Curado 300

Has anyone held, or better yet, fished with one of the new Curado 300's? Does it feel significantly bigger than the 200? Is it as smooth as the smaller reels?

Thanks.

I have 6 of the original CU200 green reels and have been using them for almost 35 years

Held one today. I was hoping for something only a little bigger than the 200, but it is quite a bit bigger and heavier. Probably okay for fishing bait, but not for chunking lures all day.

the 200 is about as big as you want for lures, so the 300 is probably a little too big. might be a good live/dead bait redfish reel.

I haven’t picked one up but look around for a tranx 200. What do you want the 300 size for?

The 300 is a good reel paired with a big med-heavy action rod throwing 1/2 lb Muskie baits or large umbrella rigs in Alabama bass lakes, Or soaking bait at the end of the jetties for big bull reds - it’s not made for light action trout rods. At almost 11oz in weight, it will wear you out.
