      I threw it for 6 hrs both with and against the wind without any problems. Can't ask for better performance from any reel at any price.

      Oops! Sorry guys. That Curado is on my Quantum Dance Class Classic. It was a Phleuger on the Berkley. Less reel by performs excellently with that Rod & line ...more combo.

      Threw SSR5 on med 7' spinning rod w Mitchell 401 (antique but still my best reel after 50 yrs of use) strung w 6# braid and no leader. Double surgeon knot; easy ...more to tie, holds well, strong & reliable.
