I use this reel for funny fish and striped bass. The only difference is the test of the braid and fluoro leader. Coupled with a good rod, it is a great fishing experience. This is my 2nd reel and I still use my old one every week.

Shimano is not doing something right
August 6, 2018
So I dont know what happend to shimano but after the black ci4 stradics, now all the 4000s and 5000s (Sustain, Stradic, even Stella) are way too tight retrieve under load. In the store when not under load they feel fine, but as soon as you're retrieving a lure it's too tight. But it's not just Shimano, even Penn is starting to feel like that too. Have Cabos and they are nice and effortless retrieve, as well as a Daiwa ballistic LT. The SW shimanos (saragosa, spheros, twin power sw, stella sw, even the cheaper sw's) all have effortless retrieve. But these new compact non SW models are way too tight and forearm tiring on the retrieve.
ProsThey look good They feel good when nothing is tied on
ConsThe retrieve is way too tight. Older models have much more effortless retrieve.

This reel is very light and strong enough to catch anything inshore to small tuna.
