When you look inside this revamped Curado, you’ll understand why it won ICAST’s award for best new freshwater reel. For starters, the SVS Infinity centrifugal braking system and internal gearing system feature MicroModule teeth found on reels that cost twice as much, while the multiple steel and carbon washers make the drag system exceptionally smooth. Plus, the reel is now 10 per cent smaller, but with the same line capacity.
