Shimano Rarenium Ci4 Reel
One of the most technologically advanced reels from Shimano! The classy new Rarenium CI4+ has a body frame built from Shimano's exclusive CI4+ composite. This reduces the weight dramatically compared to metal bodied reels - giving these Shimano Reels a serious advantage. It still retains the strength and stiffness required to ensure the internal gears retain their integrity when under pressure, important when you are under pressure to land that big fish.
The inclusion of a Magnumlite CI4+ rotor not only reduces weight further, it produces an ultra light rotation which improves the winding sensitivity meaning you can feel every lunge and run, making the Rarenium CI4+ a superb lure fishing reel. All models combine Shimano's exclusive X-Ship gearing with 6 Shielded A-RB bearings. This produces ultra smooth performance combined with maximum winding efficiency - Shimano 'reely' have done it this time and produced a range of reels that set the benchmark in terms of quality and power.
The relatively slow 5.0:1 and 5.2:1 gear ratio delivers excellent torque for anglers fishing for larger species. Available in five sizes from the smallest 1000 size for finesse fishing with lightweight lures, to the largest 5000 model for heavier lure and feeder fishing or lightweight specimen fishing, the 3000 model has a shallow spool suitable for use with lightweight mono for float fishing or braid when predator or medium range feeder fishing. Part of the Shimano Reels Lightweight Concept, the new Rarenium CI4+ combines ultra light weight feel with powerful winding performance making it one of the most versatile reels in the Shimano front drag range.
If you are looking for your next Shimano Reel then the Rarenium Ci4 has to be a serious contender, smooth, strong and lightweight and an affordable pricetag. Check out some of our other
