Citica reel handle movement question???

Recommended Posts

I have noticed on my new Citica that the reel handle has some play in it.  Grabbing the reel handle, and pulling away and pushing towards the actual reel bpdy I can feel and see a very small amount of give in and out.  Just wondered if this is of course normal, or should I make the drive back to Cabelas ;)

The tension knob is loose, when you tighten the tesnion knob the sideplay on the spool and handle disappears.

That is the normal tolerance of the bushing in the crank shaft assembly

The in & out play on the crank shaft has nothing to do with the cast control setting. The crank shaft is connected to the set plate and the play is from the tolerance of the bushing that is employed on the base of it.

Tight Lines!!!
