Shimano Baitrunner 4000D

The Shimano Baitrunner spinning reels have earned their reputation as durable and versatile spin fishing tools. The BaitRunner feature is actually a second drag system on the rear of the reel which allows the angler to fish with an adjustable tension free spool with a closed bail, making these reels excel at live bait and chunk fishing. In order to engage the waterproof main front drag, all you need to do is turn the handle or manually flip the Baitrunner lever on the rear of the housing. The Baitrunners feature three ball bearings, aluminum spools, and graphite housings. Shimano redesigned its classic BaitRunner Spinning Reel to now feature the lastest in spinning reel technology with a modern and compact design. The BTR D series reels are offered in four sizes; the BTR4000D, 6000D, 8000D and 12000D.
