Backlashes are the main reason that many novice anglers choose not to use baitcasting reels — and even seasoned bass anglers still feel the wrath of it on windy days and when casting light lures. It’s unfortunately and ironically all a part of fishing with the industry’s most-advanced reels. Until now! 

The Curado DC adds a digital circuit board to one of Shimano’s most-recognizable baitcasting reels, and though it sounds gimicky, it’s truly a revolution. From lure weight to casting force to wind speed, the onboard computer takes everything into account and adjusts the spool’s rate of delivery to allow anglers to cast the lightest of lures without worry. And drop those fears of casting into the wind. This reel has you covered.

The Curado DC, which won Best Freshwater Reel at ICAST 2018, is available in left and right-hand models, and comes in a variety of gear ratios. The reel retails for $249.99.
