citica DSV

Recommended Posts

hey whats the DSV on the citica models mean?
 

   D        S           V

D Series Saltwater Version

You'll notice there is no drilled spool on the DSV, this is because the saltwater will enter the drilled spool, and into the bearing packs and crank assembly if used.

which is why even on a freshwater reel i tape over the holes.
I agree 100% dodgeguy. IMPO no matter the manufacturer, ported, drilled, whatever you want to call them, spools with holes can be detrimental to spool support bearing packs, and internal crank assembles in fresh and saltwater systems.

I thought it stood for Deep Spool Version, since it has the deep spool with more line capacity than the "regular" one.

Just got off the phone with Shimano, before anything starts here.

Sorry folks:

DPV = D series Power Version

DSV= D series Salt Version   :)

DPV:

D Series reel, PV the Power Version (special power paddles for reel heavy crank'in also used on the DSV)  

The_Jake,

It does say "Deep Spool Version" in the add for the citca....

The ad for the citica uses the term deep spool version because it has a larger capacity spool but it has nothing to do with the designators.  :)

Tight Lines All!!!!

dsaavedra,

I would say yes as long as it doesn't have a ported or drilled spool. But that doesn't mean you don't have to maintain the reel every time you do use it in a salty situation.
