Super Stopper II eliminates backplay
ARB shielded bearing protect from corrosion

Dyna-Balance technology balances rotor
Propulsion Line Management System
Lightweight and the power to stop big fish, the Shimano Thunnus C14 Spinning Reel takes a page from their bicycle division using carbon materials for high impact situations. Having the Super Stopper II anti-reverse in your hands provides the angler with instant hook setting power, while using a one-way roller bearing to eliminate back-play. ARB shielded bearings are coated to protect from unwanted salt or sand that increase corrosion resistance. Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement Spinning uses a special cold forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear to ensure on-going smoothness.
The Thunnus C14 is by far the sleekest out of previous models with Shimano's Dyna-Balance technology that nearly eliminates vibrations all together keeping the rotor balanced. To get successful, effective retrieves, the Fluidrive II does the job with it's a large master gear polished by means of a wrapping process. This reel also features the SR-Concept, combining Reliance with all other aspects of the S-Concept to keep fishing smooth, silent, and strong. Last, but not least, the Propulsion Line Management System has a lip design that permits longer casting distances while preventing backlashing and wind knots.
