Any Custom Parts For The Curado I Series Reels?

Recommended Posts

Other that things like the Hawgtech cranks and cork knobs? I like to tinker with customizing stuff and I'm not seeing much out there for Curado I series reels. If there a Japanese equivalent to this reel that maybe had some mods?

 

I actually bought a Chronarch Ci4+ 150 today just because there is a ton of dress up parts out there for it.

You shouldn't have bought that Chronarch. I have 3 Curado I's and 3 Chronarch Ci4+ and I don't even want to pick my Curados up anymore haha. I asked this same question a while back on a different forum and everyone said nothing has come out yet. Hedgehog Studio usually has all the latest mods first tho so I would just continually check there if I were you. I know they have a few dress up parts like screws and other minor stuff, but nothing like spools and drag stars.

Haha, I basically feel the same way. The ci4 is such an amazing reel. If only I could afford more of them.

To the OP, you've officially got the Shimano bug. Can't say I know of anything for the new Curado yet.

As long as the parts aren't plastic, you can remove them and send them to the guys at Hawgtech to have them anodized. You can pick from about 8 or so colors so there should be a color that suits you. I had them do 2 reels and they turned out quite nice. Prices are pretty fair as well and the guys are outstanding to work with and do a good job of getting back to you in a timely fashion. I would call or email Mike and Robert for prices and what they can / can't do.

You could consider the longer handle from the Metanium XG as an upgrade, if you prefer longer handles.

If you order from Japan there are tons of handle and knob options. Hedgehog Studios has a cast control cap option, no spool options yet, but soon according to hedgehog studios.

I really like this second photo. I really wanted cork knobs to match the cork on my St. Croix Avid X but um, that really doesn't look bad blacked out like that.
