What are the differences in models? 100DSV, 200D, 200DPV, 200DSV?

Thoughts on what ones are better for certain things.

Gear ratio, line retrieve, bearings and capacity. If you want a smaller frame and a lighter reel, the CI100DSV is the reel. Otherwise, I think the CI200DPV is the ticket.

i learned the answer to this question from reelmechanic:

200D-standard of the line, with HEG

200DSV-D series, Salt Version. it does not have a ported spool (wiffle spool) which is to prevent saltwater from reaching the bearings.

200DPV-D series Power Version. larger handles, HEG, more spool capacity.

100DSV-same as 200DSV, only it is on a smaller lighter frame.

i have pretty small hands so i like the 100DSV best. i also have a 200D and it is pretty big for me, but i still like it.

citica is a great reel by the way! ;D

Nice that is what I wanted to read. Thanks Dave.

Wrestling between the 100dsv and the 200DPV.

I have smaller hands as well.

Mostly going to use my baitcasters for jigs, traps, and spinnerbaits. So trying to find which one I want is becoming difficult. Especially when looking at the two models. Different size and different gearing... :-/

It will be going on this rod....   Falcon LowRider XG Cast 6'6" MH/Fast  "The Herm special".

Thinking about just returning that BPS 29.99 reel that I ordered when it comes in.   So confused...  ;D

if you have small hands like me, then the 100DSV would definitley be your choice. that reel is soooooo easy for me to palm and its so comfortable. also, its only 7.5 or so ounces as opposed to the 9.9 or so ounces of the 200DPV.

the 200DPV, espescially being the power version, is a BIG reel. and the HEG on it makes it pretty heavy and bulky.

in reality, any citica will do what you want it to (jigs, traps, sb's). the rod is what might cause some difficulty. normally, but not always, jigs are fished on a separte rod from trebel hook lures and spinnerbaits. BUT, if you have used all three of those lures on your rod before with no troubles then you are OK.

as for the BPS $30 reel, keep it, fish it, decide if you like it. if you do like it then keept it around as a "beater" that it wont upset you if something happens to it (scratches, chips in the finish, etc). if you dont like it, sell it, keept it as a "guest reel" to let people who fish with you use, or give it to a kid who will enjoy it.

First off I would like to say that my wife is amazing!!!

After talking with Dave in PM and having him send me pictures of some citicas next to a rod, I have decided on the 100dsv version.

Now back to the wife. She actually said that I could pick it up RIGHT NOW. With income taxes coming in soon she said why not. I think she may be sick.  ;D But I'm not going to argue. Was going to wait.

So props to my wife and thank you to everyone including RW for helping me out with my baitcasting questions.

I've got smaller hands, so the 100 fits PERFECT in my hands. Something to keep in mind.

Big reason why I picked the 100.  ;D

The thing that scares me???? I just called my wife and asked her where she was when she said that I could get it. She is at the mall.  :'(

Probably a pretty good bet that she is buying stuff to remodel the living room.  :;)

If Dave says to get it and your wife agrees, then go get it.

The economy needs your help.

And the Bait Monkey will be very happy.

you will be very satisfyed with your 100DSV...TRUST ME!!!

its a dream to cast with compared to a few other reels that ive tried.

once you have it set up correctly with a certain bait, casting is so easy. i rarely ever have to use my thumb to control the spool. i can totally remove my thumb from the spool and the lure will keep on flyin' and no line problems.

let us know how you like it when you finally get it.
