Shimano curado or Pluger Patriach

after using both id go with the patriarch

Having owned both for a while now, I say Patriarch. They're both great reels, but the Patriarch just feels better to me.

Does the Patriarch cast worms good.

You'd have to be a little more specific. What kind of worms, and are you talking about weighted or weightless?

I haven't noticed a casting difference between the two with a 7" PowerWorm, 3/0 EWG, and 1/8 oz worm weight. I've never compared the two with a Senko, but since a 5" Senko weighs the same as the aforementioned 7" PowerWorm, 3/0 EWG, and 1/8 oz worm weight, there shouldn't be a difference.

My 200E7 is mounted on my dedicated spinnerbait rod. My Patriarch handles all of my soft plastics...well, all of the ones I toss with BC gear anyway.

Won't make any difference.  But Curado is gooder than Flooger.

To each his own, but I'd trade my Curado for a Patriarch 7.1 without a hesitation. It's a great reel, but I prefer the Pflueger.

I see  A LOT of used reels....they fall short in the durability dept.

patriarch HANDS DOWN!!  Better cast control, smoother and just plain out a better reel.  IMO, it blows the curado away.  I don't have much experience with the curado, cause I bought one last year and had it a month before I decided it couldn't compete with the patriarch and sold it and bought another patriarch.  Take good care of it and it will last a long time.

I own 5 SHIMANO DC reels and 1 Curado reel and the PLUGER PATRIACH BLOWS AWAYS the Curado, I have 4 Patriach reels and they are as smooth and will cast the same as my Daiwa Steez  !!!!!!

Well man reels are just all anyones opinion. And you can see that i am a shimano fisherman. but i got a few curado and i really like em. i have fished with a pluger president before and let me tell u it was a fine reel. and the patriarc is probably better than th pres. but i recomend the curado. the thing about it it comes with 2 sets of brakes so you can adjust to watever u wanna throw.

Patriarch.  All aluminum construction.  Dual braking.

I've owned them for 2 years now with zero complaints. Best reel I've ever thrown and that includes the opportunities to use Shimano reels.
