Rated 4.5 out of 5áby 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby SIMPLY THE BEST I could go on and on about how awesome this reel is.... my buddy suggested it and since he fishes professionally, I gave it a try... after I fished with it the first time I bought 2 more within a months time...I am a serious bass fisherman... This reel is by far the best reel I have ever used and I have been fishing for over 40 years and have always spared no expense when it came to my fishing equipment... my STRONG suggestion is this... BUY IT.... well worth the money... I bet you will buy another after you use it.... February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Smooth Reel I have three different sizes of this reel. It's very light weight, and the drag is super smooth. Not too bad of line twist like other reels. All positive, except the price could be a little less. August 5, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5áby Works good but the body is weak I bought this reel and my son used it and somehow he broke it the first night. Then I returned it the next day and the next mourning before we went fishing the rod / reel got knocked over and the reel broke again this time on the bail arm. And I keep reading how great this reel is so rather than return it for my money I drove to a different location 30 miles away to get a third reel. The reel works good but I had a ton of hassle trying to get one that was not effective. I have never spent so much money on a fishing reel before and I have never had one break as easily as this one did. Hopefully it was a freak occurrence twice in three days because I do like the product August 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great product Excellent reel. I use it for flats fishing. The 4000 is equivalent to other manufacturers 3000 models. Super smooth action July 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great for all day fishing This is a great reel if you fish all day. A couple of onces adds up after a thousand casts. If you are a serious casting fisherman highly recommended. Have several of these in different sizes and have nothing but positive reviews. July 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Wow, what a great reel I bought a 2500 FA for Crappie & Bass Fishing & after using with it for 3 outings I was so pleased with it's performance that I bought a 4000FA for Strippers, Northern, and also for use on Florida's Intercoastal waters. I have used it offshore as well, even though it is pretty light for that purpose. Both reels cast really far, have an extra smooth retrieve, and a great drag system. I have found no negatives in about 50 hours of fishing. I have the 2500 spooled with 15 lb Power Pro with a spliced 10 lb 10' Flourocarbon leader. I have paired it with a 6'6" Medium G Loomis GL2 Fast Action rod rated for 6-12 lb line and 1/8-3/8 oz lures. It is a great match, great balance, great feel. I have the 4000 spooled with 30 lb Power Pro with a spliced 25 lb 15' Flourocarbon leader. I have the 4000 paired up with a Hurricane Calico Jack IM7 Graphite rod, 7'6" Medium Action rated for 8-17 lb mono line, 3/8-3/4oz lures. I caught a 14 lb grouper on it- the reel handled it nicely, but I'd recommend going with a little heavier rod if you are going to be in spots where you might hook bigger fish. In my opinion the Ci4+ 4000FA reel can handle a 30 lb fish no problem, but it would probably require a medium heavy to heavy rod to match up to its capabilities. If you want to use a Stradic Ci4 for serious offshore fishing I'd go with a 6000 or even larger, paired with an offshore spinning rod like a Shimano Tallus Bluewater rod. June 28, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5áby 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
