One of the world's most popular high-performance reels gets a significant upgrade. The Shimano® Stradic® CI4+ FB Spinning Reel incorporates the latest Shimano technology while retaining all the performance features that serious anglers count on. Its super-light, strong CI4+ carbon body and cold-forged aluminum spool are now joined by Shimano's Magnumlite Rotor, which is 25% lighter than previous styles. This affords incredible balance and reduces efficiency-robbing inertia by 22%, resulting in an almost-effortless feel whenever you wind the handle. In addition, the Stradic's G-Free Body design places the center of gravity closer to the rod, for amazing comfort with minimal fatigue; meanwhile, the roller, clutch, and body now feature CoreProtect for superior water resistance without the "heavy rotation" feeling common in other treated reels. Meanwhile, this reel is all Stradic: a smooth, powerful, incredibly durable reel that will easily match up to any quarry in freshwater, as well as inshore saltwater. Its ultra-hard Hagane® cold forged drive gear combines with the X-Ship pinion gear-support concept to ensure perfect gear mesh at all times, for unflinchingly smooth control even under heavy loads. 6 S A-RB shielded stainless steel ball bearings (plus 1 Super Stopper II anti-reverse roller bearing); advanced AR-C spool design plus Power Roller; 1-Piece Bail for unimpeded line flow.
