Anyone experienced with this particular reel from Shimano. What are your likes/dislikes? I am currently looking to possibly trade my Lews BB1 Pro for one theses. Nothing wrong with the Lews just want to try this reel. Do you feel this would be a mistake on my part the Lews is a fantastic reel

I have a 200e6 that I use primarily for spinnerbaits. I bought it used, but had it completely gone through and its a very capable set up. I have it paired with a 6'9 H ex fast rod that I built.

Have a couple of the old Citica Es. Great reels. Lots of capability and power.

Definitely a classic. Do not pass it up! Nearly identical to the Curado 200E, except for color and drag material. Easy to work on and even if parts should run out, you will still be able to easily find donor reels for parts, including the JDM Scorpion 1500xt.

Citicas curados chronarchs.........Built like tanks hold their retail value even after 25 years.

Plenty on ebay in great shape, be prepared to bust out your wallet. You’ll probably have a hard time getting one under $200. Maybe $175-180 if you’re lucky. They definitely held their value.
