Toronto Sportsmen’s Show Tackle Porn: Shimano Stradic CI4

Throughout the entire Toronto Sportsmen’s Show I’ve snapped up hundreds of shots of different gear. I wanted to put them together into a few posts of “Tackle Porn”. As in shots of fishing gear that’s sure to get you excited! Get your bibs ready for some drool!

Shimano Stradic CI4

CI4 stands for Carbon Interfusion with the 4 referring to the number of electrons in the Carbon atom. Ultimately, this means CI4 is reinforced Carbon Fiber.

It is over one and a half times stronger than our normal XT-7 graphite and is over 20% lighter. Because it does not contain metal, it is impervious to rust.

So, as a result of its strength and weight, we can create an extremely lightweight reel with very precise tolerances.

Price: about $200

Behold The Labyrinth Aquarium

We’ve covered some pretty awesome aquariums in the past, but this multi-level multi-globe labyrinth aquarium from Optulent Items is just amazing!

The Labyrinth Aquarium

This very innovative and rare aquarium is offered in three colors. The tables are produced in cherry, black or carbon fiber and they conceal the rare filtration and lighting components. Fish swim freely throughout the entire aquarium. Designed for tropical freshwater fish. The table is optional. Filters and all equipment still included if purchased without table.

Your aquarium includes silk plants, 3 lights, filters, air pumps and cleaning equipment. The 3 rare lights are doughnut shaped and are placed underneath the black central hoods. They include programmable timer plugs which allow you to set when the lights turn on and off.

We set up installation if desired.

– Made of Lucite acrylic aquarium bowls, powder coated aluminum legs
– Height ( 54″)
– Width ( 51″)
– Depth ( 42″)

All that for the low price of $6,500.00 USD, but you get free shipping so why not!
