took a step into the "dark side"

Recommended Posts

After Bantam1 took care of me regarding a problem with a Cumara rod, I've been looking for a reel to pair it with. I tried every reel I had, Revo STX, Energy PT, super-tuned Millionaire, Pfleuger Summit, Johnny Morris, and only one, a TD Feugo, really matched up nicely with the Cumara.

The problem is the Feugos match up perfectly with two Setyr rods, so that's where the are.

Went into BPS Sunday, and bought a Curado E7. That reel, on a 6'8"MXF Cumara rod, is a perfect T-rig / light jig setup.

I hope I didn't just start something.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Just picked up the Curado 200 E7 a couple of weeks ago.

Matched it up with a BCR854 (Forest Green on Green).

Jumped off a cliff and spooled up Power Pro 50/12 for

color coordination (black/green). Best of all, the STX is

no longer part of my jig rig!

Gary,

For those of us that are already on the "dark side" we prefer to call it partly cloudy...  as in- the fishing is better this way.   :o  Welcome home, brother.   ;)

I have one. ;D   Bought the gears for a Citica and replaced them in one of my Curados.  Now if they would just make a 201E5 I would be very happy.

Later, ;)

So what are you going to do when you hook a bg one and don't have the STX on!?!  ;)

Don't know, but I guess I'll depend on that Curado.

No matter how it works out, I'll post it, promise!

I think it is way over priced, but it is a good reel for beginners.

i dis-agree. i think its the best value there is for the $150 price range. the Revo S is the only thing that competes with the reel.
