I've gotten great use from a Battle 2000. A lovely small reel. I like a 2500 -3000 for my lure fishing. The battle is small for its number. I would guess that a 4000 would be like a shimano 3000

lowie69 from the forum here was selling an aernos he showed it to me when I was picking up a rod off him. Beautiful looking reel smooth as silk was sorely tempted!

Exage is a very good reel great value I found I use one myself

Will do shortcircuit going to pick it Up from Dans at the halfway next week.but will have to leave It under the tree till santy finishes. Looking forward to using it I use the exage at the moment & it's great reel.

I'll throw a few options into the pot.
Yes I know these don't support local shops but
A) they are cheaper than here
B) Shimano Europe offers a 2 year warranty versus 1year for UK and Ireland

Option 1
http://boddenangler.de/Shimano-Stradic-Ci4-_1

Option 2
http://boddenangler.de/Shimano-Rarenium-CI4-_1

I've friends that have both reels and they are a very good reel.

I've used boddenangler before. They will ship it for €12 and although I've never had call for after sales service the guy in there Lars is very helpful.

Good luck with your shopping
