Shimano Baitrunner D including free Sufix line

The Shimano Baitrunner D is the premier range of the famous Baitrunner collection, boasting all the very best features of the previous reels, but combining them with the latest Shimano technology and design to deliver the ultimate Baitrunner. The larger 8000 and 12000 sizes open up a whole world of possibilities to anglers, such as casting and bait fishing for a variety of pelagic game fish, while the 6000 sizes cater for those wishing to float an unweighted pillie or strip bait down a berley trail aimed at snapper and 4000 size ideal for use with softbaits.

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.

The Shimano Baitrunner D series reels are offered in four sizes; the BTR4000D, 6000D, 8000D and 12000D.
