  • SR® one-piece bail wire
  • Power Roller® III

  • For mono, fluorocarbon, or braid

Super lightweight CI4 frame and rotor (aluminum on 12000 model) makes the Thunnus 7–10 ounces lighter than previous models! Baitrunner technology lets you feed line with the bail closed. Other features: Paladin® Gears, Propulsion® Line Management System, SR® one-piece bail wire, Power Roller® III, Direct Drive Mechanism, oversized Septon® Grips, waterproof drag with Dartainium® II cross carbon washers, and six shielded A-RB® ball bearings plus Super Stopper® II. For mono, fluorocarbon, or braid.

These reels let you control delicate live bait more precisely. Feed line with the bail closed, allowing your bait to move naturally with the current, or the fish to run without resistance on the pickup. Then, slam the hook home!

Line recovery in inches per handle turn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality This is the best multi-purpose bait-runner you can by for the money. If you are on the edge, comparing this to the Shimano Baitrunner D, don't look back. This reel reel will not leave you wanting more. June 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight I used the 8000 size on some large fish and it handled them no problem. The drag is smooth and it's very lightweight. I used the baitrunner and that too worked great. September 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Smooth Reel Purchased the 8000 Ci4. Very good reel, excellent fishability. Just returned from Mexico, I used the reel for surf fishing with no luck; however it cast very well. I will likely purchase the 12,000 for surf fishing because after fishing from boat with this reel I believe a large fish might spool ya. The bait running function worked flawlessly caught at number of Serria Mackerel and couple of Cabria using live bait from the boat. Both the main drag and bait running drags worked very well in my opinion. My only concern is line twisting. Had to cut off about 20 yards after 3 days of fishing. April 23, 2011

A: 
Almost all spinning reels, including the Thunnus Ci4 lineup, are reversible. Just unscrew the crank, unscrew the cap on the opposite end, and reverse both of them.
