Rummage through the below link and pay particular attention to Enigmas posts regarding XTD.

I have been fishing with my XSC for the last 3years...maybe more...and have had 0 issues and wont change them for XTD as I feel it is unnecessary!

thanks for the reply. Ive also been looking at the xtb ci4 so i can use it as my ed sea reel, so i want to see if the people think the ci4 is wroth the extra price.

i have played with the xsc years ago and loved it, just want to know if the new xtd is better or if the xtb ci4 is wroth the extra money

Cost between XTB Ci4 vs XTD is more than just the use of Ci4 construction for weight saving.
Extra spool(s) supplied as well as line reducers so that you don't need 17km of line to fill the reels correctly
Forged aluminium main gear vs cast zinc is a big + for longevity
