Citica 201D upgrades

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what upgrades are available for the citica. I'm more interested in performance rather than looks, so i'm thinking more along the lines of bearings, drag, etc. Also, i have heard that if you replace a bushing in the citica with a bearing, it essentially becomes a Curado because it then becomes "Super-free". Has anybody heard about this or actually done it, or know how?

Check out the Reel Mechanics site.  You can ge the bearings and drag washers from him or send your reel in and have it upgraded.

If you haven't worked on reels before you may not want to do it yourself.  I recently worked on an Ambassadeur 5600 and it was a good project but I'm sure a lp reel will be more difficlt.

Sitting here looking at the schematic for the 201D there are no bushings in it. It also has never been a SF (Super Free). For the reel to be a SF it has to have the busing or bearing behind the engagement pin in the spool shaft. The 201D doesn't have the bushing/bearing, or the proper size channel in the frame to hold the bushing/bearing..

Just my .02¢ from the bench...

Tight Lines!!!!
