Stradic CI4+ Spinning Reels

Utilizing the new CI4+ material for construction, Stradic CI4+ is the ultimate in lightweight reels designed for the ultra-finesse angler using lightweight fluorocarbon, braided or monofilament lines. From drop shotting to shakey heads and small Texas rigs, this reel has you covered.

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 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. Because it does not contain metal, it is impervious to rust.

So, as a result of its strength and weight, Shimano created an extremely lightweight reel with very precise tolerances.
