The Shimano Thunnus CI4 TU12000CI4 Spinning Reel truly lives up to its name – it’s a brawny tuna hunting machine that’s lightweight and has mucho cranking power (4.4:1 gear ratio). This is the biggest and best of all baitrunner style reels on the market today, and anglers across the country are singing their praises. The CI4 Carbon body that is the driving force behind the TU12000CI4 cuts weight and remains big game worthy, giving the angler a rejuvenating fishing experience. The TU12000CI4 is capable of taming large yellowfin and bluefin tuna, upwards of the 100# mark – and you can fish them using live pitch baits, chunks, or lures should the time call for it. Also well within the range of the reel are trophy sized mahi and king mackerel, wahoo, amberjack, yellowtail, and more! The smoothness of the reel is unparalleled in the specialty baitrunning style market, as is the overall size and power. 6 A-RB ball bearings are tactically placed throughout the carbon body, and a top-shelf Hagane gearing system gives you an unbelievably powerful and fluid crank. The Hagane gear system uses digital mockups to 3-D print the main gear so that any flaws created by gear cutting are all but eliminated. The reel works in the same way as its little brothers, as the spool will spin in a controlled freespool when the baitrunner lever is flipped, and simply turn the handle to engage a powerful Dartainium drag washer that pumps out a powerful 25# drag. The CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool on the Shimano Thunnus TU12000CI4 is braid ready, and will pack on over 500 yards of standard 50# braided spectra.
