Curado 50E

Just picked up a few and was wondering besides changing the spool bearings, is there any other upgrades performance wise that I can add? like a bearing where a bushing is? Thanks for your time guys.

I drove about 35 min to Shimano in Irvine and took the reel to the front counter and was treated amazingly well =D> . I spoke with a repair person who was very nice and he answered all m...

Re: New shimano lineup question

I believe its just easier... having the almost identical body style incorporated with a few different little schematics. I was hoping for a little better change among the Chronarch but it just recieved a color lift and power knobs. Im Glad it is made in Japan though thats a huge plus. Maybe it may f...
