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.

Awesome Reels
April 18, 2014
I love these reels! High quality as always from Shimano. Smooth drag and great baitrunner feature. I love these reels for surf fishing because I can set the reel on my rod holder, flick on the baitrunner switch and I don't have to worry about leaving the bail open or loosening up my main drag. Once a fish is on, turn the handle and the reel automatically switches from baitrunner mode to fighting mode. This allows me to set my main drag and not have to mess with it again.
ProsHigh quality, great looks, smooth drag

Used it today

I used this reel today with a GLoomis PBR844S Pro-Blue Saltwater rod. Fished for sheephead and black sea bass. I own the 8k version both are worth every penny.

Best baitrunner reels
November 13, 2013
I purchased Thunnus 6000 to pair with my star rod Paraflex 10'. It is by far the smoothest reel I ever used. I learned through hard knocks with other live liners reels. Please do yourself a favor and skip other live liner reels and buy the shimano baitrunner. You get what you pay for.. Smooth, great casting and dependable reels. I have caught 40 inch Stripers off the pier with breeze. Highly recommend! I just wished I got the 8000.

What would be a good rod (preferably Shimano) to pair this reel with for flylining macs & sardines for California yellowtail? I plan on spooling it with 50lb PP braid. Thanks
