Crappie Whisperer
Simply Fantastic   (from prior model)
Pros: lightweight, Solid performance, Cosmetically appealing, Effortless retrieve, Excellent drag system
Cons: No spare spool
Best Uses:
Comments: 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.

FABULOUS REEL   (from prior model)
Pros: Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Easy Casting, Durable, Reliable
Best Uses: River Fishing, Trolling, Jigging, Freshwater spin-fishing
Comments: I'm a big Shimano fan, so I expected this to be a good reel. I had NO idea how good it would be! I've never owned a Stella--I see no reason to spend that much for a reel. I have, however, USED a Stella, and I can report that the CI4 is the Stella's equal, if not its better. Casts and retrieves are flawless, effortless, and smooth almost beyond belief. The reel is also amazingly light in weight. Does that couple of ounces make a difference when you're on the water in northern Ontario and casting for 10 hours a day? It sure does! It's almost as if the reel isn't even there. It's that good. Kudos also to FishUSA for GETTING this reel to me at a time when nobody else in the country could get one. Am I a satisfied customer? OH, yeah!

Cons: Everyone is out of stock, Hard to find everyone so, No extra spool
Best Uses: Bass fishing from boat, Trolling, Shore Casting, Jigging, River Fishing
Comments: Best reel I have had so far. Smooth and easy to cast. Can feel the structure as you drag your Senko across the bottom. I have had the Stradic FH and MGFA, Daiwa Z and this reel is the best yet.

No questions have been asked about this item. Be the first!
What are the differences with this series of Ci4+ and the previous one? I have a 1000F and a 2500 from 2 years ago and I'm not sure how they can really be improved upon. I see the "new" 1000 is a couple 10ths of an ounce lighter and 2" faster on the retrieve but not much else that would inspire me to spend another $230 on a new reel. Give me a reason!

Shimano made very minor upgrades to this reel. It is just a little lighter, the body of the reel is a little stronger, and the reel is safer for saltwater use than ever before. Most of the mechanics of the reel are almost identical.
