Shimano's legendary prowess in DC technology continues with the addition of the all-new Curado DC 200, an expansion to the tournament-proven Curado family of low-profile reels. The Curado DC 200 provides anglers up to 40% more line capacity for added versatility and performance using a wide range of baits and techniques, especially those looking to leverage heavier line, larger lures or maximize casting performance. The I-DC4 unit provides anglers with four distinct settings to control how much braking the DC technology applies to the spool during the cast for ultimate control while minimizing backlashes when long-bombing casts or fishing in windy conditions. Fish smarter and leverage Shimano's premium DC technology within the all-new Curado 200 DC.
The MicroModule Gear technology creates a smooth retrieve by utilizing smaller teeth to increase the number of contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear.
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 increased support allows the gears to stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. X-Ship technology also eliminates the friction between the spool shaft and gear to further benefit anglers with enhanced casting performance and casting distance of lighter lures.
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing on the reel while fighting a fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power,
DC brake system perceives the changing spool speed and controls brake power with microcomputer, and provides the cast-performance of long distance and anti-backrash. I-DC4 brake can be set easily with 4 dial adjustment, covering to each line.
CI4 is a resin material reinforced with carbon fiber that is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material.The rigidity and durability have been greatly improved from original CI4 material while maintaining the lightness of the material, making it possible to reduce the size and weight of the reel.
S3D SPOOL leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. This creates an smooth feeling when casting.
S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the rotation of the bearing.
SUPER FREE SPOOL reduces friction on the spool shaft during the cast and enhances casting performance.
