Citica or President

Recommended Posts

Now that i've solved my spinning reel quandry by picking up a stradic this morning i have to turn my focus to a new baitcaster.  I have a Fenwick HMX 7' MH Fast casting rod with no reel and I have narrowed it down to either the Shimano Citica or the Pflueger President.

Thoughts?  Which would you get?

I would probably be leaning towards the one labeled "SHIMANO."

I knew you would say that!!!  

I've only been a member of this board for a short time but it hasn't taken me long to figure out you have quite an allegiance to Shimano reels...but as always - thanks for the feedback.

x3 for the citica!!!

dude you gotta go w/ shimano. i bought a citica as my first "quality" baitcast setup, much like you are buying now, and i LOVED it! it was just so awesome. i bought another one (100 size...my first was 200 size) and im gonna put the 100 on my new crankbait rod.

Get both, use them for a while, sell the one you hate.

Gotta respect a man who knows how to reason.   :o

Shimano hands down.  Although I have not fished the President, I can't find a reason why to leave the citica.  If you have heard of the old curado's then you should know that the citica d's are pretty much like the them.  They are the new workhorses of the Shimano line in my mind.

Hey Check the Trion out it is 30 bucks cheaper and more than enough reel for me.

What?   :o

I've fished with a couple Presidents.  If my hands weren't so messed up I could handle the taller profile of that reel and I'd probably be fishing with all Presidents right now.  I really like the reel and the price is right.  Nothing against the Citica other than it's a heavy reel unless you get the 100 version which holds less line than either version of the Presidents.
