Shimano Citica models

Recommended Posts

Forgive the simple question, but I'm looking at purchasing a citica and the differences in the models are not making sense to me.

You've got the:

200D which seems to be the basic model with the low mass drilled spool system?

201D leftie version of the 200

200DPV which is the low geared/slow retrieve version

100DSV light version of the 200dsv?

200DSV what's this one?

I know I don't want the 201D or the 200DPV, but what's the difference in the other three.  Tried asking at BPS and asked someone who didn't know anything about them so I thought I would try here.

Thanks!

I believe the DSV models have the deeper spools for increased line capacity....the 100 being the smaller version.

You may be right!  I just realized that the line ratings on the 200 DSV and the 200 D are not using the same test line.  The 200D gives 8/180 and the 200DSV is 10/180.  I didn't notice the difference before this.

Thanks

if i were you i'd go with the 200D. its got the best features.

its got all the goodies EXCEPT the oversized handles. i didnt want huge handles cuz i thought theyd get in the way, so the 200D would be perfect...well it was i love my 200D.

 I have had the 200D since they first came out and like it more now than when I first started using it. Would recommend it to anyone :o...

Any of the above! I've got 200D's and DSV's and had a couple of 100 DSV's and you can't go wrong with any of 'em. The DSV is actually the salt water version based on what I've been told. The spool being solid prevents water from the line getting into the reel.
