I really want to see a size comparison to a Chronarch or Core 50

They look the same size as the cI4, if so that's a comfortable reel and not big at all. I've never fished with one but checked them out at store and I like the profile of them a lot. Would be very easy to palm.

I ordered one.... They said it will be at my door Mon. Or Tues.

At 930a this place had 13 that's it. Also I was the 3 rd payor so got the 7.2.1 R/H

Waiting.......

I imagine they are the same size or about the same size as the 200E which was a very small reel when viewed from the side. I hope it isn't as wide though.

If anyone who gets one early can do a picture comparison between the 200E side by side, I have a "Like" ready for you :D

I tell you, if the winning angler of the Classic wins on a Curado I.  Yeah, we might be able to find one come October.

I was planning on picking one up at the Classic Expo but there aren't any lefties yet. I was told by the guys at the Shimano booth the best case scenario was the beginning of April.

Fished it today...Blown AWAY!

 

I have a 50e Curado and a 200e Chronarch and this reel blows them out of the water in terms of casting, smoothness, and braking...it's not close guys. I just bought a Tatula type R last year and this reel is much better in my mind. It will take a few months of fishing them both to give an honest true opinion, but right now I am a believer. 

 

Using it with a 6 speed for spinnerbaits. Thing is a dream. Pics are coming.

Can't comment on the drag yet. We had some bad storms and all of our rivers are running far to hard to catch big numbers. I just wanted to test it out and IT PASSED with an A+!

Nice pics and mini review!  I knew it would be awesome just by having the SVS Infinity. Thanks for posting for us to see it.

I'd so much rather spend $180 on this than $200 on the Chronarch 200/50e.  I'm glad I got my Chronarchs while the TW sale was going!  ($150 each).  The only thing I'm worried about this reel is the size.  The ci4 palms so much better for me than the Chronarch 200e since I have small hands.  If the Curado 200i is the same width as the Chronarch 200e, palming just wont be as optimal.  Definitely not a deal breaker though!
