2006 brought big news from Shimano, a refresh of the Curado lineup.  The 200D Series sports a high and low-speed ratio and a lower profile on the rod than the previous generation.  The reel still features Shimanos standard Super Free and VBS systems while also adding an Aluminum Magnumlite spool, Dartanium drag, HEG, and a Quickfire II Clutch Bar Casting System.
