Just try to backlash this thing. You can’t do it. Shimano stuck a microcomputer into the new Curado 150DC series reels that monitors spool speed 1,000 times per second (you read that right) and applies just the right amount of braking to prevent overrun. Max distance, braid/mono mode, fluorocarbon mode, skipping mode: Just set it and forget it. $249.99. Best New Freshwater Reel award at the ICAST show.
