Shimano Chronarch CI4+ Casting Reel

Shimano Chronarch CI4+ Casting Reel

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. The new CI4+ is the next generation of Shimano's® CI4 material and 250% stronger. It is over one and a half times stronger than normal XT-7 graphite and is over 20% lighter. Because it does not contain metal, it is impervious to rust.

High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) provides incredible power and torque. Available in multiple gear ratios to cover entire applications, the Chronarch CI4+ has a modern and compact design and appearance.
