The Shimano Ultegra's CI4+ construction reduces its weight, making it easier to generate rod speed for distance casting. It boasts a 2-speed slow oscillation line lay, AR-C spool, and Hi-Speed Drag for better casting. The reel's Cold Forged HAGANE gearing and X-Ship ensure powerful winding, while 5 Stainless A-RB bearings plus a Shimano Roller bearing provide unbeatable smoothness. The Ultegra also features X-Protect technology to keep the reel's inner parts protected from water and dirt. With a G Free Body and Parallel Body design, the Ultegra CI4+ allows for long, accurate casting without fatigue. Its compact body design adds to its lightweight feel, making it an ideal surf casting reel.

Product Technologies:
Hagane Gear

The HAGANE Drive Gear is produced by Shimano's coldforging technology. without the need for additional machining. This delivers a longlasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads.


XShip is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano ARB roller bearings. This creates more stability.

C14 Plus

C14+ is an advanced version of the original C14. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiffer than C14 and is used on many highend Shimano reels to increase weight savings.  Use of C14+ for the body and rotor also delivers remarkable stiffness for better reel efficiency.


The contact type triplelip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the first lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body. In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip where it makes contact with the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance. Without jeopardizing the 'silky smooth rotation capacity', the vital feature of STELLA SW, exceptional water resistance. has been achieved to withstand the crashing and splashing of waves and spray.

G Free Body

G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.

Parallel Body

The Parallel Body feature implicates that the spool is lined out parallel to the rod. This results in the reduction of line touching the rod and subsequently this increases the casting distance.

Hi Speed Drag

The "Hi-Speed Drag" is the fastest drag function ever featured on a Shimano reel. Only a very small turn on the drag knob will transmit the drag settings from free spool mode' to the fight mode.'

Aero Wrap II

Aero Wrap and the advanced Aero Wrap Il is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds. This provides superb uniform line lay to reduce loss of energy during the cast. Aero Wrap Il is considered one of the best line lay systems in the world.
