Looks like they were painted with a brush. I'll give you $80 (shipped) for both. :)

Is the frame REALLY smaller than the 100D?  I can't imagine that and wonder if it's true?

Looks like both She Mano and Flooger are responding to the Revos,ABU is the leader in this current design and low profile.

All I have to compare it to is a Citica 100DSV.  I'll snap some side-by-side photos when I get a chance.

You got that right.....Abu has been smokin' the other reel companies since the Revo's came out. She-mano HAD to do something.....

Go fish it and tell us how it performs!

That's too beautiful of a reel to be so clean. Go get some fish stench on it!  :)

I'll wait until I see the reel in person, but my first thought is that I don't think I like the green at all.  I suppose it could just be the way the green is coming across on the computer.  Is it the same green as the old Curados.

Plus, I'm bitter b/c I purchased 3 "NEW" Curados this spring.  Bad decision.

Possibly best bang for the buck . . . but I go to my TDZ103 and Pixy more often than my STX . . . and I believe they were around before the Revo; not?  

I am glad the Shimano guys finally get to be excited about some eye candy.  I really wanted a Core but they don not make them for lefties.  :'(

The paint on this thing is sick.

Size-wise, I would compare it to the Revo Premier.  Very low profile, palms quite nicely.  The addition of the power paddles was quite welcome.  Some offset in the handle would have been nice, as would have bearing supported handles.  All in all, from a purely aesthetic perspective, it's a kickass reel.

Compared to the Citica 100DSV (same frame as Curado 100D), it is smaller and lighter.  Not the best photos though...

Actually the Core does come in a left hand version in 6.2:1 gear ratio.

Would like to get one, but I'm quite happy w/ the chronarch 101 that I have.  Also I'd rather have the 201E Curado when it comes out than the Core....which I don't like the price.

I guess this reel creates love/hate reactions in people, kinda like Scions and Crocs. I personally do not like the aesthetics of this reel, but I'm still going to purchase 3. It all comes down to performance. I am awaiting reviews from BR.

Btw ... Curado Green and Carrot Stick Orange. Interesting combo! :) It matches your avatar colors Burley!

Those are pretty good pics, Burley.  It does look lower-profiled than the Citica.  I'm interested in seen one in person.

I'd like to here how it casts light baits.

Sharp looking reels.  Have you handled the Curado D's?  I am just curious how hey feel compared to the D's.  I know there is a size difference but other than that do these feel like better reels?

I like the Curado D's and probably won't get one of these unless they are just that much better.  I will get a Citica though.
