Lightweight

I used the 8000 size on some large fish and it handled them no problem. The drag is smooth and it's very lightweight.
I used the baitrunner and that too worked great.

Very Smooth Reel

Purchased the 8000 Ci4. Very good reel, excellent fishability. Just returned from Mexico, I used the reel for surf fishing with no luck; however it cast very well. I will likely purchase the 12,000 for surf fishing because after fishing from boat with this reel I believe a large fish might spool ya. The bait running function worked flawlessly caught at number of Serria Mackerel and couple of Cabria using live bait from the boat. Both the main drag and bait running drags worked very well in my opinion. My only concern is line twisting.
Had to cut off about 20 yards after 3 days of fishing.
