Shimano Stradic Ci4+ Spinning Reel

The newly updated Shimano Stradic Ci4+ Spinning Reel is back with a lighter overall weight, improved components and re-imagined aesthetics. Shimano has introduced the Stradic Ci4+ with updated performance features engineered to improve it's on the water functionality. First and foremost, the reel now incorporates the Hagane Gearing popular in other new Shimano reels. The upgrade provides greater power when reeling and smoother overall operation. New Magnumlite rotor utilizes an asymmetrical shape that reduces the energy needed to get the retrieve going - ultimately, this may not sound like anything of importance, but it certainly does add to the effortless retrieve the Stradic Ci4+ Spinning Reel is known for. In an effort to reduce corrosion, the new Stradic Ci4+ makes use of Shimano's Coreprotect technology that reduces water from reaching the gearing of the reel under the spool.

Other small changes include a higher center of gravity which is intended to work with the Magnumlite rotor in order to reduce the force necessary to start the reel turning which helps when both fighting fish or retrieving a lure. A new titanium wire bail is super strong and is designed to open wider. Finally, you'll notice Shimano replaced the EVA foam knob with a standard, flat style knob which is both more durable and has a more traditional feel to it. For more information about the Shimano technologies in the Ci4+, please review the technical specs tab.

We offer the Shimano Stradic Ci4+ Spinning Reel in four sizes: 1000, 2500, 3000, and 4000. Please consult the technical specs tab for detailed information on each model.

What is Ci4+?

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. It is over one and a half times stronger than Shimano's 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 can create an extremely lightweight reel with very precise tolerances.

Reviewer: Randy Walker - RBBASS from Roseville, CA United States  
Used Shimano spinning reels for years along with one other brand. Great looking reel. Not had a chance to use it yet but I'm sure it's going to be nice.

bail on stradic July 18, 2017
Reviewer: Augustin Galvez from lancaster, CA United States  
As per usual, everything from the quality of product to the quality of your personnel was outstanding. The only problem I did have was with the bail. it was a bit bent and a bit loose. Once I straightened the bail ,everything else fell into place.
