I've got a couple curados that have seen better days. I've heard shimano is really good at fixing or replacing but have been too lazy to box them up and send them in. Has anybody gone that route? Or should I just try to clean em up myself? How many parts can I have left over when I put them back together and still call it a success?

Brandon.

It cost 7/8 bucks a reel, worth the money, will be like a new reel when you get them back.

Curados

Ive sent in lower grage Shamano reels and asked then to fix them and bill me. Every time they just sent me a new one of equal value for free. I'd try it.

Del,

If I remember right. It takes 7-10 days. It's totally worth it. The folks at Shimano are incredible!

Del, I checked into this deal a few months ago. It was around $10 per reel to clean and lube. Any additional parts that need to be replaced you get the bill for. I personally do all my own maintenance on them and have had any major problems. Their cust service is top notch though. I had a cracked spool on a reel over 4 years old and they sent me a new one for no charge. Just had to ship back the old one to them.

Thanks for all the input, I'm finally going to send them in. I just wanted to know who to blame for bad advice if anything went wrong.

Did you ever get any ABEC 7 bearings to put into your curados? I bought some of the Quantum Hot Sauce oil and grease when I bought my kickboat. Supposed to be some good stuff. I am going to give it a try next time I have to service my reels. Course don't know when that will be since I haven't used them for awhile.

I talked to Robert at curado this am.

to get curados renewed they cost

$12 per reel plus parts
they dont have abec7 bearings but will put in abec 5's for 15 per bearing.
He also said that the abec 5's will add alot of noise.
The bearings in the curados are not rated and he said he would guess a abec rating of 2 or 3 .

its takes 1-2 weeks to get them done.
There phone Number is 1-877-577-0600
Ship reels to:
One Holland Drive
Irvine, Ca. 92618
Attn: reel Repair


Make sure you include a note with what you want done and a telephone number and address.
