Shimano Reels



Shimano Curado 70 Reels

For 25 years, the Shimano Curado has been a benchmark in low profile bait casting reel performance and durability. In 2016 Shimano builds on this legacy with the all new Curado 70 casting reel. This new addition to the Curado family delivers unparalleled castability, industry leading durability and precision control in a compact and rigid reel. The new Shimano Curado 70 Reels are smaller spooled reels designed to handle lighter line and lures than the 200I series. With all of the advancements in reel technology geared toward easier casting or lighter lures, the 70 size Curado just makes sense. Shimano's SVS Infinity Brake System and S3D (stable spool design) are largely responsible for this by applying consistent, precise force to the reel brakes reducing the chance of backlash and allowing lighter lures to be cast further with less effort.

Another key feature of the Curado 70 Reels is Shimano's X Ship technology that braces the drag to make smoother lure retrieval that lasts for many years of use. Furthermore, the compact Hagane body is essential for the rigidity of the reel which enables anglers reeling motions to be focused directly to the fish instead of wasted on the reel itself.

We offer the Shimano Curado 70 Reels in four models: CU70HG (RH 7.2:1), CU71HG (LH 7.2:1), CU70XG (RH 8.2:1), CU71XG (LH 8.2:1). Line Capacity: 10lb/105yd.

Curado 70 Reel Features:

  • Compact Hagane body provides excellent rigidity and in-hand comfort.
  • X-SHIP technology delivers ultimate gear durability and smoothness
  • Lightweight low inertia spool excels at casting small to medium size lures
  • Precision cast control with enhanced SVS Infinity brake system
  • Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D) reduces vibration to provide smooth casting performance

Curado 70 Series Reel Technology:

SVS Infinity

Shimano’s newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force on the new Curado 70 series baitcasting reels. With brake weights that use ‘inner friction’ against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed especially when using lighter lures, plus the external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits. Combined with X-Ship Technology, anglers will experience precision cast control.


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 is eliminated, enhancing the casting performance with lighter lures, and allowing for longer casts.

Hagane Body

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler’s actions directly into cranking power. It’s efficiency through strength.

Solid reel May 18, 2016
Reviewer: J from Northwest  
Bought the 8 gear model, pretty fast retrieve, great for flipping 3/8 oz, havent tried heavier.  Smooth retrieve and the brakes are taking me a little getting used to, seem a little different than my Metanium and Chronarch ci4.  Solid reel

Reviewer: jeff smith from kaufman, TX United States  
I love throwing shakey heads on baitcasting equipment and this real is awesome for that. I use 10lb line on this real and it will cast these small baits a mile. GREAT REEL

Reviewer: Alex Stroud from Concord,Ca  
Great reel for flipping and punching. Fits comfortably in your hand and is extremely light. Perfect with a Powell 795 and 806.
