Based on the reputable Curado 200 I, the 201K XG is a left-handed reel that brings all the benefits of a low-profile design to the table. An aluminium frame and CI4+ body combination makes for a lightweight and durable reel, with the 201K XG designed to be used for freshwater fishing and salty conditions both.
Low-profile baitcasting reels need to be durable, and it's long been known in the industry that Curado provides affordable products that efficiently do their job without breaking anytime soon. Always a plus!
There's some fancy technology available on this reel which we love. X-ship technology makes for a powerful and smooth retrieve from start to finish, and the SVS Infinity braking system makes spool control simple and brake force precise with lures of any weight sand size.
Our opinion: This is an affordable and rugged all-rounder for baitcasting. We appreciate that it can handle larger lures effectively, and it's always a plus in our eyes to have an easily handled lure that's good for fishing where fast response is important. You can handle pike and similarly large fish with this one, and its ease of use makes it a practical choice for an angler serious about getting into the hobby or profession in earnest.
