Never used the first 2 but I’ve got a stradic Ci4 for my bass fishing and it’s pretty damn good.
The only issue I’ve had with it was the line roller bearing got a bit crunchy but they cost peanuts to buy and are easy to change :thumbs:

Nothing Shimano.
Their constant changing of their models happens far to often for anything to be reliable for long term use.
Eg; even in the Stella range their constant changes have never succeeded in improving on originals.

A 3500-4000 size Daiwa Saltiga if you want a lifetime spinner, otherwise an Exist or Certate.

SHIMANO 4000 GTM RC

Had fish upto 27lb+ on them. Love mine.
I picked up some deeper spools and use them for a bit of deadbaiting at times.

They are currently on my 7ft spinning rods
