Was the Curado D and E the only ones with aluminum side pla

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

D = composite palm cover / aluminum frame / aluminum handle cover

E = composite palm cover / aluminum frame / composite handle cover

The E series Curado and the I series have graphite side plates. I own both. The frame is aluminum. Tackle Tour did a review on both where they talk about it.

The "D", especially the DPV, was the best Curado made to date.
