Shimano Ultegra CI4+ XSB Long Cast Saltwater Spinning Reel

Shimano Ultegra CI4+ XSB Long Cast Saltwater Spinning Reel

The use of CI4+ delivers a substantial weight saving on the compact Ultegra® body making rod speed easier to generate when distance casting.

CI4 stands for Carbon Interfusion with the 4 referring to the number of electrons in the Carbon atom. Ultimately, this means CI4 is reinforced Carbon Fiber. CI4+ is the next generation of Shimano's CI4 material and 250% stronger!

To further increase casting performance, the Ultegra uses 2-speed Slow Oscillation line lay and an AR-C Spool fitted with Instant Drag for simple, ultra fast adjustment. Cold Forged gearing and X-Ship® produce powerful winding performance, and five stainless A-RB bearings plus a Shimano® Roller bearing deliver supreme smoothness.
  • Ultra-lightweight CI4+ construction
  • Shimano S-Concept - silent, smooth, and strong
  • X-Ship enhances power transmission through gear for increased, smooth cranking power
  • 2-speed Slow Oscillation allows spool to move slowly, at two speeds, for more line wraps per cycle
  • Aero Wrap II to create optimal oscillation speeds
  • Instant Drag allows drag to be switched from free spool to fight by easily tightening lever on front of spool
  • Propulsion line management system for greater castability
  • Strong and lightweight CF (Cold Forged) Gear Technology
  • AR-C Spool allows line to peel off reel in smaller loops, resulting in longer and more accurate casts
  • Five S A-RB shielded, corrosion-resistant ball bearings
  • Approved for use in saltwater
  • Line retrieve per crank: 41"
