That thing is sexy. Probably my favorite reel line of all time.

Im just looking at TackleT... right now and this reel sounds like a big improvement over the D. These reels and going to have a smaller profile, weigh less, more bearings all while still being cheaper than the D! For some reason they did away with the 6:1 gear ratios in the curado 200 size.

The new Citica has the 6:1 ratio but nothing else. It does have many new improvements and is staying at the current price.

One of the perks of being on the Shimano Pro-Staff. You get to tease us all with the newest and coolest gear. Lucky! What rod are you going to mate it up to?

Looks nice. Can't wait to see the specs. I love my old green curados. Have been babying them for a few years and wondering what I will replace them with someday. The Curado D's are too heavy for my tastes. This is encouraging news form shimano.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think they put retail on that puppy at $179.99... I could be wrong though.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
