Thunnus CI4 is a response to all the anglers out there in love with the ease of use and functionality that wanted the reel to shed some weight. Thunnus CI4 is up to 7 ounces lighter than its predecessor without sacrificing any power. Due to new drag systems for the Main Drag and the Baitrunner drag Thunnus CI4 is the most efficient live bait spinning reel on the market with unmatched adjustability for fishing any bait in any condition as well as the smooth stopping power that this generation of Thunnus will be known for. These reels let you control delicate live bait more precisely.
Then, slam the hook home! Hagane Gear With amazing strength and durability, the Hagane Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold forging technology.
The result is assured resilience. It's the fruit of Shimano's inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metals continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano's reels. Fluidrive II Building upon the successes of Fluidrive, which provides extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting process, Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface to maximize tooth contact. This increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort. Propulsion Line Management System The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion spool lip design.Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off of the spool in smaller loops during the cast which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts with less friction.
The Propulsion spool also utilizes a long stroke design to further enhance the casting distance. Furthermore, there is less bouncing of the line on the spool lip like on a standard spinning spool. Because of the unique shape of the Propulsion spool, the line flows consistently off of the spool. So, with a standard spool, friction alternates from heavy to light as the line slaps the spool lip. This causes backlash and inconsistent line speeds.
The Propulsion spool lip provides consistently light friction to overcome these situations. Super Stopper II Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates back play. This provides the angler with instant hook setting power.
In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow back reeling for special techniques and situations. Super lightweight CI4 frame and rotor. Paladin Gears, Propulsion Line Management System. Power Roller III line roller. Waterproof drag with Dartainium II cross carbon washers.
