Curado B Gear Set

Recommended Posts

Hey guys as most of you know I own a shimano curado B and after using it for while I have found that this is a tank of a reel.l am in the process of putting a flippin' and pitchin' combo together  and I would like to use that reel.  so my question is are there any high speed gear sets available for the curado B?  would 7:1 gears from a curado E work?  if not I guess I have an excuse to get a new reel! :eyebrows:   thanks.

Or just flip and pitch with a reel that isn't 7:1, like others have done for 40+ years.

I'm still using my old 6.2:1 Castaic's, even though I have a lot of newer reels.   Still like that original InstaGage design for short distance presentations!

Just use it.  You'll never be a better flipper and catcher of huge fish than this guy.  It is his reel of choice.   PS, there are no faster gears.  The only way to speed the reel up is with line diameter.

I used the Curado B's for pitching for several years, still own some of them and they still perform excellent. You don't need a high speed ratio since there's normally very little actual reeling involved.
