The totally re-vamped Stradic CI4+FB is a significant improvement over the previous range. Weight has been reduced by 5 grams or more, while other operational features have been improved to further reduce the feel of weight.
This model has been developed around Shimano's G-Free Body, where the oscillating system and worm drive have been moved closer to the stem of the reel. This lowers the reel's centre of gravity and makes it feel lighter in the hand.
To enhance the feeling of lightness and feather touch rotation, the new CI4+ FB model comes with the latest Magnumlite rotor. The bail trip mechanism has been moved to the opposite side of the line roller, negating the need for a heavy bail hold support. Consequently, both sides of the rotor are now 22% lighter, but the balance and rotation is improved with 22% less inertia.
The next upgrade was the inclusion of Coreprotect, which is a protective water-repellent coating placed in the roller clutch and the line roller to prevent water and small debris entering.
Finally, this series comes with Hagane Gear. Shimano's cold forged gears are smoother, stronger and more durable than any others on the market. This gives the reel a much smoother gear transition, but also plenty of pulling power.
