The MGL spool isn't a deal breaker, but that SVS on the side is.

Nope. But hopefully Shimano made some well needed improvements to bring back the masses.

MGL spool would put it firmly in close competition with any similarly priced Daiwa offering IMO.

Yeah I got no beef with Shimano. They make great quality reels.

You two giving the whole Shimano Curado line a bad wrap over the 70  ~roflmao

Of which you might eat your words. It's still very early though. Unfortunately we need a couple years to prove good or bad on the pawl and worm gear system

I'm happy with the only one I have now, the Curado I.
New stuff is always a good thing.

It's been a dwindling thing from most Shimano fans since the E. Big issue came when they brought the G, kinda made people sour.

So apparently its being marked as the Curado K. Here is the specs according to their rep.

The new 7th generation of Curado is a complete redesign loaded with new features. Built tournament tough, Curado is the benchmark for reliability and durability. Generations of anglers have looked to Curado as their trusted partner.
Shimano gives you more than ever with the new Curado K series reels. Now featuring the latest in Shimano technology, such as super smooth, efficient, durable MicroModule gearing, and offered in multiple gear ratios up to 8.5:1, Curado builds on its legacy as the ‘go to’ baitcasting reel for both fresh and saltwater action

A new matte black appearance with Curado "green" spool and cast control knob for a nod to the old B model.

MicroModule gearing uses smaller gear teeth to make for a smoother retrieve. By allowing more teeth to contact each other, the gear train becomes more efficient.

The latest generation of SVS Infinity allows for a wider adjustment with the brakes. The new design reduces vibration and maintenance. The result is a smoother and longer cast.

Reduced frame size to allow for a more comfortable feel in the hand. The 10% reduction in both length and width make the reel easier to palm and reduces fatigue.

The B side (palm side) plate is now attached to the reel.

6.2:1/26 Inches Per Crank
7.4:1/ 30 Inches Per Crank
8.5:1/ 36 Inches Per Crank

11 pounds max drag

90mm Handle Length

6+1 bearings (4 S-ARB, 2 SUS and Roller bearing)

Aluminum frame, CI4+ A-side, Graphite B-side

7.6 ounces (standard and HG)
7.8 ounces (XG)

$179.99

Sounds like a sweet reel. I like the fact they increased the reel handle length. 90mm is a great length.

Its been labeled as the K. I was pretty sure that the J didnt seem right as because of their salt water lines.

It's about damn time. They had to compete with Daiwa and their standard 90 mm handles on even their cheaper reels.

90 is a good size. The Shimano smaller handles really bug me. I hate having to pay that much for a reel then have to go upgrade the handle with an extra 70-80 bucks.

Yeah, I understand the G was not a good reel at all, and you almost never see them for sale secondhand either.

I think they have got it right this time with the new SVS Infinity system. Im still awaiting a response for the materials of the wormshaft and pawl.

What about the SVS dial?

The Side Plate being attached is a mother humper of a plus!

LH retrieve available in all the ratios?

I like that it went on a diet. The older models were a little chunky feeling for me.
