Difference between chronarch d and curado e

Recommended Posts

I've been taking a look at these two reels. What are the differences between the two, besides the price difference.  I've handle both reel and the cheaper price curado seems to have a smoother and more free handle. I'd appricate any info.  Thanks. ;)

The Chonarch will be smoother and more refined. Is it worth $100+ ? ,only you can make that decision.

Good choice Hammer , I have 4 previous generation Chronarch's ...3-100A's and a 100BPV ,but also have 7 Curado's..I like em all but you can tell the difference in smoothness and refinement.I hav'nt had the chance to check out the new D series Chronarchs but would assume they are a notch above the previous generation.

I have both and there is really no wrong choice here. If you want smoother and more refinement go with the chronarch. If you want a good all around work horse reel go with the curado. Both can be had at below retail just be patient.  8-)

thanks for the responses.  im certain that they're both great reels.  it's just at the store the chronarchs handle, when clicked over, didn't spend as long as the curado.  i guess, i just wanted to justify the $100 difference...and didn't want to pay more for something that was similar.

Chronarchs are true gems at a relatively affordable price, Curados are best value.
