$45 for Citica D?

Recommended Posts

I found a Citica D on craigslist for $45. Is it worth it should i pull the trigger? And its also NIB never used.

No brainer.  

Although it is NIB, it's still old and I would recommend a thorough cleaning and lube.

Great deal! A heavier but rock solid reel that will be great for resistance baits.

If you are not afraid of fishing with a 10 oz reel it´s a no brainer, rock solid built to last a lifetime.

That's the first BC reel I owned and would still recommend it for the price and ease of use. Especially for that price. It's heavy as a brick but solid.

 Go for it.  I sold mine last year for $90 and it was used, but in absolutely 100% perfect shape with ABEC 7 SS bearings and Carbontec drags.  I also tend to do a little internal polishing.  The guy in Texas who bought it was so happy he sent me a custom painted crankbailt.  That reel was made in Malaysia for those who think Shimano Malaysia is inferior.  Built like a tank.

Something weighing 10 ounces is considered heavy....LOL!....

Lou Ferrigno, report to the boat dock please. Co-angler needed immediately!

Modern day anglers are weight weenies Hootie, we old farts ( and don't look around cuz you are included in that stellar group of fellers ) grew up eating spinach so we developed the strenght to fish with such heavy item.

I agree.  Weight and size.  Some of these guys must have mighty small hands to gripe about the size and weight of a Tatula.

This is true.  I'm one of those guys dealing with Arthur and it's becoming a problem that I'm getting concerned about.  Just this year I have been noticing I've got a much weaker grip on my rod when I set.  Twice it fell out of my hand and the joint at the base of my left thumb hurts quite a bit at the end of a day now.  I have had pain for years but now it's becoming much worse.  Got a bad hip and both knees too but the pain is a worthy trade for a day on the water.

I don't disagree here at all.  In this case, smaller and lighter does help.  It is why I have TD-Z's and Fuego's.  But I still like using my HSTA's and them awful big framed Tatula's!

Guess I never considered any sort of disabilities. Sometimes we aren't aware of what the other guy might be dealing with. Absolutely, use whatever makes it possible to get out and fish, without pain and discomfort. A lot of my friends are amazed that at my age I have absolutely no physical restraints. I was talking to one of my fishing friends who has terrible back problems, which keeps him from being able to spend much time in a boat. He is only in his mid fifties, a mere kid to me. To often we take our blessings for granted. So, here's to all the light weight reels. "Fish em' if ya got em".

 I agree--Arthur has set up residence in my finger knuckles--between that and the fact that my eyes are not what they use to be makes tying a knot a challenge some days--but I am not complaining--I am still able to go fishing and have a great time and am grateful for that but find myself using a spinning rod and reel more and more for techniques that I use to use my baitcasters for

No shame in that!  Adapt and keep at it.  Any port in a storm, right?

I haven't really stopped to think about it yet but I would guess there are very very few presentations that can't be made with spinning gear.  A good majority of my fishing is t-rig worms and jigs and I already know I can be just as effective with spinning gear on those.  I have a 7 ft spinning rod stashed away that will easily handle slop fishing.  I know the time will come for me too.
