Rated 5 out of 5 by Stevemutt great pick up for my arsenal
The reel is great for skipping jigs under docks due to the syntrifical braking system. Ive been trying to do it with magnetic brakes and have had a hard time. This reel makes it easier. Also casts very smooth and im getting longer casts with this reel.

I use the Curado and Chronarch, but just go back to the Citica. The Citica is on 4 of 7 rods I carry. I just bought 3 new Citicas because I haven't bought new reels in some time. I'll take my older Citicas and set them up for guest rods when I take friends out who don't normally bass fish.

After lots of research I decided to go with the Citica over the Curado, Daiwa Inshore, and Abu Revo. I've caught Redfish, big Cuda's, Snook, Specks, Lemon Sharks, Peacocks and it's held up well. Smooth retrieving, very easily adjustable breaks and the lure break is very easy to finetune even without the clicking of most bait casters at this price range.
Highly recommend it for anyone on a budget who is also looking for quality.

Sure, not as smooth or nearly as light as my Core, but for the price, this is Shimano's best. Solid, predictable casting with excellent distance. Don't let the fact it's not made in Japan anymore scare you away, this reel is up to Shimano's usual high standards.
