What would the 50G be? With the Curado 50e, the Chronarch 50e, Core 50mg7,and the older Chronarch 50mg seems like they have it covered.

Currently they have the Core and Chronarch, but no Curado. The Curado is a new model, so we need a new 50.

How about an aluminum version of the Core, we call it the Chronarch 50G, we then take the now Chronarch 50e and call it the Curado 50g. Man this all seems strangely familar.

Ya, the cutbacks required to get the Chronarch 50 to the Curado price point would eliminate most if not all the advantages the 50 size offers over the 200.

First of all, the Chronarch is an E model, so you would be going backwards to make that the Curado G, do your homework, but I see your point. My point is if we can get the new G model in a 50 series for $169.95.

I'm very familar with Chronarch E, and going backwards does not seem to be an issue with Shimano, seeing as we are now fishing a Curado 50, and Curado 200 E, both now with Chronarch badgeing, it is you who needs to open your eyes, and stop drinking the cool- aid.

I knew this was going to happen with you non Shimano fishers. Lets say it together, G comes after E, so since the Chronarch was on E, thats the platform used, thats what we ended up with. If you knew Shimanos history with using similar platforms, you would understand. Fish a Chronarch E vs Curado E, and you WILL notice a difference. Until then, I will drink my Kool Aid and fish my Shimanos till the day I die.

Assumuptions will get you in trouble. I do fish Shimano reels, I have and have owned many,many of their products, I still have a few Core's that I use.

I see and read the many posts you make about Shimano reels, and I have no doubt that you are a true fan of the reel, but what you lack is eductation and experience. You are a guy who obviously has never had the pleasure of fishing a true Chronarch reel, or a Core or Calais for that matter. I know this because if you had, you would be just as disapointed with the Chronarch E immitation as the rest of the knowledgeable Shimano fans. See an anodized spool and handle are a far far cry from what the Chronarch once was, and it is an emabarrasment to this Shimano fan to listen to you parrot out the company line dribble instead of speak from a strong background of experience with the Shimano line of products.

Next time you label someone, take your own advice and do your homework.

Yes I have fished the older Chronarchs, Cores, and Curados. I have sold those off recently. I know what you are saying when you say TRUE Chronarchs etc. Im not going to argue that there were better or not, for me they werent due to the feel. Were they smooth as hell, yes. Since then, we have moved forward, or backward depending on your views. The new ones being a better profile for my little fat fingers, is why I dont care about the past reels, and sold them all for the newer models. I get your point, and even if you are a Shimano fisher, then you would see what Im trying to say about a new G model Curado 50.

Cool, I understand your view, but I will digress and ask you what the 50G would be. To bring it in at the price point you suggested, it would have to be more similar to a Citica in features, or possibly even a composite framed reel. There you go, the Caenan 50G.

I don't see it happening. Since the E series, they've billed the form factor as a 200 size reel in a 100 size package. I don't recall any Curado 50 size reels that predated E series. The Curado 50e was sort of a "weirdo" in the line.

Yeah, but if they could take the new G style and mold it to a 50 size, keeping the Curado G price point, I think they could sell. Even if like aavery says to be more like the Citica. I think if they could keep the Curado 200 at that price, they can think of something to have a cheaper option for a compact reel other than the Chronarch and Core.

Wouldn't you just rather spend 30 more dollars and get a chronarch.....

No. I have two. I want a 50G to add to the collection. Even when the Es were available, people still bought them. I see your point though.

Sometimes I write things I wish I could take back. This is one of those times, fishing reels are not worth getting bent out of shape over. I could have made my point without offending anyone, and wish I had.
