I have a query about the Shimano Rarenium Ci4 4000. Have any of you actually used this reel and if so have you any comments?
Specifically, I was interested in how the line lay is compared to other similar reels, (the Shimano website doesn't mention the reel as having the 2 speed oscillation feature)? Also does it have a sealed drag, (like on the Technium for example)? On a similar note is it one of those reels that Shimano advise, (in the manual) as suitable for saltwater use. I realise that none of these reels are waterproof, but as you are probably well aware Shimano advise against saltwater use for some of their reels. The standard baitrunners for example.
I listed a similar query on Worldseafishing, but tonight there has been a major outbreak of bickering, so perhaps the main players are otherwise occupied! Of course I may be jumping the gun, they just may not have any information on the above reel.
Anyway, if you can assist please let me know.
Ps. If junior member refers to age (as opposed to number of posts), I am sorry to say that I am far from a junior member, unless you mean under 44!! I can't seem to amend this, is this down to my stupidity or is this a job for a moderator?
All the best,
