Shimano Citica 201E and Abu Revo STX?

Recommended Posts

Sadly, I'm at that age where friends begin to expire more and more frequently. Not only am I left with a void that can never be filled, I also end up acquiring my buddies fishing and shooting gear. I'm a gear junkie, but so was a friend I lost back in May. His wife gave me over half of his fishing gear and although I was grateful, I just can't keep the majority of it. I'll keep two of the rods I made for him to help keep his memory in hand so to speak, but he was a lefty and although I've tried on many occasions to adapt to left handed baitcasters, it's never going to happen. I intend to sell them and give the money to his care giver.

 

I have an idea of the value of the Abu STX, but am clueless about the Citica 201E. It's in excellent condition, but I don't think it's an upper end reel.  I don't want to under price any of these reels, but I do need them to sell.  Any ideas, recommendations as to a reasonable price to put on these?

The Citica 200 series is the little brother of the Curado 200 series and many parts are interchangeable.  I sold my last Citica 200 for $80 last year with the like new box and the reel instructions.  In all fairness, I had installed a crank shaft bearing, ABEC 7 spool bearings and carbon tec drags.  The reel was in like new condition without a mark on it. Being in excellent condition I would guess $60 minimum is a fair price.  The Citica 200's are really nice reels.

Thanks OtP. I figured somewhere around half of what it sold for new and $60 comes in just under that.

My personal practice is that I’ll pay 60% of msrp for a second hand item if it’s in like new condition. Some popular items may command higher. The E reels have a loyal following.

I have the Citica 201E and it is a nice reel. It sort of reminds me of the old B series Curados . But as far as a used value (like stated above) $50-$60 would be a fair price.
