Shimano Baitrunner - Thunnus 12000F Ci4

Versatility is the hallmark of Thunnus reels: cast plugs, drift live bait, slow troll and more, all in a durable, Baitrunner-equipped offshore spinning reel.

For anglers looking for a larger-capacity reel that fishes live bait with ease, the new Thunnus spinning reels have an aluminum body and rotor to provide maximum strength and smoothness to handle any saltwater fishing scene. 

Whether it is stray-lining, live-baiting or casting poppers from the bricks for trophy sized snapper and kingfish or feeding a big fresh bait down a burley trail - the robust Thunnus Ci4 series is the baitrunner aficionado’s dream.

Built for larger saltwater species the range fields three sizes (4000, 8000 and 12000) which covers every inshore and light-medium offshore application imaginable.

Featrures include lightweight, metalic blue CI4 body and rotor, Propulsion Line Management System, Power Roller II, One-Piece Bail, aluminium spool, baitrunner function and screw-in handle assembly with an ergonomic Septon grip.

VARISPEED - Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent castability and manageability.

PROPULSION LINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM - The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion spool lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off of the spool in smaller loops during the cast which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts with less friction. The Propulsion spool also utilises a long stroke design to further enhance the casting distance. Furthermore, there is less bouncing of the line on the spool lip like on a standard spinning spool. Because of the unique shape of the Propulsion spool, the line flows consistently off of the spool. So, with a standard spool, friction alternates from heavy to light as the line slaps the spool lip. This causes backlash and inconsistent line speeds. The Propulsion spool lip provides consistently light friction to overcome these situations.

PALADIN GEAR DURABILITY ENHANCEMENT - Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement Spinning Using a special cold forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear. Reels equipped with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement will retain their out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than before. In fact, testing has shown that this combination is more durable than an all-stainless steel drivetrain while maintaining the smoothness that Shimano is famous for. 

CI4 - Carbon Interfusion 4 (valence electrons) is a graphite body material that has been reinforced with carbon fibre. Lighter than Magnesium, yet strong enough to cope with the stresses of saltwater fishing.
