Shimano Thunnus TU8000CI4 Spinning Reel


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.

Best Spinning Reel
January 28, 2015
Been switching my reels from Baitcasters to Thunnus's. All in all I am really a huge fan of both. I have the older Baitcaster that have the metal frame verse the Composite that is used in the Thunnus. The 12000\8000 Thunnus does still have some Metal in the Frame. This is the only downside to the Thunnus that I have hit so far. One of the reels I received the composite base was broken and I had to return for a replacement. This makes me worry about the long term durability of the new Thunnus. This does make reels much lighter, though. Time will have to be my judge on if the composite holds up as well as the metal for the older Baitcasters. As of now I am extremely happy with the reel and transition.
Pros:
Every feature under the sun!
Cons:
Less metal and more composite.

September 11, 2012
Based on Shimano's and TackleDirect expert recommendations; i coupled this with a 7 ft 2 Terez med-heavy [30-80lb] rod and it came to be a wonderful combi. Used 30 lb braid and been catching barracuda, seabass, rock fish with it.
Pros:
fast retrieve + very good drag
Cons:
none
