Rumor? Curado K/Met. Drive gear Swap?

Postby Kurt L » Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:41 pm

So any truth to the rumor that the Metanium 13/MGL and Curado K Drive gears might interchange?

Thanks, Kurt

Apparently they are looking that way. Call Spanky at The Tackle Trap and he may be able to help you more with that.

That is great news, I'll be counting the days for the lefties to show up! and a great reason to buy a new Curado only having to keep one type of gears in hand for two different reels is a big win too.

Thanks, Kurt

So in the other thread, it was said only the drive gear is compatible. Which is the real story?

I haven't read the other thread, but I do know that the conversion kit available at The Tackle Trap fits and works. That's the real story!

Hi Gary,

I’m not seeing the LH kits when I look on your site. Are they out of stock already? Hoping for to pick up a couple.

The LH gears are not yet available from Shimano. Once they are, we will get them up on the site, and I or Gary will post in this thread.
