Offering a big line capacity with a small profile, the Shimano Citica Baitcast Reel is one of the most popular on the market today. It features a recessed reel foot, which provides for a low and tight fit to the rod. This gives the angler more control and makes fishing all the more comfortable.

Using the patented Super Free system helps eliminate the nuisance of friction and the Shimano Citica Baitcast Reel uses Dartainium Drag, which gives some of the smoothest retrieve available.

This right retrieve reel also offers a Variable Brake System with reduced mass hub, ceramic line guides and Quick Fire II clutch bar which allows an angler to excel at one-hand casting. To round this reel out, the company added high-efficiency gearing, bringing the line in with less cranks and much faster.

Major Features:

  • Super Free System
  • Recessed Reel Foot
  • Dartainium Drag
  • Quick Fire II Clutch Bar
  • Variable Brake System

3 + 1 bearings. Right retrieve. 10 lbs./155 yds. line capacity. 6.3:1 gear ratio.

    I found the Shimano Citica Baitcast Reel was durable and reliable, provided easy casting, offered a smooth drag system and smooth reeling. I find it best for jigging, ocean casting and river fishing.
