Don't get too carried away, it's only certain models at the moment. There are at least four "Stradics" in the current Shimano catalogue. I know that two of them (Stradic Ci4+ RA and Stradic GTM-RC) definitely do have anti-reverse switches and one (Stradic Ci4+ FB) does not. The other model is the Stradic FK. It's not exactly clear whether this model has an anti-reverse switch or not. Judging by its similarity to the Ci4+ FB, I doubt it. The biggest issue is that the website makes no mention of the Stradic Ci4+ FB not having an anti-reverse switch. Buy blind at your peril.I am aware that certain Shimano reels example the latest Stradics etc have NO anti reverse!! mg:. If so for me that's bad news .
