Shimano Citica 200G6 Baitcasting Reel

This is a review of the Shimano Citia Reel.

The Shimano Citica 200C6’s cast control is superb allowing for optimum distance and accuracy of aim. Works well with all types lures including the light weighs.

Being a smaller reel it allows for better thumb access to the spool for better accuracy.

Drag performance is smooth and consistent.

But don’t listen to me, listen to Bad Poncho Outdoors review of the Citica on YouTube:

Basic Recap of YouTube review:

Fair pricing.

Aluminum frame with graphite side plates.

Sturdy feeling.

Handles big fish excellent.  Salmon, Pike, Walleye, etc.

1/4 turn side plate system.

Standard stop brake assist.

Flat paddles offer superb power grip and fit your fingers perfectly.

Takes abuse very well.

Drag adjustment matches the case making for a beautiful reel.

Low mass spool.

Less momentum meaning less backlash.

Shimano Curado E Reel 300EJ Review

This is a Shimano Curado E Reel Review.

The crank and drag gears are stainless steel making the drag super smooth.  Casting is as far as your skills allow you to cast, which in my bragging rights, is a mile!  It easily handles all lure types even those huge Double 10’s!

It has 7 bearings which make for smooth casting and a strong retrieve.  The magnetic breaks are easy to adjust and set, handy in times of sudden wind.  It’s a strong fast reel and even for a newbie, with a little practice, backlash is not a problem.  This is a strong fast reel with good crank.
