Buddy of mine just bought a shimano curado dc 150 and swears by it. Is it really worth the money or worth getting.

It does everything you'd expect of a reel in that price range.  It doesn't massively out-perform its competitors, but it also doesn't lag behind.  Its a fine $200-$250 reel.

I recently got one too.  I'm looking forward to fishing with it - haven't got to go yet.   My thought is that this reel is for reaction baits, like square bills, spinnerbaits, chatter baits, etc.   I'm not seeing the point of using a reel that is designed to cast far for pitching soft plastics, which for me anyway, is a 60' or less deal.  Sometime this month, I'll get to go.

I have owned (probably leaving some out) Curado 100Ds, I series, G series, H series, K series, Chronarch 50Mg, 50E, 200E, 150 Mgl, Core 100, 50Mg7, Antareas, Scorpion 70 Xg, and I bet about 20 more that I am leaving out. The Curado DC may possibly be the best reel I have used. I wish I had 10 of them.

So it is worth it?  I have never spent that much on any sort of fishing equipment and just want to make sure before I go spending it.

I like mine better than any of the Curado's also going back to the old greenies.

I think the real advantage to the reel for me is that it's just more efficient .

Underhanded roll casts going down the bank with a spinnerbait or squarebill are effortless.

Only you can decide how to spend your money. If your looking to buy a reel in that price range they are worth a look.

 For me , after 40 years of throwing baitcasters I think they are really good.. I have 2 ..for now.

I love mine. The only real problem with it is I only have one.
