Help Me Dietz! (Shimano reel ???)

Question

TurnUpTheFishing

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!

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
