For that price range I would give a hard look at the new Shimano Citica

I agree, the new Citca is an awesome, slim reel that I believe is almost identical to the curado other than bearings and the big fat handle. You could also take a look at the older silver curados which I believe are clearanced for right around your price range at most places.

Hiya -

Like Deitz said, the Citica is a good option. So is the Revo S from Abu Garcia. You'll do well with either one.

Cheers,

The same can be done looking for the prior model Citicas, you could come close to two of last year's Citicas around your price range. Really nice reels, a little on the heavy side, but essentially the old green Curados of a few years gone by, which are hard to argue with as far as performance and quality.

I added a Revo S to the mix last year, despite being mostly a Shimano guy, and I did like the reel a lot.

I would go with a Revo or a Quantum. But if u get a revo, get the one with the magnetic drag, not the pin system.

Team Daiwa all the way for me. Take a look at the TD Advantage HST 153. It has super tuned bearings and spool shafts and will launch even the smallest baits. I have some team daiwa reels that I have had for 15+ years and they are still going strong with a little cleaning and care each year.
