Shimano Guys. Need Help

Recommended Posts

A few gift cards for Christmas. New ci4 or core51 and why? Most likely throwing weightless senkos,possibly used as an all around reel? Input will be greatly appreciated

Both are great reels for senkos and general use. There are more gear ratios in the CI4 line vs the core 50mg. The core is lighter in weight thanks to the magnesium frame. They look very similar from a color scheme standpoint. Either would work for your situation but I would probably snag the CI4 and save a few dollars to put towards other gear.

Cant go wrong with either one. I prefer smaller profiles and lighter weight so the core is the winner in my book...

If buying new get the ci4+, used then get a core for around the same price as the ci4+

One of the best features the + has is the option of the high gear model which I'm a huge fan of

Don't have neither but do have the non ci4 Chronarch. Casts light stuff great.

Love my 2 Chronarchs. So much so I decided to skip the Ci4+.

What reels do you use now?

I use a smoke, lews tour pro, and a revo s gen 2

I went to dicks sporting goods (near me) really disappointed on there in store selection. Wanted to handle the core and ci4 and you guessed it they don't carry those in store Period. The have the caenan and curado. And that's it. Super disappointed call the other 2 near me as well with the same result. Can't wait until bps come to jersey- hopefully by the end of this year. To make things worse I went online and they have only right handed models available

The reason I ask is that you will appreciate higher end reels a lot more if you've fished with lower priced ones.  I haven't used any of the reels you have but I went from a Citica E and 2nd Gen Revo SX to a Core 50 and from the first cast I said *@#^$%!  The core 50 was so smooth and effortless and a lot quieter too.  My metanium is a lot noisier than my Core 50 during casting and the Chronarch CI4 has basically the same casting system as the Metanium if that's a factor for you. If you are open to it TW has a reel demo program you might want to check out.
