Product Description
shimano Shimano Stradic CI4+ Spinning Reel

Constructed with Shimano's revolutionary CI4+ material technology, the Shimano Stradic CI4+ Spinning Reel delivers unrivaled strength and lightweight precision. CI4 material is over one and a half times stronger than Shimano's normal graphite and more than 20% lighter. Reinforced carbon fiber frame, sideplate and rotor construction creates a solid base of operations and helps ensure all moving parts are in line and functioning smoothly. Because it does not contain metal, the reinforced carbon fiber is impervious to rust.
\t
Stradic CI4 Spinning Reel's internal systems and components include Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement for retaining that out-of-the-box smoothness and Fluidrive II system to enhance extremely tight gear tolerances, maximizing tooth contact and increasing efficiency. Features Shimano's Propulsion Line Management System, Aerowrap II Oscillation system for preventing line twists, and Waterproof Drag for consistent stopping power. Perfect for light-line and finesse fishing applications, the Stradic CI4 Spinning Reel provides the ultimate in spinning reel performance. Approved for use in salt water.
