I want to buy this reel for bass fishing, i like that its super light and apperently casts a "mile". If anyone has this reel and could give me a review on it that would be great. I like to run 8-10LB fluro because 50% of the time i use wacky rigged senkos or use crank baits, so please tell me what kind of line you use on this reel ty
I've owned all three recent stradics. The Ci4, last years Stradic FI, and the new Stradic FJ. The new FJ I've only had for this season but it's signifigantly smoother retrieving than the other two. And the FI I liked much better than he Ci...the ci has a soft frame and feels flimsy when fighting fish...the frame feels like it flexes under a load.
IMHO it's not worth the weight savings...I throw fluoro all the time and prefer the new FJ by quite a bit. Hope that helps.

ya thats what im worried about, i really would hate to buy this reel to find that every other time i cast i get bird nested and have to re spool
My FJ is smoother than my CI4's. On my CI4 2000 I use 10# braid and it has caught snook and reds of over 20#'s without a hitch. I wouldnt use 8 or 10# floro or mono on any smaller than my 4000 size though due to spool diameter.
