Ideal for a variety of fishing applications, the Citica Baitcast Reel is built to last and features an ergonomic design with two-tone coloring for style, comfort, and reliable performance. HEG (High-Efficiency Gear) Developing features large drive and pinion gears for increased leverage and power. One-piece frame incorporates the setplate and one-piece stamped sideplate to eliminate flex in the drivetrain, providing high-speed retrieves, incredible amounts of torque, and reduced friction and drag, while maintaining a smooth, silent retrieve. Aluminum frame resists corrosion. Recessed reel foot allows the reel to sit low on the rod, making it easier to palm for better handling, casting, and pitching. Super Free Bearing Supported Pinion Gear System (SF) ensures the spool shaft and pinion gear remain in perfect alignment, eliminating all friction for farther casting with much less effort. Dartainium Drag material provides a wide range of drag settings and smooth performance. Lo-Mass drilled spool system with anodized spool and handle for comfortable handling. VBS (Variable Brake System) with reduced mass hub utilizes centrifugal force and a range of weight settings to aid in controlling the cast for a consistent spool speed that is easier to manage and takes advantage of the reel's maximum casting distance. Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing to eliminate backplay, providing the angler with instant hooksetting power. 1/8-turn easy-access attached sideplate provides unparalleled line control and long-distance casting. Disengaging Levelwind System prevents the line from being trapped under itself on the spool during rewind and interfering with subsequent casts. Lightweight graphite sideplates. QuickFire II Clutch Bar. Metal cast control knob. 4 Bearings: 3 Shielded Stainless Steel BB; 1 Roller Clutch Bearing.
