Help Me Dietz! (Shimano reel ???)

5 posts in this topic

I own several Citicas already and like everything but the size. I thought about getting one of the Curado 100dsv but started comparing it to the new Citica 100dsv. My question is What do I get for the extra $80 I would spend on a Curado over the Citica? On paper they appear to be the same reel. Well, the Curado has the extra bearing and Septon handle but is that worth $80?

Thanks for any help.

Ok, you are correct that they are very similar. They will have different handles I believe as you stated. The frames are made of a different metal. The Curado is alum, the Citica is an alloy of some sort, the Curado frame would be better then, and heavier.. yet they do other things to actually make it lighter, so its .1 oz lighter. The Curado also has a Dartainium drag which is more consistant and smooth.

So, for $80 you get slightly lighter,stronger frame, 1 more ball bearing, and a better drag.

I hope this helps you out. If you have more questions feel free to ask, Otherwise I will be working at the Cabelas in Rogers on March 16-17-18.

Thanks for the help Deitz. Its appreciated. Though Ive been looking on the Shimano website and it appears that both models have the dartanium drag systems. With them being so similair I guess im leaning towards the Citica but part of me still wants to get that Curado.

oopsy, your right, the Citica does have the Dartanium drag as well.. so your really looking at .1oz lighter and a stronger frame. Thats it!

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
