Whick model are you looking at? The 1500 is comparable in size to a CU200 and the 1000 is similar to a 100. I have been thinking of getting a CU101 or scorpion 1001 to throw lighter baits with. Both reels are "super-free". The big advantage to me is the external/dual cast control. The big disadvantage would be getting parts if needed. There are a lot of discussions over at http://www.wmi.org/bassfish/ in the rods&reels discussion.
Jason, I have 5 or 6 of them if that tells you anything. I love 'em. I also have 2 of the curado 100's and I've had problems with both. The curado 100's I have are not super free, so maybe they've improved it since I bought.
The previus post makes a good point about parts, but I had found a source and a service shop that was willing to work on Scorpions. Check out www.profishing.net for the best prices I was able to find.
I also use the Shimano Biomaster spinning reels. They are basically a shallow spooled stradic with magnesium frame. Super smooth and light.
I have 1 501 scorpion & also have a curado 201 both SF i like the scorpion better. I'm going to order a scorpion quickcast which is the same as a Casatic. Parts were my biggest draw back but not now. I dont know if you can throw a left hand retrive but your welcome to try mine at the bassoff if you would like. I think you will like them.
