With an appealing design, tip-to-butt Fuji components, and a high-modulus carbon blank, the Curado performed like a much pricier rod. For an Editor’s Choice, it’s a steal. The team found the lightweight blank and quality cork handle to be incredibly ergonomic, assisting in long, precision casts. It consistently hit eight of 10 accuracy targets, the best performance overall. The team also felt it fit our hands the best. The rubberized Fuji reel seat is soft and easy to grip when palming the reel, giving complete control during the retrieve.
