Super Stopper

Super Stopper uses a one-way,
stainless steel roller bearing that
eliminates backplay. This provides
the angler with instant hooksetting
Super Free (SF)

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 disengaged the
pinion gear and spool shaft are kept
in precise alignment. The result is
zero friction on the spool shaft for
increased freespool.

A-RB bearings are stainless steel ball
bearings that have been through the
A-RB treatment process which makes
them at least 10 times more corrosion
resistant than standard stainless steel
ball bearings.

•A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) are made
of Stainless Steel that has been
through the A-RB process.
• At least 10 times more corrosion
resistant than standard Stainless
Steel ball bearings.
• Easy Maintenance-no shield design
allows for easy flushing of debris and
easy lubrication.
•Increased Bearing Speed-no shield
design and lighter viscosity lubrication
reduce friction and allow the bearing
to spin faster and longer.
Shimano Citica G  Model # CI200G6 Reel
Variable Brake System (VBS)

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 spool speed that is easier to manage and
takes advantage of the reel's maximum casting distance.
Settings range from zero weights turned on for true
freespool and up to 6 weights turned on for extremely
windy conditions and maximum cast control.
HEG (High Efficiency Gearing) uses advanced
componentry and solid 1-piece frame and sideplate
construction to eliminate flex in the drivetrain, for
unmatched strength. Super Stopper is Shimano's
exclusive instant anti-reverse system, built with a one-way
roller bearing that eliminates all back-play in the handle
for instant hooksetting power. Super Free is a
bearing-supported pinion gear system that holds clutch
elements in precise alignment, virtually eliminating friction
on the spool shaft during the cast. Quick Fire® II enables
quick, easy casting. The clutch bar disengages the spool,
allowing the line to free-spool, slowed only by the brake
setting. The spool re-engages quickly as the handle is
turned. Fluidrive® gearing means that your reel was
manufactured with the highest tolerances and utmost
control in the gear-cutting process, to ensure a smooth,
powerful retrieve every time. Line recovery in inches per
handle turn.
The Shimano Citica 200 G Series Casting Reels are
lightweight baitcasting reels featuring the high quality
components and aesthetically pleasing design Shimano is
famous for. The 2012 release by Shimano introduced a
whole new look to their popular baitcasting reels. The
new Citica 200 G Series reels are loaded with premium
features, yet still maintain a reasonable price tag. The
ergonomic design allows anglers hours of fishing without
any discomfort and the light weight of the reel will ensure
fatigue will not hinder anglers from doing what they love.
We offer the Citica 200G Series of reels in the 6.1 and
7.1 speeds in the right hand model and the 6.1 speed in
the left hand model. Please consult the technical specs
tab for more detailed information on each model.

One of Shimano’s most popular reels and one of the best
values in the Shimano reel line-up, the Shimano Citica
200G Series Casting Reel has been newly redesigned
with new look and new platform. Still incredibly ergonomic
and comfortable to fish, it features a lightweight aluminum
frame and graphite sideplates, which provide a rigid base
of operations. In conjunction with Shimano’s HEG: High
Efficiency Gearing, this frame keeps all parts in perfect
alignment and ensures solid cranking power. The VBS:
Variable Brake System with a Reduced Mass Hub is also
easily accessed, and delivers complete cast control for a
variety of conditions and fishing applications. The Citica
G Series is now offered in three gear ratios as well,
offering a level of versatility not possible with the previous
generation. Back and better than ever, the Shimano
Citica G Series Casting Reel is a deadly blend of
performance and price point.

Shimano Citica G Baitcasting Reels feature Shimano's
High Effeciency Gearing (HEG). The increased size of
the drive gear and the pinion gear provides increased
leverage and power. The one-piece frame that
incorporates the setplate and the one-piece stamped
sideplate eliminates flex in the drivetrain that causes
normal gears to bind under pressure. By eliminating the
flex and increasing the leverage, Shimano is able to
provide high-speed retrieves and deliver an incredible
amount of torque, while maintaining the smooth, silent

Shimano Citica G, with advanced ergonomic design, is
available with three different gear ratios, and the two tone
coloring makes Citica G an ideal match to Clarus rods.
Quickfire II

A system used for easy and fast
one-handed casting. The line and
trigger self-center, and are within
easy grasp of the angler's index
finger. By pulling the line and the
trigger with one hand, the bail opens
and is ready to be cast.
