Is this the 5.5:1, or the 6.5:1? Since you said you needed a faster retrieve I figured it's not the 7.1:1. I sold my Citica 200E6 to Geauxfish. It was a great reel and the cosmetics weren't nice as yours. These are better than the G series Citica's, and the G Series Curado's in my opinion. Good luck on the sale and it's priced right.
