Shimano citica e thoughts
« on: February 04, 2018, 02:25:41 PM »

How does the citica e match up compared to the chronarch e? I have a few chronarch e's and I love them .  I have one of them on a frog rod that u do not use that much. I'm thinking of buying a used citica to throw on that rod to free up another one of my chronarch e's

Citica e seem easy and cheap to find used.  Chronarch e is another story. 

Thanks!

Its the same reel. Minus small things, like the brake pin assembly on the spool, the bushing on the drive shaft, and the color. All internals are the same. You can easily sawp in a set of 7 or 5 gears out of the 200Es to make it faster or slower. I personally like the color over the CH200E.

Awesome!  I'm guessing it has the same body size as well?  Feels the same in your hand ?

I have 2  that I've fished regularly since whenever they came out. One on a wiggle wart rod and one on a topwater rod.
 They have been flawless. Personally I can't tell much difference between them and the Curado.

The driveshaft bushing can be changed to a bearing really cheap.

Yep, Do that all the time for people. Adding bearings to certain areas and a quality lube job really makes the Citica shine.
