Lightweight, strong, sensitive and affordable. Those are all great attributes for a bass fishing rod, but they don’t always go together. Usually, the affordable part is left out when the other three are mentioned — but that’s not the case with Shimano’s Curado casting rods.

With Nanoresin blanks, premium cork handles, rubberized, soft-to-the-touch Fuji reel seats, and a total of 10 guides (11 for the 8-foot model), the Curado series of rods is loaded with features that will keep you comfortably fishing for a fun day — or a long weekend tournament.

Available in a variety of sizes, power ranges and actions, anglers can find a Curado to meet their needs. And with a price tag under $160, they won’t break the bank. 

You can purchase them from TackleWarehouse, which is the only retailer currently carrying every size: http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Shimano_Curado_Casting_Rods/descpage-CDC.html
