New Curado 70

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.

Do we think this copies off an existing body shape in an existing product line? Looks nice.

I wonder if is smaller than the 200 or does it just have a shallower spool.

Interesting. Any early indication of price point? Classic release, I'd assume?

10/150? That doesn't seem right.

looks like someone has my issue, a 105 becomes a 150. I think 105/10 is the spec on the Aldebaran if I remember correct

I believe it's supposed to be 10/105. It looks to be the new curado 50. I see aldebaran hints in that pic.
