Introducing the new Shimano Citica I Series. A dependable classic that anglers have loved for years, the new Citica I takes durability and handling to the next level thanks to Shimano’s new HAGANE reel design concept. Created to withstand continual use and extreme abuse, HAGANE is an innovation of built-in toughness and durability, working alongside Shimano’s precision engineering.
The durability, smoothness and strength of the gearing (HAGANE Gear), efficient power transmission (X-SHIP) and the incredibly rigid reel body (HAGANE Body) are the heart of the new Citica I. The combination of Shimano¹s S3D spool and easy-to-manage SVS Infinity braking system also delivers smooth, long casting capabilities, so you can adjust to constantly changing conditions and always put your bait right where the fish live. Available in both a speedy 7.2:1 and versatile 6.3:1 gear ratio, the Shimano Citica I Series is the perfect choice for anglers looking for a tough and durable reel at a reasonable price.
