My E Series Vs G Series Evaluation
Posted August 08 2012 - 09:24 PM
The G Series Curado Is NOT built on the Caenan body...... it is close, but there are some slight differences in the lines. I went over the reel with a fine tooth comb and it seemed smooth and the quality looked pretty good. at this point I ask the clerk to pull a lefty out for me to check as the one in the showcase was a righty. I unwrapped it and turned the handle, and thought, OK. Then I depress the thumb bar, and at this point I do not feel very good. It was very stiff, and made a unappealing sound. I tell him to pull another, and guess what....... the same thing. I try the last one they had, and bingo this one works nice and smooth with no unpleasant sounds.
The guy thought I was nuts till I told him to try all three, and tell me which one he would buy. Well, he tried them and he looked at me and said "WOW". He could not believe the difference in the three reels.
At this point, I'm not buying the G Series as I did not feel the quality was consistent, and for $159.00 it should be. I now have him pull three Chronachs from the shelf, and all three were spot on perfect. Needless to say, I came home with a Chronach 201E7.....
My E Series Citica is by far a better reel than the G Series Carado, at least in my eyes. I'm sure my Citica, and Chronach will give me many years of trouble free enjoyment.
