Spinning 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 our CI4 material and 250% stronger.

It is over one and a half times stronger than our normal XT-7
graphite and is over 20% lighter. Because it does not
contain metal, it is impervious to rust.

So, as a result of its strength and weight, we can create an
extremely lightweight reel with very precise tolerances.
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that
eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant
hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can
be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and
This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by
counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and
smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach
similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the
rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate
vibrations caused by the reel.
Building upon the successes of Fluidrive, which provides
extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting
process, Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface to maximize
tooth contact. This increases the efficiency of the retrieve
for more power with less effort.
The SR-Concept combines the new concept of Reliance
with all aspects of the S-Concept: Smooth, Silent and
Strong. The Reliance Concept, or R-Concept, means that
dreams in reel design are now evolving into reality. The
result of the use of the new S-R Concept in design is the
development of many exciting new features.
S-Concept represents Shimano's initial philosophy on
which many of our spinning reel have been designed.
The three basic ideas that are inherent in the S-Concept
are Smooth, Silent and Strong.
•Smooth rotation and comfortable retrieve, coupled with
excellent drag performance and longer casting distance,
leads to our smooth, flawless operation.
•Silent operation of parts within the reel's construction
represents the attention to tight tolerances, reducing
excessive noise and resulting in the silent operation of
our reels.
•Strong, solid and functional construction leads to
powerful torque and durable drivetrains. This gives
anglers the strength and confidence they need to battle
elusive gamefish.
•The new sizing of our S-Concept reels offers anglers a
bigger spool and smaller body, resulting in a lighter,
more comfortable fishing experience without sacrificing
line capacity.
The end result are reels offering anglers smooth, silent
and strong reels that are designed for years of fishing
use. The knowledge of fishing and the minds of
Shimano's engineers have given today's angler state-of-
the-art reels that are ready for any challenge.
X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting
the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion
gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear.
This means the gears will stay in the same position
under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that
friction between the spool shaft and gear are
eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance
of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
Aero Wrap II is a worm gear
oscillation system with a specially
designed pitch to create optimal
oscillation speeds for the Propulsion
Spool Lip design. It provides uniform
line lay and winding shape to
prevent loss of energy during the
cast while providing longer casts
than other oscillation systems. So,
casting distance increases with less
effort required. (Aero Wrap II is not
available on Saros reels, which are
equipped with Slow Oscillation.)
The most obvious component of the
Propulsion Line Management System
is the new Propulsion spool lip
design. Through tens of thousands of
casting tests and computer
simulations it has been determined
that this new spool lip design
provides longer casting distances
than a standard spool lip design while
preventing backlashes and wind
knots from forming. It also allows the
line to flow off of the spool in smaller
loops during the cast which means
less slap on the stripper guide. This
means longer casts with less friction.
The Propulsion spool also utilizes a
long stroke design to further enhance
the casting distance. Furthermore,
there is less bouncing of the line on
the spool lip like on a standard
spinning spool. Because of the
unique shape of the Propulsion spool,
the line flows consistently off of the
spool. So, with a standard spool,
friction alternates from heavy to light
as the line slaps the spool lip. This
causes backlash and inconsistent line
speeds. The Propulsion spool lip
provides consistently light friction to
overcome these situations.
Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement Spinning Using
a special cold forged aluminum drive gear and a
hardened brass pinion gear (Stainless Steel pinion
gear on Stella SW), reels equipped with the Paladin
Gear Durability Enhancement will retain their
out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than before.
In fact, testing has shown that this combination of
metals is more durable than an all-stainless steel
drivetrain while maintaining the smoothness that
Shimano is famous for.
