The Shimano Curado 300EJ baitcaster reel has been a leader in the field for over ten years now and is set to continue it's winning ways. The iconic green Shimano Curado 300EJ with its superior drag and casting ability has made it a favourite amongst kiwi anglers chasing large snapper, blue cod, kahawai and kingfish with lures.

The frame and spool are made from aluminium while the side plates are made from light weight graphite to keep the reel light and ergonomic in the hand. The range also features 4 shielded A-RB bearings and an anodised spool, so it is manufactured to handle to salt and freshwater conditions.

The Shimano Curado 300EJ is simply the baitcaster of choice for anglers who are looking to land their next trophy fish.

These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is di...
VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much more consistent sp...
Super Stopper uses a one-way, stainless steel roller bearing that eliminates backplay. This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power.
Dartanium is a special drag material that provides a wider range of drag settings and the smoothest performance on the market.
