Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel I use the 2500 as my steelhead and trout reel with a 8-9 ft Rod and I could not be happier with it. Smooth, very balanced and light and great drag. I would highly recommend this reel. November 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth and light Great reel. Just picked up my second in 2500 and will be getting a few more.The X-Ship is incredibly smooth, and it balanced perfectly with the 802 NRX. October 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best spinning reel ever Finally I found my favorite spinning reel. My fishing buddy got one last year and kept on about how nice it fished. After my sadonas anti reverse took a dump I got one. Went night fishing for hybrid bass and it casted farther, smoother and just a pleasure to use. Pricey but worth it. Now penn makes one that's bad to the bone for half as much the battle model and it's good but not my favorite. STRADICS should come with extra spools July 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beast reel Great overall reel. It is smooth and the speed knob is a gray feature May 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by great reel for first few fishing trips, it got noisy. Sent back for warranty repair 6 weeks ago, and still have not got it back.. there great aslong as it dont break. Dont hold you breath for warranty re pair. I have owned shimano for 45 years started with the. FX models now moved up to stradic ci4. The thurrus ci4 May 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by One sweet Reel. Not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said other than "yea it's that good". Super light super srong super quiet, if your a spinning reel guy like myself you will absolutely love the Ci4. I got the 4000 because I like having the extra line and even when finesse fishing I like 10lb line and the 4000 is perfect for that but even being the bigger model it's so so light! I have it on a pro series St.Crox 7ft fast action rod and it's an amazing setup. The rod also weighs next to nothing but is still slightly nose heavy even with the 4000 size Ci4, it's that light of a reel! Only thing I can say is for this kinda money an extra spool should be a no brainer. Should come with it you shouldn't have to buy it extra in a $200 reel. That being said I knew before hand it didn't come with the extra spool and I bought it anyway, love it, would buy it again no doubt about it. It's just a plain ol awesome badass reel!!! April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best spinning reel in it's price range I bought this reel to put on my fenwick aetos rod. The whole out fit is amazing very light and durable. And the most sensitive combo I own. I have the quantum exo and smoke, the stradic ci4 is a 100x better! The reel is so good I'm going to buy anther one very soon to use for a drop shot reel. March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightest ever... Replaced a Diawa Sweepfire with the CI4+ 2500 spinning reel on an MHX SJ783 custom rod I built for whacky and worm fishing. The 2oz lighter reel had a much greater impact on castability, and comfort then I would of thought. I recommend this reel for all fishing!! December 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shimano Stradic CI4+ Spinning Reel- best ever! Shimano does great job, never stop improving. The best one for now. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by phenomenal Great reel with power and durability. Its a lot stronger than the older ci4. The drag on this is great. My first trip with this reel I caught 5 reds and a lot of good size jacks. Reeled them in no problem. October 2, 2013
