I have some Curado 200 DHSV reels  and like them really well only negative is weight 9.2 oz I believe. How do they compare to the Metanium MGL

If weight isn't an issue the Curado is bulletproof and very smooth. It's almost 3 oz. heavier than the Met and quite a bit bulkier. 

if you pick up a Met you might not go back. Some guys do complain that the aluminum gears lose their smoothness with time. Some are even swapping them out for a brass Curado K gearset. The DHSV's will last forever with care. Again, it's a matter of how comfortable you are now with the curados. They both are great casters.

Thanks they are on NXS so they are still pretty light and balance well

I think that those Curado D's are great spinnerbait/chatterbait/ square bill/ lipless crank reels.   I have 2 and mine cast 17 & 20 lb mono very well and they hold a lot of line.   I think that for "feel" baits like jigs & worms they are a little heavy, I like a Curado 50 or a Chronarch 50 for fishing "feel" baits.
