Which CI4+ has which handle?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I'm planning on buying a Shimano Stradic Ci4+, and I wanted to know what kind of knobs the 3000 size has? I want the 3000 size because it weighs the same as the 2500 while having extra line capacity, but I prefer the smaller knobs. It's not clear to me by looking at the pictures in online stores. If you own a Ci4+ 3000, could you let know if it has the big knobs or small knobs?

 

Thanks,

TPK

Not sure, but if you end up with the 3000 and you don't like the knob, I will send you one off my 2500 as I replaced it with a Power R knob. Just let me know.

IIRC, the 3000 is the same paddle handle as the 2500.

 

Above 3000 moves to the T handle, if memory serves.

The 3000 size has the T knob.

The 2500 size has the small paddle knob.

I have both sizes. I prefer the T knob myself.

This. To my knowledge, ALL Shimano spinning reels are this way now. 

 

Fear not, you can buy a different paddle for about $5-10 and be on your way. I'm the same as you. I like the 3000 size spool but I'm not a fan of the T knobs.
