Re: Shimano Question

Recommended Posts

This is the reel I learned on.  For the first few months, I fished plastics (Mainly senkos) exclusively.  I had no problem throwing them.  It's a great little reel for the money (I got it at BPS combined with the BPS extreme 7' MH).  you'll be happy

i have the citica 200D (didnt want the DSV cuz of the over sized handles and it didnt have certain features that i wanted) and i fish everything on it. about 75% of my fishing is soft plastics, mainly senkos. this reel performs great! i love it so much. really beats the hell out of the procaster that i had been throwing.

I have one Citica 200D and five  Citica 100 Ds.  The 200 was the first Shimano that I have ever used.  I love it but like the 100d better because it is lighter.  I use my 200 on my carolina rig rod and have had it for over a year and a half.  It has never let me down.

If you like a lighter, smaller reel that gives up nothing for it, try the Citica 100DSV.  I love those things, and they seem to cast a bit better than the 200s.

Well Gentelman, I went to Sportsman Warehouse today and purchased the Citica 200DSV.  And all I can say is WOW.  When I was growing up my Grandfather taught me to use baitcasters with an ambasador 5500, and the round baitcasters were all I have been using since.  Once I got this citica set up right for my soft plastics, I dont even have to feather the spool that much.  I am completely sold on Shimano reels now and will be going back next week to purchase another one.  Thanks for all the input

Congrats on the new reel, enjoy.  :)

ive got an ambassaduer 5500 and that thing is no comparasion to the citica. if you can set the cast control knob right, then i can only have 1-2 brake weights set and cast a senko 60+ feet with out even having to touch the spool.
