Only one Curado DC in your arsenal, what technique do you use it on?

Recommended Posts

So, I'm probably going to be getting a Curado DC on Black Friday with the discount from TW. It'll be my first experience using a DC reel and also my only DC reel in my line-up for at least all of next season. I have Curado K's and a Fuego CT on all my setups now.

 

So my question is what technique would you use your DC with exclusively. These are my baitcasting setups.

 

- crankbait (x2) (one for lipless/smaller cranks and the other for larger and deep divers)

- jig/texas rig

- jerkbait

- topwater

I currently have the 8.5:1 in LHR and use mine for T-rigged worms and bullet weights.  I've also used it with topwaters.

Mine would be jerkbaits. Just because they are thrown a lot on windy days and cold temps meaning controlling your cast due to conditions and cold fingers may be more difficult.

I preordered a Curado DC when it first came out but cancelled at last minute I was going to put it on my spinnerbait chatter bait rod.

It’s just a reel. It casts well, and you can throw anything with it. It’s not foolproof and will still backlash.

I think Shimano is excluded - may be better to use an auction site for a discount.

I want one for a cranking set up so that’s what I would use it for.

I would use for soft plastic that often is an issue in the wind.....  Zoom lizards, creature baits, big ribbon tail worms, and  maybe finesse jigs.

I use it for any technique other than pitching/flipping and lures under 1/4oz.

 

It's ability to fix overruns really shines on long, full casts.
