Does anyone know if Academy or someone similar will carry the closed spool to upgrade my citica d to the salt version? I am in The Woodlands if you know of a store near by.

You can order the spool direct from us if they do not stock it. More than likely I would not expect Academy to stock the spool for you.

FYI - I wrap the reel spools with holes in them with 2-3 wraps of teflon pipe thread tape to keep the water out.

This works really well also :) I use the closed spool for heavier line or increased line capacity when fishing inshore here on the west coast.

I looked at these in Academy last nite. Seemd like the 100 had the closed spool and the 200 had the holes. Did I miss something?

Well slap me silly!! I just figgered dsv meant 'deep spool version' since it has a deeper spool. Didn't know there was a saltwater version. Same with Curados??

Bantam1:

Does the replacement spool come with the VBS brake attached? This may actually help out as I could spool with both mono and braid and swap on the fly.

is this thread to old to reopen
? I have never heard this. All I do is fish salt, all I have is the spools with holes cause they cast a whole lot better, but I have never had a problem with several curados (green)and recently a citica 100 that I swapped the spool out from a 50mg. What should I be looking for as far as problems? I use them alot and im out wade fishing with them, just wash them off when im done and no problems so far.

It can allow water to enter the reel through the holes in the spool. Place a piece of masking tape over the holes and you will have no problems. If you properly maintain your reel then you will see no adverse effects from having a Lo-Mass spool.
