Hi all, just ordered a Citrix 364 for soft baiting but had some advice from a fishing shop since that it would not be good.

The guy at the shop said it is not good for light jig heads in shallow water.

How have people found the citrix reel for soft baiting?

What weight jig heads do you use?

What weight for 7, 10-15m?

Thanks for any advice.

I have no problems casting SB's with the Citrix, but mainly use it for microjigs now & use spin sets for casting.
