EFTTEX Awards 2014 - Best New Fixed Spool Reel

Shimano Rarenium CX4+

Features a body frame built from Shimano’s exclusive CI4+ composite. This reduces the weight dramatically compared to metal bodied reels, yet still retains the strength and stiffness required to ensure the internal gears retain their integrity when under pressure.

The inclusion of a Magnumlite CI4+ rotor not only reduces weight further, it produces an ultra light rotation which improves the winding sensitivity, making the Rarenium CI4+ a superb lure fishing reel.

All models combine Shimano’s exclusive X-Ship gearing with six Shielded A-RB bearings. This produces ultra-smooth performance combined with maximum winding efficiency. The relatively slow 5.0:1 and 5.2:1 gear ratio delivers excellent torque for anglers fishing for larger species.
