Shimano Baitrunner OC including free Sufix line

The Baitrunner has deep roots in the New Zealand fishing scene. The OC release still contains a lot of the features that have made the Baitrunner a household name in this country, but also features advances that are going to take this iconic range of reels well into the future. Some of the upgraded features include a machined handle, a replaceable spool clicker, Varispeed Oscillation to provide a perfect line lay with Power Pro braid, and Propulsion Line Management to increase distance while casting. The Baitrunner lever moves towards the body to stop any accidental gear changes, and with three double-sided, shielded stainless steel bearings and an anti-reverse bearing, this range continues to dominate the New Zealand bait fishing reel market.

The series comes in a 4000, a 6000, an 8000 and a larger 12000 size and all feature the original Baitrunner system. This new range now come with a replaceable spool clicker, Vari-speed oscillation to make sure that you get a perfect line lay with Power Pro and other braided lines and also feature Propulsion Line management to give you that extra distance while casting.

The handles have been upgraded from the B series, while maintenance on the reels has been made a lot easier, with the inclusion of an easy access oil maintenance port. All of the models feature three double sided, shielded, stainless steel bearings and an anti-reverse bearing.
