CITICA G7 Baitcast

The Shimano Citica series has now been released in a stylish silver and gun metal grey finish with a multitude of advanced features. These include a die cast aluminium frame and a Super Free spool for extra-long and accurate casting. This coupled with VBS and a quick access side-plate means that you are able to adjust your casting length to suit most distances.

This reel comes with three shielded A-RB bearings and a hyper gear, which makes for smooth efficient winding with serious torque where it counts.

When fished with Lucanus, Bottomships and soft bait lures this reel will handle trophy snapper effortlessly.

These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is di...
VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much more consistent sp...
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.

Shimano New Zealand provides a TEN YEAR WARRANTY on all Shimano fishing reels, against defects in materials and/or faulty workmanship.
