Re: Expride A stock

It's due to factory times and lead times to us for shipping. Japan is primary market for these rods so as you can imagine they get the majority of the product. I wish we could have a warehouse full of product but in this day and age it just doesn't work that way. We only have so much space between t...

Yes the 610M is what I would consider a true Medium powered rod.

Re: Engetsu Reels?

The closest reel will be the Curado 70, but there are many differences between those two reels.

Re: Expride A stock

The 72MH will be in at the end of this month. The 73XH will be available in November. The demand has gone up for the rods which makes it harder due to the lead time to get them quickly enough to cover demand.

Re: Problems with my Curado K

Did you purchase them all at the same time or near the same time? We made a running change pretty quickly, then changed it again.

We will get the first shipment at the end of this month, but it is a small amount of reels. The larger shipments will come in Nov-Dec.

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

On both ends of the pinion gear. One is under the cast control knob, and the other you can sorta see when you remove the spool.

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

Get a q-tip and rip off some of the cotton from one end. Apply a little alcohol and push it through the pinion gear. This will remove any oil, grease or dirt from there. This is something we recommend on all of our reels.

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

Yes. You will have to be mindful of keeping the reel clean and well maintained. The X-Ship has two bearings which require maintenance when using in saltwater. Just keep that in mind.

Re: G Loomis Demo Warranty

Over the years G.Loomis has made demo rods for other purposes. The handles were burned with the word DEMO on the handle. Those rods are not covered under warranty. The rods being sold by dealers should not be marked as these were either rep samples or rods used for demonstration purposes. They will ...

Re: Shimano SLX

It does not have MicroModule gearing and it does not have X-Ship. It does have Super Free so only one bearing supporting the pinion gear.

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

The braking curves are based on a full spool of line. I suppose any reel will be easier to cast with less line on the spool due to reduced overall rotating mass.
