RARENIUM CI4+ FB Spinning

The use of CI4+ (Carbon interfused with polyamide) in the rotor and body of the new generation Rarenium CI4+FB spin reel series cuts down on weight without compromising strength in any way, delivering better performance and greater comfort during long casting sessions. A reel series of this stature has, naturally enough, X-Ship (a double bearing supported pinion gear and a larger cold-forged drive gear), as well as Floating Shaft II for reduced friction where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Six shielded SA-RB bearings and one roller bearing ensure every turn of the machined aluminium handle is as effortless as it can be. CF (Cold Forged) gears deliver a great all-round retrieve speed of 5:1 across the range. Line capacities are generous given the size of the reels, even moreso when spooled with fine diameter Power Pro braid. The presence of Aero Wrap II (a worm gear oscillation system) provides uniform line lay so there’s no loss of energy during a cast due to hills and troughs forming in the braid. The Rapid Fire Drags are all totally waterproof, and stopping power ranges from three kilos in the 1000FB, nine kilos in the 2500 and 3000, and up to a whopping 11 kilos in the 4000FB.

RARENIUM CI4+ FB FEATURES
Carbon Interfusion 4 (valence electrons) is a graphite body material that has been reinforced with carbon fibre. Lighter than Magnesium, yet strong enough to cope with the stresses of saltwater fishing.
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 situations.
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation; less effort and power giving ...
Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement Spinning Using a special cold forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear. Reels equipped with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement will retain their out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than be...
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 cast...
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 pr...
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new AR-C spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming....
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 sm...
S-Concept represents Shimanos 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 exc...
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...
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 wit...
