I use this reel for trout. Its way more then what i need. The drag is just so smooth. Looks great. Feels great.
Light, strong, i mean 15ilbs of drag on a 2500? Think about it.
Other anglers next to you may get jealous.

I have been wanting one of these reels for a while and my wife surprised me for fathers day with it. Great reel, smooth and solid. I absolutely love it.
Great reel, excellent drag and smooth as butter.
Wish it was cheaper. I would have more of these. But you get what you pay for.

great reel with super light weight and smooth drag
August 9, 2014
I have two of these, a 1000 series C14+ and a 2500 series. These reels are smooth, light weight, and durable at a very fair price point. I spool these reels with 10 lb. braid and they manage it well. I use these outfits mostly for casting light weight bait to catch trout.

Great little reel
June 2, 2014
I've had ZERO problems with this reel. It casts like a dream and handles most anything I can catch inshore. Do remember to wash it after use. There are some signs of corrosion, but that is just superficial.

CI4 2500 Reel
April 9, 2014
Great reels, I have four all rigged with diffrent lures. I use them 100% of the time. Never have any problems, work great. Each of them is on a Shimano Terramar rod and they are a fantastic combo. I have caught hundredsof oversize Reds, Seatout, and Snook. These reels can handle anything.

All about the finesse .
February 23, 2014
I've used this reel while fishing for LMB and SMB on the Tidal and Upper Potomac River...this bad boy is nothing but the truth. I can cast light jigs a mile with this thing. and on top of that it has the power to reel in the infamous Snake Head without any trouble. I have it paired with a St. Croix AV76ML . This setup allows me to cast from my kayak all day without any fatigue at all . I also have the same reel on my St. Croix AVIS76ML , landed my first Speckled Trout on this setup(22 incher) . Customer service was on the one as usual !
Light weight , smooth drag , sexy looking unit , very sturdy so far .

Sooo light!
December 25, 2013
Just got this reel and spooled it up with 8 pound power pro. Wow this reel is absolutely incredible. Get this with a 7ft star stellar light. It literally feels like you are not holding anything but it still has enough drag to target shcoolie stripers fluke and flounder. I've even caught a yellowtail snapper on it. Can't wait till spring when I can test it on some reel fish. Sooooo smooth. Castied took one hard crank and let the reel do it's job and boy it did. after two cranks the lure was back in after a 50. Foot cast. Get this reel.

Excellent reel. Super Smooth
September 20, 2013
The new CI4+ has been a pleasure to fish. I own the previous version of this reel and can tell the difference between the two. The Xship seems to give it more stability and power. I have this reel matched with a super light rod and have no problem fishing this combo all day. Has plenty of power for Bass fishing and Trout and big redfish on the flats. Get one, you won't be disappointed.
Super light. Tons of power. Looks cool.
Only con I have found so far is being able to find a variety of rods that matches up to the reel. They are so light, you really need to find a very light rod to match it with.
