Shimano DC Reels

What are everyone's thoughts on Shimano DC reels? How well do they hold up wade fishing? I currently use Lew's and don't have any issues casting, but thought about giving one of these a shot.

I bought one when they first came out, and my son soon claimed it. It's held up great, and he's not easy on anything. A Lews lite was the reel he replaced.

I started field testing one last fall. It has been wading about 25 days. No maintenance. Still running like a champ.

I have an SLX DC and a buddy has the Curado DC. We picked them up specifically for wade fishing. Love them so far, but its only been about 4 months.

Is the Curado worth the extra money over the SLX?

Yeah it is, but believe me, if you get careless in the wind, it will backlash.
