesome new technology of the DC (Digitally Controlled) braking system, resulting in one of the most dependable and technologically advanced reels on the market. The I-DC4 braking system will help the angler cast further and with ease, reduces the chance of backlash or overwind. The total of 6 + 1 ball bearings in combination with MicroModule makes the reel run insanely smooth. 

The externally adjustable braking system is measured and controlled by a microcomputer every 1/1000 of a second, making for the most simple to use, yet top quality baitcaster on the market.

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.
