The Baitrunner has been one of New Zealands biggest selling reels, their versatility gives kiwi anglers one reel that will cover a number of applications!
The unique baitrunner system allows the fish to pick up and run with the bait, before the angler then strikes and sets the hook using the main drag of the reel preset to suit both line weight and target species.
They feature a replaceable spool clicker, vari-speed oscillation to make sure that you get a perfect line lay with braid and also features 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.
