Dear Shimano???

Shimano, do you plan on coming out with either updated Cardiff and Corvalus round reels within the next year or two, or a newer design replacement for those reels in the next year or two?

I know that the Abu 6500 series reels increased their Drags to 15lbs. and made other enhancements. And I'm just asking to see if you guys plan on upgrading the Cardiff and Corvalus reels as well soon. Or if you plan on replacing them?

Thankyou kindly, and have a good one!

    I got the same response when I asked them if they were either upgrading the Curado 300 or replacing it. No response. Then a month later POOF! The Tranx 300/400 is unveiled.

    So maybe something's on the horizon.

    I never thought about it that way, but yeah I guess the Tranx 300 fits the bill for a Curado 300 upgrade while they sell what old-style curados they have overstocked.

    The new Curado K is awesome! The best one they ever made! Shimano brought their high end braking down to the Curado level and have now made having the best affordable.

    A lot of the new Abu's are no longer made in Sweden. Try Korea. Quality has nosedived. I would not own any of the new abu's except for maybe the Revo's, but with a Shimano out there why?
