Been Thinking About This For 4 Days...help Me Out

Recommended Posts

I found a brand new in the box Curado 200E7 that I can get for 150.00. [never owned one]

 

As of tomorrow with a reel trade in, we can get a Revo S with cent brakes only also for 105.00 [have last years model]

a JM sig with dbs [which I love] for 114.00,

or a PQ with dbs [a lot heavier but also really like] for 65.00.

 

If cost was not a factor, and you needed another reel, which would you do...

It would depend on what it's main use would be. The E7 brings in close to 29ipt, and it is a heck of a nice reel. FWIW I bought my NIB E series for 159, so it's not that great of a deal. Cost not a factor and I needed high speed probably the Curado.

I would go with the curado. Two reels in completely different price ranges though. Two reels is only better than one if you need two.

Don't underestimate the S. Great little reel.

Thanks Fella's

I need a new one to pair with my Fenwick Techna I use for plactics.

The ipt which was my first consideration for all 3 are fairly close to each other, too close for me to just use that as the deciding factor.

7:1 Curado is 29"

7:1 PQ is 29"

6:4 only Revo S has 26

7:1 JM  31" [6:4 has 28]

 

As I said, I have a PQ, a JM, and last years S that I use every outing, Tourn or just messing around

 

Since I'm really not brand loyal, just what to match combos for ease and efficiency for each technique....

I'll probably go for the Curado as I don't have one, the E's will become very scarce in the near future, and since they are spoken of very highly here.

 

Time to go to bed...I'm deciding this as I'm typing!!

 

Thanks for the replies..

Cost aside, Curado. Cost considered, PQ.

I second that. Im a die hard Abu guy, but if money wasnt an issue, all my Revos besides my Premier and MGX would be swapped for Lexas.

The Curado is a great reel and you can't go wrong with it. But the JM Reel for $114 is a really great deal and a very nice reel, just a little bigger and heavier.

$150 for a left over E7 is about the going rate, not a super deal but not bad. When they first went on clearance I bought them for $98. The Revo S is a comparable reel and more of a discount. Bang for the buck wise The PQ is a real value at $65. All are serviceable with slight feature differences. It comes down to your own priorities.
