True Or False... (Citica E)

True or False...

You can replace the knobs on the stock handle of the Citica E?

True. They are reverse threaded. So if its a RH reel, you turn right to loosen them and opposite for a LH reel.

From what I remember, you can replace the knobs but you can't add bearings if that is important to you.

Why couldn't you add bearings if the knobs are removable? I thought the knobs were riveted on this reel handle. I know they were removable on the Curado E though.

From what I remember, the screw that holds the knob on is actually a slotted nut that acts as a bushing and I think the bottom of the knob shaft is kinda flared out so that it won't take a bearing. The Calcutta 100B is this way to.

 

If the Curado 200E is the same as the Scorpion 1500 series, you can not add a second bearing because the Scorpion 1500 series also has the slotted nut but it did come with 1 useless cannot tell it's even there bearing.

This is a Calcutta 100B handle. Removable knobs but you can't add bearings. IIRC, The Citica 200E is the same way. It has been a while since I owned one so you may be right about the knobs being riveted on.

Got ya. I'm pretty sure the Citica is riveted if memory serves me correct

Knobs are replaceable. No bearings though.

Knobs are replaceable but again no bearings but you could just get a new handle with bearings (might not be worth the cost though).

I had 2 Citica 200E's and I put Hawgtech Handles on them with Power Grip II knobs. I think it was worth it and they looked sharp.
