Monofilament line for Curado 201 E5

Recommended Posts

What is the largest monofilament line that can be put on a Curado 201 E5 and still have good castability and be easily managed.  I would like to go 20-25# range.  What are the most reliable monofilament  lines in your opinions?  Thanks for all the input!!!!

I love berkley trilene big game mono.  I think it's better if you use the curado 301E for heavy mono in the 20-25lb range.  But I think that 10-17lb line would be perfect for the curado.  I have the 200E7 that I use for weightless and texas rigged plastics and I spooled it with 14lb seaguar invizx and it works great for me.

sounds like you might want to throw big swimbaits on this reel , if that's the case , you bought the wrong reel  :;) you should of got a curado 300 or if you want a smaller framed low-profile baitcaster , you should of got a REVO winch or a REVO inshore . you won't get much 25 lb. mono or co-poly on that curado 200 , maybe 60-65 yards .....

haha, funny you mention that as I was just looking at the 300 model and I think I am getting that next.  I have another reel I have spooled up for my 8 inch huddlestons with Seaguars 25# flouro on it.  The problem I have now is that when these bigger bass (7-8+) get buried in the weeds I have alot of problems getting them out.  It seems that the fish are more weary of the powerpro I am using so I am switching back to mono.  I really thought about flourocarbon but I am afraid that if I backlash, looking at some of the kinks that get in there I think it could compromise the integrity of the line????  I don't know maybe someone here could tell me otherwise?  I was thinking more along the lines of 20# big game or 25# seeing the difference in diameter between the two is only .001 in size. Maybe that makes a big difference, I don't know. Appreciate all the help.

That Curado will handle anything from 10lb to 15lb mono great. But, 25lb mono? No way. You shouldn't need that high of a line unless you're pitchin n flippin. If you really do need that high of a line, go with 30lb or 40lb braid.

My favorite line that works good for all-around fishing is Stren.

But for braid, go with PowerPro.
