Which ones do yall prefer for inshore?
My understanding is that round one's have a little more drag tension to them, and can usually hold a little heavier line.

I personally like the low profile lighter and fits in the hand better for artifical lures. The drag as you described is totally false. I fish a Abu Garcia Revo STX high speed it has 24lbs of drag at max setting. I will stack it up against any round inshore bait caster. The round ones will usually hold more line still won't cast as good or far as a low profile. You simply have way too many ways to set cast controls and drag on a low profile reel. Hope this helps again its just my opinion except the drag that is a fact.

Thanks for the info. I am leaning towards the low pro. Academy has the Ambassador inshore for about 150 that looks and feels pretty nice.

Also fish the same reel, absolutely love it. My experience with the round baitcasters is a lot more trouble with back lash if you are going to be casting a lot. The braking systems on the low profiles just can't be beat.

Before you buy, see if you can find a Daiwa Lexa 300 to demo. Equal to the Curado 300 series and equally user friendly in a nice, tight package. Plenty of line capacity and more drag that you will ever need.

At $199.99, they are $50 less than the Curado 300. I also like the Revos, sweet casting and again, tough enough for whatever.
