Great transaction
I have purchased used casting rods from these folks over the years. So when I saw the great price on the Shimanon 200 HMG I did not hesitate. Arrived promptly and was as I described. As our water will be frozen for the next 5 months I will not have a try to test it until then...In summary , great transaction and good folks to deal with....Terry

Best reel on market under $200
Outstanding reel for the money. I have all of the Shimano high end reels and this Curado performs as well as any of them. Outstanding cast control. Recently bought two more from ALFC on sale to add to the 3 I already have. Great service!

Preordered this reel when they first came out , one word for the curado i would be rigid! It has a solid, machined feel . The X-ship is very smooth and it has Tremendous cranking power, great casting distance and a very easy braking system works real good on those windy days . And the thing about a shimano reel is it will still be performing great years . No other brand compares in out right value, IMO.

Love it so far
I bought this reel after I cast a friends old Curado E model and I immediately fell in love with it.
So far I am impressed, I took it in the yard after spooling it with some 14. lb flouro that I had on the shelf and began to set the controls with a 3/16 oz. sinker. After 4 cast it was pretty much dialed in and I liked it so much I bought a 2nd one last week.
I have not caught a fish with it yet, but I totally expect that same Shimano toughness that I love in the other 20+ Shimano reels that I own.

Own 3..... Highly recommend.
Great Shimano product! Fishing inland bays for specked trout and redfish. Spooled with Powerpro 30# With a 20# mono leader. Solid hookups, great drag and perfect size for palming.
Great pricing and service from American Legacy Fishing!

One of best on market
I probably have every CURADO model that Shimano has made and this one is even better if that is possible. Easy adjustment, great feel when palmed & worry free when in places you never want a breakdown.
Great price with this special.
