What is the most effective "set up" for a Curado. 6.5 or 7.0 foot medium heavy rods? Use them for drop shot, buzzbaits, and topwater only? can you use them for making long casts with Crippled Herrings, Kastmasters, and Little Georges but use a slow retrieve considering they have a high gear ratio? I'm just a RookieBoy with some new toys. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! Matt

Delw, I think your fishing partner stated that your stuff is cluttering his boat. Just email me a pick up point where I can them off your hands. You probably caught that 10 pounder on a Gloomis and Stradic reel anyways!

Follow the recommended lure weight and line weight painted on the rod. You might be able to get away with a little lighter or heavier than what it says just don't try throwing a trout bait with it!

They come in three different speeds now. Pick the ratio that best suits your presentation. I use the slower speed reels for cranking and spinnerbaiting. It makes me SLOW down even when I can't. Later...
