:wackit: Isn't that the same as the Excense or is it just the metal thats the same?
I don't know much about the Excense to be honest (isnt that the reel that Mick bought after Vidar posted a link ??). But there are a few Shimano models available in the C14 now, which from my understanding is just a material substitution to reduce weight ?? I'm sure that someone else will know more, or correct me if i'm wrong about that ?Andy Mason said::wackit: Isn't that the same as the Excense or is it just the metal thats the same?

Yep. seen them Marc. Lovely. Only seen them in the smaller sizes though, and couldnt find any sources in this country. I've got high hopes for the Rarenium . . . cant believe how light it is, which is exactly what i wanted !!! :wackit: :wackit:Marc D... said:Thats a lully little reel Si', i've been considering one of the CI4 reels myself, namely the stradic,, not quite a fireblood but still lush,,,

I fekkin luvs it i do, honest...
Why underfill at all Si? Surely with 'decent' reels you can fill to the brim.......both my stradics and the VS are full, no wind knots either, different story with my old cardinal though and a couple of cheapies from tacklesmart (but mostly to do with the braid maybe?).Simon Lewis said:Just spooled her up with some fresh 15lb Powershot. Lovely. Bolted her onto the rod too . . . . . what a stunning light set-up !!!
I did massively underfill the spool though - perhaps i should've put a little more backing on ?? Is underfilling by about 3 or 4mm ok ??
I absolutely love it. I've got 3 spools of it (tried both blue & orange/yellow). I find it behaves really well, and feels superb to use. There's a thread on here somewhere with braid reviews on it, and i'm sure that Mick said that he found it a 'little' unruly . . . but i certainly havent.Darren Edwards said:si how do you find the power shot?im lookin for a good 15 lb low diam braid to go on my soron.
