Curado DC
« on: December 08, 2018, 05:41:52 AM »

I've been messing with the DC for awhile now, at least long enough to form a opinion.
Gotta say,  it's been a long time since I've been impressed by a reel this much.
 For me it's not about it being hard to backlash although it's not impossible, it's about it being so much more efficient and making more casts.
 The thing is just effortless to throw ,doesn't matter if your throwing a DD22 or a 1.5 squarebill it handles them the same. And the price is at least within reason.
 I have more on the way.

Thanks for the feedback. I have not found a bad opinion of them from an honest report. There are haters out there that will not be happy with a shimano, same said for a daiwa...

I'm am so close to pulling the trigger on one. Maybe if I survive the holidays with some spare cash :-*

I think you'll like it Mike. It's surprising how effortless a little roll cast with a squarebill or spinnerbait is.
I was throwing a wiggle wart on a Witch Doctor Surman 50g MH . It's really too much rod for a wart but it still would easily out distance my usual wart rod with a Curado E5.
I think anyone looking for a reel in that price range should give it consideraton.

I have several Shimano DC reels with the latest one being a Scorpion DC (my 2nd.) They are the Curado's 1st. cousin. I have to agree with Loomisguy's assessment of the reel. It is much easier to set up than the Calais DC & the Antares DC.  I also think if your looking in that price range be sure to take a hard look at that reel.

I struggle skipping with a bait caster. Would the DC help me skipping?

Can you elaborate on what you didnt like to much about it? What feature or mishap started the dislike?

Good question. I never held a DC but am interested in possibly the future of reels and what they can do that solves issues we have currently.

With the DC control set at the highest setting I don't think you  could backlash it skipping .
I hate to say anything is impossible but it would be a chore.

Even on the tightest settings one could still backlash but the DC models are very good at keeping it to a minimum. You have to try and backlash if you want to create a significant backlash. That said the only one's I've played with are the Calais versions, I've not been lucky enough to toy around with the new Curado DC :surrender:

Them Calais Dcs are just amazing pieces of machinery.

Here is my fear of the DC reels. I can adjust my reels now to fit my style of casting (Fine tune) Loosen or tighten is very fine increments . If I buy a DC reel how do I know the preset will match my style of casting? Will it be to tight or loose? Maybe I am over thinking the issue . Am I missing something?

I hope what I am trying to say came across right.

There is still adjustment for the spool tension. 4 settings for the brakes.  I think you would be hard pressed not to find a setting that would work for a particular line, bait ect.
