2008 Shimano Curado 200E7

Recommended Posts

There were two pics leaked of the New E series Curado, but one of them has been earased!  You can still see the lefty version, which is a mirror of the righty.  It is touted as being smaller and lighter than the 100D, with 200D line capacity and HEG gearing.

Somebody on Tackle Tour found an online retailer that  has already listed the new E series models on their website (they show 'out of stock' obviously until they are officially released).  You get to see the different models and prices though.

Package Quantity: 1 Model: CU200E7 $139.99 Out of Stock

Package Quantity: 1 Model: CU201E7 $148.99 Out of Stock

Package Quantity: 1 Model: CU200E5 $139.99 Out of Stock

Package Quantity: 1 Model: CU300E $194.99 Out of Stock

Package Quantity: 1 Model: CU301E $206.99 Out of Stock

Package Quantity: 1 Model: CI200E $92.99 Out of Stock

Package Quantity: 1 Model: CI201E $98.99 Out of Stock

It's a good looking reel.  Looks VERY open on top.

I'd be ticked if I bought a Curado D for $200 and then they release a new model that is much improved for $139. I guess we should all be happy.

Anyone have a ballpark on when they will be available?

Improved?  Is a shift of production to Maylaysia worth $60?

Granted it is peace of mind to know a reel is made in Japan where craftsmanship is very high, but I will pass judgement when I fish with one.  I don't own a Curado D...are D models made in Japan?

I know the 100's are made in Japan, don't own a 200 Curado.

I don't see a $60 decrease in price as an improvement.  Corners will be cut.

Looks like there's no crankin' reel for us southpaws.

I have a 201DPV I bought in Feb. when they had the $50 rebate (which I still haven't seen) that I will most likely be selling and replacing with a Revo Winch.  I have only used this reel about a dozen times and is in new condition.

I think it's a sharp-looking reel, including the green color.    8-)  I'll wait until I can read a test or hear some info from real-world experiences with the reel before I pass judgment on it.  Until then, it's a Shimano, so I'm excited.

Oops, I forgot the Curado D 100/200 are presently doing it.

Then why are they getting rid of them?  ;)

Do you happen to know the IPT for the Winch?  It isn't up on Abu's website yet.

Abu will be updating their website this summer.  I sent them an email a few weeks ago about some other issues invovling their website and that is what they told me.

I suspect the new CuradoE7 will knock your socks off! It will probably be comparable to the CH50MG, one of the finest reels ever made. Competition is great, we all benefit and the newest equipment will be better AND cheaper!

Is this a great country, or what?

8-)
