Winner of the EFTTEX 2014-2015 'Fixed Spool' spinning reel category, this front drag Shimano reel is at the forefront of fishing and mechanical technology.
Exclusive Ci4+ composite build in the body and the "Magnumlite Ci4+" rotor means no loss of strength but the weight is slashed and performance enhanced with a strong, smoother and more sensitive feel.
Usually when we see so many features in a spec list we think they might be gimmicks, but the Rarenium Ci4+ FB ain't gimmicky!
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, yet still retains the strength and stiffness required to ensure the internal gears retain their integrity when under pressure.
The inclusion of a Magnumlite CI4+ rotor not only reduces weight further, it produces an ultra light rotation which improves the winding sensitivity, 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. 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 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.
The Rarenium Ci4+ FB is an incredible, high performing, lightweight reel with a quick adjust saltwater-proof drag and is available from us in 1000, 2500 and 4000 sizes.
