Hit the water with my newest high end Japanese UL combo. Rod- Shimano Soare Ci4+ S408UL-S Reel- Shimano Soare 500s Line- Sunline FC Flourcarbon 2lb line. What a fun combo! Great times!

It really is a beautiful setup. Shimano makes an incredible product. Maybe if I would have purchased a quality setup like this instead of a Pflueger spinning reel I might not have gotten frustrated with the twisted lines / knots and gave up on spinning gear. grin

Do you have any issues with the fluorocarbon? I tried using 6 lb. pline once and had to cut it off the reel the first day because the memory was terrible. I'm not sure how you guys get away with using 2 lb. test. 4 lb. doesn't hold up very well for me in those creeks I fish.

I have no issues with the 2-4 lbs Sunline FC Sniper line as far as memory goes. I nice tough flourocarbon line.

Wanted to add a few more to show the true small size of this combo. Truly has to be experienced in person for the full effect. Lol.
