Shimano Medium Baitrunner CI4+ XT-B LC Reel. The Big (14000 spool) and Medium (5500 spool) Baitrunner CI4+ XT-B reels are replacing the old XT-A series. The reels come with a big list of features, containing Hagane Gearing, X-SHIP, Hi Speed Drag, X Protect, CI4+ body and rotor and of course the Baitrunner system for free spool properties. This reel is most popular for carp fishing (specimen carp) all over Europe. The Baitrunner system is ideal in use when the angler is fising on the bottom with lead and he needs the freespool facilities of Baitrunner. Size advice: SIZE MEDIUM (5500): all-round size, perfect for fishing up to 120 meters distance (casting), to fish from boat, to fish on smaller venues, to fish with lighter rods (2,75/3,00lb) SIZE BIG (14000): size for distance fishing / distance casting, using with heavier rods (3,25, INT), perfect for when big line capacity is necessary.
The HAGANE Drive Gear is produced by Shimano’s coldforging technology, without the need for additional machining. This delivers a longlasting smoothness, strength, lightness
and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads.
XShip is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano ARB roller bearings. This creates more stability.
The contact type triplelip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the first lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body. In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip where it makes contact with the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance. Without jeopardizing the ‘silky smooth rotation capacity’, the vital feature of STELLA SW, exceptional water resistance, has been achieved to withstand the crashing and splashing of waves and spray.
CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiffer than CI4 and is used on many highend Shimano reels to increase weight savings. Use of CI4+ for the body and rotor also delivers remarkable stiffness for better reel efficiency.
Hi Speed Drag
The "Hi-Speed Drag" is the fastest drag function ever featured on a Shimano reel. Only a very small turn on the drag knob will transit the drag settings from 'free spool mode' to the 'fight mode'.
Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust.
One Piece Bail
The onepiece bail wire has no gap for line to snag on during normal operation. Made of Stainless Steel, it reduces friction and allows the line to get onto the line roller quicker.
