Super Stopper

Super Stopper uses a one-way,
stainless steel roller bearing that
eliminates backplay. This provides
the angler with instant hooksetting
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.
Shimano Curado E  Model # CU301E Reel
Shimano Curado E Reels are ultra smooth and make
casting effortless. The Curado 200E size is smaller than
the previous Curado 100D but holds the same amount of
line as the previous 200DHSV. Even more, the 200E
reels are available in a 7.0:1 high speed or 5.0:1 power
version (right handed only). The little Shimano Curado
200E Reels are compact and lightweight but have the
heart and power of a larger baitcasting reel. The Curado
300E will give you the performance and power of a
larger reel such as the Calcutta, along with impressive
casting distance, comfort and the ability to fish larger
plugs and swimbaits than you normally would with a low
profile baitcaster.

Variable Brake System (VBS)

VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in
controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when
turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the
cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction
that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool
speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing
the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much
more consistent spool speed that is easier to manage
and takes advantage of the reel's maximum casting
distance. Settings range from zero weights turned on for
true freespool and up to 6 weights turned on for
extremely windy conditions and maximum cast control.
Greater comfort means better control. Shimano® has
enhanced the popular Curado® by downsizing the body,
upsizing the gearbox, and increasing the bearing count—
improvements which add up to a much smaller, lighter
reel that's also smooth, strong, and ergonomically
precise. High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) assures clean,
flex-free retrieves, even under heavy loads; a shielded S
A-RB® ball bearing at the reel's heart helps maintain
performance over the long haul. Rugged aluminum
frame with A7075 aluminum Magnumlite® spool; titanium
line guide; Super Free; pinion gear support system;
Variable Brake System (VBS®); Super Stopper II with
Assist Stopper; Dartainium® drag. 6+1 bearings.
HEG (High Efficiency Gearing) uses advanced
componentry and solid 1-piece frame and sideplate
construction to eliminate flex in the drivetrain, for
unmatched strength. Super Stopper is Shimano's
exclusive instant anti-reverse system, built with a
one-way roller bearing that eliminates all back-play in
the handle for instant hooksetting power. Super Free is
a bearing-supported pinion gear system that holds
clutch elements in precise alignment, virtually
eliminating friction on the spool shaft during the cast.
Quick Fire® II enables quick, easy casting. The clutch
bar disengages the spool, allowing the line to
free-spool, slowed only by the brake setting. The spool
re-engages quickly as the handle is turned. Fluidrive®
gearing means that your reel was manufactured with the
highest tolerances and utmost control in the gear-cutting
process, to ensure a smooth, powerful retrieve every
time. Line recovery in inches per handle turn.
