Shimano Curado 100D/200 vs Quantum Tour Edition PT1160

Recommended Posts

First of all, new poster here.

Would like to add another baitcaster - possibly for cranks or other hard baits.  Considering etither a Curado or a Tour Edition.

Any preference among forum members for either of these two reels?

welcom aboard- I have owned both those reels- they are extremely different from each other. Oh I just saw that you included the 200 on the curado.  Well the 100D is a lot smaller than the 200 and the PT1160, its(100D) great for smaller baits- although I still own it and love it for multiple applications great reel.  I cant speak for the curado 200, have held one in a store felt big so I went with the 100D my dad has the 200 High speed version and loves it.  Now for the PT1160, I gotta be honest and gave that reel many chances but I had an opportunity to sell it so I did without hessitation.  Here's why; the reel will NOT cast lite baits period- anything over 1/2oz and wind resistant it will handle flirt with a light spinner bait like I have and you will be very frustrated- I'm not saying it can't be done but it is sure a process to do so- In my opinion there are better reels for the money-  If you know you are only throwing heavy traps or pitching large plastics you may consider although there are better reels out there.

Welcome aboard!

We have some Quantum fans, but not many. The brand has had

issues with dependabilty and quality control over the years. I'm a

Shimano fan, but many members are Daiwa, Abu Garcia and Pflueger

enthusiasts. There are a number of choices at your pricing point, but I

wouldn't be looking at Quantum.

I personally like Quantums. I have a Tour Edition and I love it. However, a lot of people on this forum don't like Quantums and I'm sure they have valid reasons. Personally, if I were in your shoes I would go with the Curado just because they have a better reputation for quality and durability than the Quantums do (I still like my Quantums though :)).

I purchased a Quantum Tour Edition when they first came out and I really liked this reel but I too had quality issues with this reel.  I ended up returning it.

At the price range you are looking at, I would recommend the Daiwa Zillion but if Curado and the T.E. are your only choices I would go with the Curado.
