New Baitcast Reel???

Recommended Posts

That time of the year.

I NEED a New Baitcaster.  I am trying to decide between the Revo STX and the Curado 200E.

Open to opinions.

I have thrown the stx a couple of times and it is an alright reel, but i now own a curado 201 e7 and it can throw all lures better than the stx. This is only IMO. i know many people that like revos better and i got nothin against 'em. All i'm sayin is that the curado casts a little better than the STX IMO. Both are very comfortable to fish with, the curado is a tad lighter, and little more comfy for me(i have smaller hands), and the curado sits lower on my rods than the STX. I, personally, would go with the curado. But that's just me.

What do you throw now? the brake system on the shimano is more forgiving if you are not use to the mag brake system, but if you are, then I hear the STX is a outstanding reel. I have the SX and flat love it. I had to teach myself to go a little tighter on the on the spool (not the break) to reduce over run, but after that its pure butter. I have the E7 now(x-mas) and love the way it casts and the feel though it has yet to see water. whichever way you go you have made the right decision IMO.

Daiwa Zillion.  My new favorite baitcast reel.

Otherwise, Revo STX.

One is a Shimano, the other isn't.

Of the two stated....the Curado....but you can get a Plueger Patriarch which is probably my favorite reel I have for well under msrp on ebay.

Do you want to spend your time fishing or fiddling with a useless braking system?

Any of the ones listed will be great......make sure it doesn't say Shimano anywhere.
