I've been fishing with one for the past 5 months and it has been everything that I was hoping it would be. The compact frame makes it even better to palm than the standard Curado 201i. I have mine on a Dobyns 745c full handle and the balance is excellent as my flipping and pitching setup. Do have to be mindful of the line capacity, but it's not an issue if you spool with braid. It is more expensive than the Curado 200i, but I looked around ebay to find a good deal on a new reel for $180 with free shipping from Japan. Hope this helps.
