Okay, so I gotta ask. What in the world is a Citirado?  I'm guessing maybe a Citica Curado hybrid?

Parts from here, parts from there to bring a new creation to life...............you're gonna have to change your screen name to Dr. Frankenstein.  lo  ~beer~

Exactly. Since they are nearly identical internally, its gonna be the Curado frame and parts, Citica sideplates, add a levelwind bearing, Curado handle with a few other combinations to bring them together coloration wise.

Should be cool, but man I couldn't treat and E model that way. It's my favorite since they started "updating" every year...

I think it looks waaaaay better with the gunmetal sideplates. And some would kill to have gold accents, and here they are available factory.

So here it is. 2 HawgTech spool bearings, levelwind bearing upgrade, 2 bearings per knob. Brings it to 9 bearings plus 1 roller clutch bearing. Tightened up, it's a solid feel, and very connected feeling. Especially with braid.

They are out there for Shimanos, but bring big dollars. I will eventually get a gold cast control cap and drag star.

Ok. Few parts showed up. Levelwind cap, and drag star. Now I'm waiting on the cast control cap. That I couldn't source from Japan, it had to come from China or Taiwan, I cant remember. Lol.
