Shimano again refreshed the Curado lineup in 2011 bringing us the Curado G series.  The reels form is based on the Caenan.  The G series has a reduced weight from the E series but also features fewer bearings.  The frame is aluminum while the side plates are graphite.  The drag star is now graphite instead of aluminum.  The series has expanded with a 6.5:1 mid ratio in both left and right retrieve while the 5.5:1 low speed retrieve is still relegated to only right-handed retrieve.
