The Shimano Thunnus CI4 TU8000CI4 Spinning Reel is an amazing fully multi-purpose reel – you can use it with deadly efficacy in big surf applications, inshore trophy hunting, and light bluewater pelagic fishing. The lightweight CI4 body cuts unnecessary weight, giving you a much more agile feeling reel that’s fishable for hours on end. This reel is widely used here in the Northeast for snag and drop bunker style fishing, as well as tossing pitch baits at schoolie sized tuna – the reel’s primary function. The spool tension is fully adjustable thanks to a separate drag knob on the back of the reel, and a Dartainium II Drag washer will make the main drag sing to the tune of 20#. You’ll enjoy targeting trophy sized stripers and redfish, snook, tarpon, small yellowfin and bluefin tuna, mahi, king mackerel, and more with your TU8000CI4. We sell many of these reels during the spring striper run along Long Island’s south shore, and our customers keep coming back for more! The TU8000CI4 is an unbelievably smooth reel, thanks in part to 6 A-RB ball bearings, as well as the state-of-the-art Hagane gearing system, which features a main gear that’s been digitally drawn up and 3-D printed to eliminate any micro-flaws that come from cutting. The Shimano Thunnus TU8000CI4 Spinning Reel comes equipped with a heavy duty CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool that’s braid ready, and will accommodate 300 yards of standard 50# braid – more if you’re running a small diameter braid like Samurai or PowerPro Maxcuatro.
