Ok so i am getting alot of people asking which Stradic to buy
The CI4 and FJ share many high quality features , such as :
Paladin gears, Fluid Drive , S concept , S-ARB bearings, Aero Wrap 2, Water proof drag, Propulsion Line Management and more
where the differences are ,is the FJ has X-SHIP and aluminum rotor and side plates, the CI4 has CARBON INTERFUSION rotor and side plates(more or less carbon fibre like F1 cars).
the Ci4 weighs in at 7 oz compared to 9.2 on the FJ . It is intended more for finesse techniques like drop shotting, shaky heads, etc
If you want a reel more for power techniques like skipping trees or thick weed lines then the FJ is the reel due to metal rotor and side plates and mainly X-SHIP
X-SHIP uses a large diameter drive gear and moving pinion gear closer to the center of the drive gear which provides 20% more power. It also supports the pinion with 2 ARB bearings to keep reel smooth under load
