Lightweight and the power to stop big fish. Not a sentence you are used to hearing! Seemingly against the laws of nature. Thunnus takes a page from our Bicycle division using Carbon materials in high impact situations. Thunnus CI4 is a response to all the anglers out there in love with the ease of use and functionality that wanted the reel to shed some weight. Thunnus CI4 is up to 7 ounces lighter than its predecessor without sacrificing any power. Quite the opposite!! Due to new drag systems for the Main Drag and the Baitrunner drag Thunnus CI4 is the most efficient live bait spinning reel on the market with unmatched adjustability for fishing any bait in any condition as well as the smooth stopping power that this generation of Thunnus will be known for.

Great drag system
September 24, 2015
I paired the reel with a med Terez rod. Makes a perfect setup for larger fish. Great Tarpon and Cobia setup. Super drag system. Love the live bait feature. Comfortable large handle. Own several 8000 and 12000.
ConsSeems to be over rated on .40 line capacity. Have never been able to get more then 275 yards as compared to rating of 320.

It is beautiful, smooth, tough and your not going to do any better than this for a big spinning reel. I love the freespool lever.
ProsYou can cast jigs or bait care free with spot on accuracy. Retrieves line back fast and it is a blast catching big fish on a spinning reel.
ConsEvery cast puts a twist in the line. You cannot put the pole on the rail. The flouro topshots have a tendency to unravel off the spool.

what's the heaviest fish will be able to handle
This reel is designed to handle large fish. However, it has a carbon composite body. Some people say it can "torque" on you under strain. It should handle fish up to around 100#.
