Anyone tricked out a Curado K

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Anyone tricked out a Curado K

Post by Kingpin » Thu May 17, 2018 11:26 am

I have posted on another thread about how happy I am with the new Curado K. Just wondering if there are many cool anodized parts, bearings, etc. available for it. Anyone with a couple of pics of their blinged out reel? Thanks, just looking for ideas. \:D/

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.
Must buy all jdm shimanos.....

Are there any anodized parts out there? I like to add a few things to each to help identify what reel is used for what. Also a little bling never hurt anyone. lol

I thought Tackle Trap sold the 96mm handle for the Curado K but I couldn't find it last time I was online. Was thinking I would rather have an HG Bantam and hoping that stock part was available. I am surprised more people wouldn't want that 96mm on a 6.2 for a stronger, torquey cranking reel.

Hopefully there will be a DIY spool for the reel coming out, seems it didn't take long for Aliexpress to have one available for the Tatula CT series. Maybe there is a chance they come out with a Curado K MGL and the spool will interchange...

Is it worth it to upgrade the line guide on this? I feel like maybe you can swap in a line guide to possibly increase casting distance?
