Aldebaran BFS or Upgraded CH50E?

At some point this spring, I think I'd like to get a new setup and really treat myself. I love using weightless plastics with a baitcaster, so I'm thinking about getting a finesse setup. So, I was wondering what folks thought about the Shimano Aldebaran BFS without upgrades versus either a CU50E or ...

Re: Curado I

I have no problems with the Crurado G series. The two I have are great for the price point. It's a shame they were so maligned because of their name and color scheme. But I'm certainly excited for the new reels coming out. Hoping the Citica gets an update as well.

Re: What color will the new curado be

I thought the new Curado is the HG and not the I? Since there are multiple releases next month and more throughout the year (Icast?), it's possible the Chronarch E could be going away as well. I wouldn't be surprised if they just phased it out since the Chronarch Ci4+ seems to be doing so well and t...

Re: What color will the new curado be

I know it's only a $20 difference, but I hope you are right. Some folks are insisting it will be $200.

Will be interesting to see what they do with the Citica and Chronarch E series this year as well.

Re: new curado?

Is there going to be a press/info release before the 21st? Or is that and product availability going to be at or around the same time? Now we just need the price. The reel looks like the Ci4+ frame and handle side plate with the Metanium brake side plate. But the pic is only one angle, so it could j...

Re: What color will the new curado be

Looks fantastic. I'm fine with the color. Disappointed it's not green, but as long as it's not some wonky two-tone. Oh, and as long as it performs as well as I'm assuming it will... SOLD! I'd prefer it be $180, but I guess we shall see.

Thanks for the pic!

Re: chronarch CI4+ & 13metanium

Performance-wise, is the Metanium a lot better than the Chronarch CI4+? I picked up a Chronarch and love it, so now I'm curious about the Metanium.

Re: Please review Chronarch C14 Plus vs 200E

It's worth the extra money. The 200E series reels are great, no question there, and I was skeptical that I would ever notice much difference above their price point in terms of actual performance benefit. Weight, cosmetics and such, sure--but actual performance? I was skeptical. But I was able to pi...

Re: Well.....

Metanium XG, seems pretty clear. But I think he did say reelS, plural. I'm hoping they offer a 50 sized reel in a higher gear ratio than the Chronarch. Actually, a Chronarch 50e with that option would be great. Anything above that price level is out of my range.

Re: new curado?

Bantam1 already said they're not updating the Curado line. I don't think they're as unpopular as many internet forum readers may think. I have two and they are great reels. That said, seems like a Metanium and maybe Antares for the US market? I'd like to see a 50 sized reel offered around the $150 p...
