All other reels should just give up...

Recommended Posts

The Curado 200E7 is just that d**n good.

TheBeast and I were fishing identical rods (Carrot LTX 6'9MH), identical baits (3/8 oz.).  I was using 14 lb. XPS flouro, he was using 12 lb. PLine CXX.

The only real difference were the reels.  I was using a 200E7, he a Revo STX.

The difference?  About 15 yards.

The 200E7 is that full of win.  Chuck Norris wishes he was as good as this reel.  This reel makes Darth Vader cower in the corner.

Man, great post!

I can hardly imagine how much better it could be with the right rod and line!   ;)

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I refuse to believe that. You might as well just mail me one of those Curado's and let me see for myself. You know I'm not a Shimano fan so there's no chance I'll want to keep it.

Plus, there is more to a reel than just how far it can cast. We're talking brakes, weight, smoothness, spools, drags, etc....I dont see that new Curado having a better drag than any of my Revo's. And I'd much rather have a silky smooth drag than I would being able to throw just a little further (if in fact I can throw it farther than my Revo's, which I doubt).   ;)

Don't be such a doubter.  I threw my Curado 100B SF way over a hundred feet from my front porch to the trash can.  Made it in, too.  I could never do that with a Revo.  :)

Chuck Norris uses Liberto Pixy. Darth Vader uses...yep you guessed it, a Steez.

We don't need no stinkin' Shimanos. ;):)

Chuck Norris can LOOK at a fish and it will be caught. He does'nt even need a reel or line or hook or really pretty much any bait.

If it really cast further than a Revo its further than I can set the hook on anyways.

45 ft is quite a difference really.  Hell, most of my casts don't go much farther than that on any given day.  Not that I can't, just don't need to.  But, in a direct comparison just to see, thats quite a difference.

The reels are good, but a Steez 100H or even the Zillion HLC will kick it's butt...... Just like Bruce Lee kicked Chuck Norris' butt.  ;D

For the record, Bruce Lee only beat Chuck Norris on stage.  Chuck Norris, consistent with all the hype, really is a bad man.

And while the Steez may beat a Curado, it costs 2x more.  And thats all.

Yep, I can see Chuck using a reel named 'Pixy'.

You know, I'd never thought about it, but what does that say about Jimzee?
