Which Shimano reel

Recommended Posts

I have been on a hiatus the past year and haven't wet a hiook in a while.  Getting back situated now and starting it back up.  I have three Curados, the ones before they jacked up the price.  My question now is, before I go spend all the money, which Shimano is comparable to the $99 Curado, the Cruxis or Citica.  I see Cab and BPS both have rebates for all three, just would like some perspective from people who have used these two.  Thanks

The Citica.

+1 8-)

BTW,

Shimano didn't exactly "jack" the price, the new Curado is a COMPLETELY different reel.

I agree on the Citica, I don't like the fact that the Cruxis has a plastic drag star, and casr control cap. But the old green Curado every one loves had these parts made from plastic too.

I like the curado better, but the Citica is a very good reel, best for the price when it was at $120, now that' it's at $90 it's a steal.

I like this reel a lot.  I think that it's a great reel for it's price point.

Here is a review of the Citica.  Since this review, Shimano has released a 100 size reel.  I think that the article states that there isn't.

Kinf of what I was expecting.  I love my Curados, dont have the money to throw at a couple new ones yet.  Starting turkey hunting this season too, there is a little mouse that keeps taking money out of my wallet for that...haha..... Looks like the Citica is the way to go.  Preciate all the info.
