Excellent reels. 1 step below a Curado which are awesome. They have less bearings which brings the price down but they do have an alminum frame. You can buy the Curado bearings from Shimano's parts dept and make it a Curado though. <br /><br />THere's one on Ebay right now for $60. Better hurry though!<br /><br /> http://cgi.ebay.com/Shimano-Citica-...220612374QQcategoryZ36146QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem <br /><br /><br />spots
I just my combo in the mail yesterday,it has the cica reel and an 7'extreame rod i thought it was a good deal.i felt the reel seems a little tighter than the curados.we'll see when i put some line on it.
