Lets us know how the faint Atari deep range and sensitivity to catch and even seize the eater of low activity in the
Large snapper cunning to great advantage and also produce a blissful sea bream lava game sound a light hit after the existing drug
works. I'm still interested in one of these or the Scorpion 70.

I don't know about all that but im going to use mine for spinnerbaits and shallow to mid cranks. With 5.8 micro module gears it should be effortlessly smooth.

Made in Malaysia as will all the future Curado 70 variants. Its smooth but I want to do some cranking and see how smooth it is under load.

That handle is slick, it's got a knight rider vibe to it. First shimano handle I've actually liked. How long is it?

Looking forward to hearing your feedback. I want those brass micro gears!
