Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

I can’t wait. Just .2 oz heavier than current curado k.
Should be a great reel.

Re: Anyone tricked out a Curado K

You can add two bearings per knob and a bearing to the worm gear and it makes for a super reel for the money. Other than that I haven't added anything.

Re: Aldebaran 50 mgl to the US, xg model maybe?

I have picked up two ald 30's and spooled the line off my 50's directly on them and the held all but 5 yards. I was worried about capacity but they are nearly identical. That's with 6/20 power pro braid. They cast amazing!!

Re: New Ald 30mgl

Had a few days off, been putting it to the test. These things cast amazing. I have been jerk bait fishing in some pretty steady strong wind.
These cast at least 25% better than the last version.
Now if the fish would turn on in my part of the world :(

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

The knobs on the bantam are the same as the chronarch mgl- the curado K knobs are larger.

Re: New Ald 30mgl

I use three of them usually for lighter stuff.
I use one on an nrx 802 6/20 power pro for jerkbaits
another on an nrx 842 with 2/10 power pro for anything finesse
another on an nrx 852 with 6/20 power pro for light shaky head 3/16 and some 1/4

New Ald 30mgl

Picked up a new mgl 30 from japan. I was worried about line capacity being down. To my surprise I took the line directly off of one of my fully spooled 50's and it held all but about 5 yards of it??? Have my second on the way. These seem a bit smoother, not sure if they have changed the gearing. The...

Re: E6X MBR903c

It is one of my favorites. I have considered picking it up in a conquest. I use it for 1/2 -3/4 swimbaits. It loads up and casts great. I have considered adding a couple of inches to the rear grip.

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Ok, two days on the water.. It feels very similar, almost identical to the conquest in smoothness during retrieve. (keep in mind I added three bearings to it) I have the HG which comes with the 84mm handle. I came home and ordered the 90mm from a curado k (same handle) Casts great, didn't try any sm...

Re: Loomis Noob, looking for GLX help

Id consider these 843 853 844 I'd recommend feeling of them first tho, I feel like the reel seat is a bit farther forward on the glx making it fish an inch or so shorter than they actually are. Also I think the power rating is a bit heavier than they are. For ex a med hvy may be a bit lighter than o...

Re: New Loomis GLX rods creak when you shake them?

Yes, this is normal when they are fresh. I had one a few years back, sent it back, they sent me another and it did the same thing. I called and they said that when they are fresh they will do this and with use they will stop. Fish them and it will go away. They sad it was where the epoxy for the eye...

Re: Aldebaran MGL

Japan sites are only listing it as standard and hg. It looks like it only lost about 10 yards of line capacity. I'll prob sell one of my ald's soon and pick one up to try.

Re: CURADO K VS I VS CHRONARCH CI4

The curado K is a great reel, look around and get it for a deal. You can add 4 bearings to the handle and one to the worm gear making it a 12 bearing reel. It casts great and is super smooth. If you are comparing it to the origianl chronarch ci4 I would go with the curado. If you are talking about t...

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

I noticed I had to push it just a bit to get it out, not difficult at all- but I did notice that I couldn’t just tilt the reel and give it a light jolt for it to fall out like my others.

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Finally got mine in. I added one bearing to each knob and a bearing to the worm gear. It feels super solid. Its smaller than the chronarch but just by a smidge. Its mainly just shorter. The 84mm on the hg seems right at home on this reel. (I am a fan of the 90mm). The spool access side plate is very...
