Shimano Stradic Ci4+ FB

The Shimano Stradic Ci4+ FB release features a newly developed Magnumlite rotor which gives the feeling of lightness in-hand when retrieving lures all day - yet strong on performance. Shimano have also adopted CI4+ in the body construction which is a lightweight carbon material that reduces overall weight but still maintains rigidity.

To further refine angler experience, the Stradic CI4+ FB also has G Free Body; this feature balances the entire reel by centering the internal components. HAGANE gear produced by cold forging process enhances durability and strength of the reels main gear. Coreprotect prevents water ingress into the body cavities.

From the lakes and rivers to the inshore saltwater environments the new Shimano Stradic Ci4+ FB series has it covered.



CI4 Carbon Interfusion 4 (valence electrons) is a graphite body material that has been reinforced with carbon fibre. Lighter than Magnesium, yet strong enough to cope with the stresses of saltwater fishing. 


These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.


By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation; less effort and power giving ...


Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new AR-C spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming....


Gear is at the very heart of the reel and creates strength and durability. The entire cold-forging process is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and the result is precision durability. 

“I’ve held the new Stradic CI4+ FB in my hand and WOW; its’ has to be one of the best fishing reels ever produced by Shimano”....Paul Worsteling - Tackle World Cranbourne
