Got My Citica Back!

Recommended Posts

Well after tinkering with my Citica and being an idiot I couldn't get the thumb release to work again :'(

So I asked on here and "fishfordollars" said he would fix it up for me. So I sent it off to him and was with him a very short time and he returned it to me and it works great now! It is smooth as can be and he oiled it for me as well.

*Oh and he didn't charge me a thing!*

fishfordollars is a great guy to deal with and does some good work. Just thought I'd let everyone know 8-)

Thanks Again Jack!!

I am glad he got it figured out for you.  He is one of the people that make this forum different from the rest.

I just remember how it was when I tore into my first few baitcasters. Ended up having to take them to the shop to have them reassembled. Don't mind helping anyone out. I don't do it for a living, just trying to help a few learn how to work on them.

Glad you are happy with it. If you need to go into it let me know and I will walk you through the reassemble over the phone. They are actually very easy to work on as long as everything goes back together correctly. If not they can be a nightmare.

I experienced that same issue I believe my first time with the Citica I upgraded. I was lucky in hat I had multiples of the reel. So I can always have another to examine if I'm having a issue. I always have to remind myself to slow down think it out and don't get frustrated. It's when I'm frustrated and rush stuff that I make a mistake. Personally I'd encourage any avid angler to learn to break down there reel and do the maintenance that it needs. I think you learn about the quality of the reels parts and you more apt to keep it n better shape then if you just paid a guy to do it Case and point one of my buddy hasn't ever broken down a reel and his Citica hadn't seen a drop of oil since he bought it probably. I encouraged him to at least drop some oil on that thing once every few trips. Even a quality reel will break down with out some attention paid to it.
