Super Stopper

Super Stopper uses a one-way,
stainless steel roller bearing that
eliminates backplay. This provides
the angler with instant hooksetting
Escape Hatch

By flipping a switch, the sideplate swivels
downward, giving the angler quick access to adjust
the VBS weights. The switch is located in a position
that is easy to use, yet remains out of the way to
prevent accidental opening. The sideplate is smooth
for comfort when palming the reel.
Get more out of fishing with the Shimano Curado I
Casting Reel. For greater gear strength and easy
handle rotation, Curado incorporates an X-Ship
large-diameter drive gear plus improved bearing
support. The SVS Infinity Brake System offers you
endless brake settings. Adjust the angle of the brake
collar to increase or decrease braking without having to
open the side body. Shimano's Stable Spool Design
(S3D) features a balanced and uniform
thin-wall-aluminum construction throughout the spool,
reducing spool vibration and delivering a smooth feel
when casting and retrieving the lure. Super Free®
pinion gear system offers ball-bearing support that
ensures spool shaft and pinion gear are in perfect
alignment. Power AL reel housing is constructed of
ultrastrong, durable aluminum. Escape Hatch® is
activated by flipping a switch, swiiveling the sideplate
downward for quick access to the SVS weights. Offset
handle design shifts paddles 3mm closer to the reel's
center of gravity, delivering more stability and power
when retrieving under heavy load. Reliable Super
Stopper® anti-reverse with no backplay, even in cold or
wet weather. The Curado enlists carbon drag washers
for a smooth, consistent and sturdy drag system. The
center clutch design grants smoother and easier clutch
engagement under load.
The Shimano Curado I Baitcasting Reels are best
used for both saltwater and freshwater, and are
offered in multiple gear ratios. These baitcasting reels
are built with the latest in Shimano fishing reel
Super Free (SF)

The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear
system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on
the spool shaft during the cast. In standard
baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed
down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag
on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the
length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is
supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is
disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept
in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on
the spool shaft for increased freespool.
SVS Infinity Brake System

Shimano's newest innovation in brake system
technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage,
consistent spool control and brake force. With
brake weights that use inner friction against the
raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool
speed for precision casting especially when using
lighter lures. The external adjustment knob
provides for quick, precise adjustments for either
the conditions or when you switch baits.

A-RB bearings are stainless steel ball
bearings that have been through the
A-RB treatment process which makes
them at least 10 times more corrosion
resistant than standard stainless steel
ball bearings.

•A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) are made
of Stainless Steel that has been
through the A-RB process.
• At least 10 times more corrosion
resistant than standard Stainless
Steel ball bearings.
• Easy Maintenance-no shield design
allows for easy flushing of debris and
easy lubrication.
•Increased Bearing Speed-no shield
design and lighter viscosity lubrication
reduce friction and allow the bearing
to spin faster and longer.

X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By
supporting the pinion gear on both ends with
bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise
alignment with the drive gear. This means the
gears will stay in the same position under the
heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction
between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated.
This will enhance the casting performance of the
reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
