The Shimano Thunnus CI4 TU6000CI4 Spinning Reel is the best selling version of the reel here at J&H, as we sell them primarily for snag and drop bunker fishing, but anglers love them from the surf as well for chunking and clamming applications. During the spring striper run, big cow bass gorge themselves on adult sized bunker, and snagging one of those suckers and letting them drop down below the safety of the pod is like ringing the dinner bell for a trophy sized bass. With the TU6000CI4, simply snag the bunker, engage your baitrunner switch, adjust spool tension with the rear drag system, and wait for that baby to start singing – then, turn your handle to engage all 20# of main drag and hold on! This method is specific to the Northeast region, but the TU6000CI4 is perfect for pitching baits all across the country to such species as redfish, tarpon, snook, mahi, mackerel, etc. Large inshore predatory species and small pelagics are in the reel’s sights for sure. Thanks to the CI4 Carbon body, the TU6000CI4 weighs in at a meager 18 ounces, giving you the ability to fish this reel for hours on end without added fatigue. Adding to the smoothness of the reel are 6 A-RB ball bearings, and a proprietary Hagane main gear that’s digitally drawn up and 3D printed to eliminate any flaws from cutting. The Shimano Thunnus CI4 TU6000CI4 Spinning Reel will fit just under 300 yards of 30# standard braided line on its CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool.
