the only noticeable difference is their weight difference. That was enough for me to go with the Ci4+ model

Have a 1000 FK and CI4+. The CI4+ just *feels* more refined,

the bail mechanism *feels* crisper, and of course the weight

savings are big.

   Yup. I have 2 ci4+ 2500FA series, one ci4+ 4000FB series, and a 2500fk, and I agree with the above totally.  jj

Not to steer you away from any stradic they are great reels as I own a stradic fk 2500 but you may want to look into the shimano nasci. I’ve been fishing one now and it’s a very similar reel for half the cost. I find they keep making the stradics more and more money each generation and they don’t add much to them compared to a lower end shimano. If weight is an issue by all means go for a ci4. But I believe the nasci 2500 and stradic 2500fk weigh the same. If I could do it over again I wouldn’t pay the extra $100for the stradic

Never fished an FK but have a couple Ci4+ and they're great.

I use my 2 Stradic 3000Ci4+ reels on a pair of St Croix Avid X 6'9"MLXF rods. That is why i choose the lightweight reel for this. It makes a great lightweight combo! I know that the regular stradic will "balance" better on some rods. 

I also REALLY like the newer model Pflueger Patriarch XT spinning reels! I own 2 of them also.
