If you love throwing extremely lightweight lures then you are going to love the Shimano Curado BFS Baitcasting Reels! BFS is extremely popular in Japan and the guys who love JDM stuff have been importing gear for several years. Shimano recognizes the size of the American BFS audience and has delivered their first BFS reel for the USA. The Curado BFS has a super lightweight shallow spool that helps you cast those really lightweight lures. Combined with the Finesse Tune Brake, which moves the brake from the spool to the off hand sideplate. This reduces spool inertia and allows it to spin more freely. You can fine tune the brake using the dial on the sideplate. The main gear is constructed of strong yet lightweight aluminum to keep the weight of the reel down. There are eight ball bearings and the engineers at Shimano have worked their magic to make the Curado BFS very smooth! They even included a clicky drag! The double paddle handle is ergonomic and very comfortable. If you throw light stuff in freshwater, you are going to love fishing a Shimano Curado BFS Baitcasting Reel! Go catch some bass!
Shimano Curado BFS Baitcasting Reels are available in righty and lefty. There is only one model and it has an 8.2:1 gear ratio. Great reel!
