Description

Shimano Stradic CI4+ Spinning Reels feature a redesigned CI4+ frame and rotor, a Rapid Fire drag for quick, easy adjustments, and Aero Wrap II Oscillation. CI4 stands for Carbon Interfusion with the 4 referring to the number of electrons in the carbon atom. This carbon fiber reinforced graphite material is over one and a half times stronger than Shimano's normal XT-7 graphite and is over 20 percent lighter. And because the frame, sideplate and rotor does not contain metal, these components are impervious to rust and corrosion. As a result of the materials strength and weight, Shimano has created an extremely lightweight reel with very precise tolerances.

Stradic CI4+ Spinning Reels are also equipped with Shimano's Paladin gear durability enhancement in which machined, cold forged aluminum and brass gearing is used over the standard die-cast gearing. This system produces much smoother and incredibly durable reel gearing. Shimano's Propulsion line management system features a special spool and component design which helps line come off the spool more efficiently. This means smoother and longer casts, less line twist and no more wind knots, birdsnets or backlashes. The system also helps line lay on the spool more evenly so repetitive casting always has the same performance.

  • Lightweight, durable Magnumlite CI4+ rotor
  • X-Ship technology
  • Rapid Fire Drag for quick easy, adjustments (except on 1000FAML)

I usually don't write reviews but this gem of a reel deserves a little extra notoriety. I just purchased this reel about a week ago (3000 series) and it as as smooth as silk, very effortless retrieve, zero wobble and solid as steel. I used it fishing a local lake and caught several walleye, largemouth and some hefty pike. It held up and exceeded my performance expectations. Paired with a St. Croix 6'6" medium heavy fast action rod, the combo is a lightweight duo with some serious finesse capabilities and plenty of backbone. You CANNOT go wrong with this reel. Will be purchasing another for my old man for father's day. Excellent reel.
Pros: lightweight, Solid performance, Cosmetically appealing, Effortless retrieve, Excellent drag system
Cons: No spare spool
Best Uses: None Specified

About Me:
Pickerel hunter like a pro but not a pro!
I got the 2500 size and I already own the older ci4 in the 1000 size and all I can say is the new + version blows it away! Lighter way smoother less friction from rotor mass!
Pros: Much less rotor mass spins up and down better with less effort than the older version AWESOME!
Cons: nothing!
