Rarenium CI4+ FB

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.
