Citica 100 drag plate upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway I can upgrade the drag plates on my Citica so I can get more drag out of it?

You could upgrade to carbontex, but you right now have 10lb max drags.  :(

Man, I fish for 30+ lb stripers and don't have your problem.

I wish I were catching the fish you are.

Maybe you need a saltwater reel.

Which Citica 100 are you upgrading?

If it is the CI 100DSV I carry them here... in the Extreme (X-CT200) & Carbontex (CT200)

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!!

10lb is not enough.

I would check your reel with a scale...  because if 10 really isn't enough, you should be breaking rods. (assuming we are talking bass fishing rods) I'd bet that you just aren't getting the rated drag out of the reel.

Are you for cereal? I've caught musky on drag way lighter than that in heavy weeds?

I think I understand were he is coming from.

The west coast lakes all have big bull (double digit) Florida strain LMB's. He's probably hunting double digits all day and feels he needs a lot of drag....

I know I did when I was living in San Deigo up above Hodges....

FROG, You can do the drag upgrades, but impo they aren't going to give you much more than a couple pounds over the max anyway.. I always placed my thumb on the spool to help when I needed more.

Just my .02¢ from the bench.....

The bass I am catching are on steroids! I think they are related to Barry Bonds, lol. But I use my citica on my flipping stick, so I am pulling bass out of heavy cover and I like pulling them out as fast as possible. I don't have it cranked down all the way. Will cranking the drag all the way down damage anything?

And yes Reel Mechanic, my lake has Florida Strain in it, and I am always hunting down double digits, lol.

I've had fish pull my drag out of my Curado 100 a  few times now, with the drag tightened ALL THE WAY down.

Earlier this week, I had a fish pull drag on my Revo STX with it tightened down pretty tight.

I would worry about the rod more than the reel........
