The new Shimano Ultegra Ci4+ long cast surf reels combines all of the latest Shimano technologies to provide the ultimate long distance surf casting performance. Combining Ci4+ construction, X-Protect water resistance, and Hagane gearing provides surf fisherman with a highly rigid and durable option in the most unforgiving environments. With two sizes available in the new Ultegra Ci4+ long cast surf spinning reels, you will be hard pressed to find another spinning reel capable of providing further casts to get to the fish. The 14000 size also features Super Slow 5 Oscillation, creating a near perfect line lay and allows the line to fly off the spool effortlessly on your casts, which greatly maximizes the reel’s casting distance to the next level. Both sizes come with two spools to allow for quick changing of line type in order to adapt to different conditions, techniques, and locations.

I think I just fell in love with another Shimano
I only use Penns for my spinners, but I can't say this is not a nice looking reel with good specs. Just today I went to a local vendor to look at both the ultegra and the TranX after seeing them here. Nice and smooth action on both and they are both great looking. Have to decide between these two reels or another Avet or my girl might shoot me for having too many already.

Awesome Reel !!!! I am a loyal person and want to personally thank John Vaughn and Jay Caldwell and the team at Tackle Direct for years of amazing service. I bought one of these reels to pair on a St Croix Legend 11 ft Surf Rod for the striper run in the Potomac this year. First of all it comes to my house the next day and I immediately hit the river. Man does this setup fly !!!!!! People were literally stopping what they were doing to watch me cast. Using a 3oz buck tail or 4oz spoon I was instantly amazed !!! Used it with a 5 oz sinker and blood worms and I was able to get it 3x further than the fisherman around me. I was so impressed I ordered another Shimano Ultegra CI4 5500 and St Croix Legend Rod the next day !!!! I have around 60 Shimano reels and am usually a bait caster guy but this instantly has become one of the smoothest, farthest casting, as well as sensitive combos I have ever fished with. And paired together just looks so sexy !!!! #tackledirect #shimano

Casts a mile, holds up to salty surf, strong as hell....what more could you want?
Well, frankly, I wish I could give it 4.5 stars because a surf reel with 44 pounds of drag, where folks might be targeting big bull reds, sharks, stripers, etc. . . . it really ought to have a better handle option. Don't get me wrong - the handle is totally strong. Not flimsy at all. But I do prefer the more grabby egg-shaped that come on the Stradic 8000s for example.

Paired with a 12' Shimano Tiralejo, I can easily hit the second gut. With some practice, I have no doubt I'll be able to cast 4 oz 150 yards.

Shimano's usual peerless fit and finish, excellent engineering, and you have a winner. If you'd been thinking about the Saragosa due to its sealed body and strength, take a look at this if you're mostly into surf fishing.

I'm saving for another.

ProsCasts a mile, lightweight, smooth as butter, 44 pound drag, smooth drag, sealed,
ConsDon't like the T-handle on a reel built for busting big surf fish.

Excellent reel for shore casting
Excellent reel for shore casting. Lightweight, rigid and I love the Insta-drag It does cast far. I will buy the bigger model in the near future.

Shimano Smooth
Ultegra 14000 a very smooth lightweight reel. So far I have taken it out several times just casting . IT does cast far but as with any other reel its only as good as your skill. With that said casting is effortless and the retrieve is very smooth. I really like the feel of this reel just waiting to give it the real test with a striper or blue on .
ProsSmooth lightweight.
ConsNone so far .

I see recommendations to use a 5500 on a 10’ rod. I have my 5500 on a 9 foot ODM DNA. I have the ODM Genesis 11’ 2-6. I was thinking the 1400 would be a good reel. Is this correct?
1 Answers
The 1400 Ultegra would pair up with the 11 foot ODM Genesis

This reel looks like it does not have the aero wrap II feature like the Ultegra XTD 5500. Can this reel cast as far as the Ultegra XTD? The XTD has both aero wrap II and slow ocillation features, while the CI4+ just has slow ocillation.
1 Answers
The Ci4+ will cast just as far as the standard Ultegra xtd while not incorperating the Aero Wrap II technology.

What is "X-Protect water resistance" in this reel? I didn't see any seals or gaskets in the schematic.
1 Answers
There's a lip between the body and the rotor that resist water from entering the gears of the reel as well as grease that prevents water intrusion. This reel can handle splash and spray from waves but shouldn't be dunked.
