Stradic's do it again!!!
I have many Shimano Stradic reels. Why, because they never fail me. This new C-14 is no exception. The main reasons have to do with castability. They cast like a dream and lay line like a smooth sheet w/o digging in and a great retrieve ratio. My friends think I'm crazy to use them in saltwater but I recently wrestled a nice snook from the mangroves as well as caught bluefish and spanish mackerel from the surf in Florida with these reels. I have several sizes, and each is soooo balanced by the incredible lightness per size ratio, making it effortless to cast endlessly w/o fatigue or reel/rod balance issues. Love these guys, and just gifted one to a friend!!!

I bought a stradic 2500 ci4+ a week ago, i used it 3 times then the drag washer melted, which made me order new drag washers from carbontex, I expected a $230 shimano reel could have at least a better drag washer.

It's a wonder how something so slight can perform so well. I admit that it looks a little cheap at first glance. It has that look of a $15 reel you see in the cheap section of the tackle shop, but those fears are quickly dismissed once it is in hand. The only problem I've encountered is a slight crunching noise when reeling under load. It doesn't seem to affect performance at all, but my Sustains are practically silent under the same conditions.
ProsSuper light but sturdy.

This reel is as smooth as silk with its action. Very well balanced. You will be very satisfied using it in shore.

This reel is well made, quite and smooth. It's well worth the price. The drag is also smooth and gradual. I like the spool because it has an indication of where the maximum fill. This reel quality made.
ProsQuality and smooth

Light weight reel
As far as small spinning reels go, I believe this reel to be the lightest and strongest for its size.

Fantastic reel, smooth drag and casts a mile. I use it for finesse fishing in Texas.
ProsIt's a piece of art, well balanced and pretty to look at.
ConsAt over $200 dollars for the reel it's hard to pull the trigger, but I'm glad I did.
