Your experience - Curado I vs E?
« on: March 21, 2015, 05:24:17 PM »

Just spooled up a new Curado I hg with 30lb PP super slick. Put it on the same rod as Curado e series and used the same casting weight for comparison. The E had 65 lb regular PP. Two brakes on on each. Curado I dialed down to 1 on external brake.

The e is 10 or so yards longer consistently than the I. I bought the I used off of bbc. The guy I bought it from said he had just serviced the bearings.

Besides re cleaning the bearings, any suggestions? I thought the I would be at least as long if not longer than the E???

Anyone else have experience with both that you can share?

Very disappointed right now in the I. I've got a 6:3 I to spool tomorrow with fluoro. Hopefully it's not the same issue.

Did you have the same spool tension on both

Yep.  Same spool tension and 2 brakes out on both.  I'll probably try cleaning and re oiling the bearings.  And cleaning/oiling the brake race to see if it helps.  I also have a new 200i 6:3.   I am going to put the spool I loaded today on that one and see how it feels.

10 yards seems like too big of a difference to be the bearings unless they are completely nasty...especially if they were just serviced correctly.

Have you tried popping only 1 internal weight and setting the external brake a bit higher?

I cleaned the reel and soaked the bearings in lacquer thinner on my wife's jewelry cleaner and everything is copacetic now.  Just got to get the ice off the lakes!
