I own this and the Quantum Smoke PTs inshore for my fishing Kayak and the CI4+ is my favorite. I have gotten spoiled by the weight (or lack of..). Perfect for repeated casting in my kayak.

by 2CAPHISH The best reel I've owned.
I love this reel. It's a really good casting reel. The 1st time I used it i caught my biggest brook trout. 19/1/2" 3 lb 14oz. The fish got into some swift water. He was pulling drag. I was able to adjust the drag with ease and was able to land him. 2 weeks later I caught 2 more citation brook trout. If you're looking for a quality reel this is the 1!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by tsepty Shimano Stradic FA 3000 CI4+
I got this reel for my drop shot setup. The reel look really good, and was very light but it make a strange noise like something was rubbing inside the case. It really bother me. I read the forums and a lot of people complain about this noise. I got also a Shimano Stradic 2500FJ who has the same internals but has an aluminium case. To my surprise the same noise show up on FJ. After reading more forums, with the same complains, I got some some possible reasons : not lubed well, bad bearings. To be honest my first thought was "junk", but after taking this fishing I was totally amazed. This reel is amazing casts very far (I had a shimano stellus drop shot rod and fluorocarbon line - sunline shooter 7lb). So i changed my mind from "junk" to "amazing" but still I could not have confidence in it because of the noise. At first I relubed the reel, after that was much smoother and quiet (so it's true, it is not properly lubed from factory (at least the ones I got) and is not made from japan anymore), but the main noise did not go away.
So I did replace ALL my bearings with the one I trust, ceramic bearings orange seal #7 (kit #FR-240C-OS LD) from bocabearings,
also updated the drag to a shimano carbon drag, and replaced the handle bushings with 2 bearings (4x7x2.5mm Ceramic Ball Bearing).
Now, the noise went away, and you wouldn't believe how smooth this reel is,unreal that is, it just make me take this rod and start fishing and never stop .... this reel is now mind blowing !!!
