my citica e for shakey heading

Recommended Posts

got to try my new citica e and the mojo today.  i have it rigged for shakey  headn.  i must say the mojo is great, but i dont think my citica e is for light lining 1/4 or under.  i had to set all six brakes just so the thing wouldnt backlash.  i am using 100% berkley flouro and seemed good.

so i am at a decision point.  either i go back to spinning or i buy a curado e.  what do you think?

Hmmm. I'm going to have to go give 1/4oz a shot on mine. I took it out and cast 3/8 just fine but I haven't tried 1/4oz yet.

If you can't get it to cast 1/4oz like you want it to, then I would replace it with a spinning rod/reel. I think spinning is the best bet for 1/4 and lower.

I had the same problem with my Curado. It would cast the weight ok but after awhile of taking up loose line the spool would get loops and start backlashing. I use a PTi 4000 series for lightweight jigs and shakey heads now.

Get a Shimano MG. It is an amzing reel for light stuff. I remember last Spring was launching 1/8oz hakey heads under windy conditions with no problems.
