Shimano Stradic CI4+ Reels


Shimano Stradic. CI4 stands for Carbon Interfusion with the 4 referring to the number of electrons in the Carbon atom. Ultimately, this means CI4 is reinforced Carbon Fiber. The new CI4+ is the next generation of Shimano’s CI4 material and 250% stronger. It is over one and a half times stronger than their normal XT-7 graphite and is over 20% lighter and because it does not contain metal, it is impervious to rust.

Tina has been fishing since before she could walk.She met the love of her life 19 years ago and now they compete to see who can catch the most or largest fish. Together they raised their little girl who is no longer little, but a beautiful young fisherwoman herself and more competition for the happy family.

  1. The new Shimano Stradic C14+

    I have two of these, and my wife uses a 3000 series C14+ (she has small hands) we both love these reels. We are lucky enough to be able to fish hard and often. Our reels get used hard and often. These reels are smooth, light weight, and durable at a very fair price point. I spool these reels with 10 lb. braid and they manage it well. (some reels can not handle braid no matter how careful you are). A small amount of mono backing is a “must”. However, that’s not a negative against this particular reel, for as most users of braid have learned–it is usually best to use a little mono as backing under braid. We use these outfits almost exclusively for casting light weight jigs to speckled trout and red puppy drum. This reel has a good smooth drag that you will appreciate when you hook “the big one”. At first you may not appreciate the reel’s light weight, but after a long day of casting, believe me, you will be glad you invested a few extra bucks for this product.
