As ICAST rapidly approaches leaks keep on coming. The team at Bass Pro Shops let the cat out of the bag on this one last week.

With the success of the original Stradic CI4 and the gradual extension of X-Ship down Shimano’s spinning product lines most anglers had anticipated this release for quite some time.
