Not a sentence you are used to hearing!  Thunnus takes a page from Shimano's Bicycle division using Carbon materials in high impact situations. Thunnus CI4 is up to 7 ounces lighter than its predecessor without sacrificing any power. Due to new drag systems for the Main Drag and the Baitrunner drag Thunnus CI4 is the most efficient live bait spinning reel on the market with unmatched adjustability for fishing any bait in any condition as well as the smooth stopping power that this generation of Thunnus will be known for.
