Product Features

Fluid Drive 2 Gearing System:

The new Baitrunner OC features a fluid drive 2gearing system that utilizes a master gear to increase and make retrieval easy. The gear ratio is an important factor that every angler should consider when choosing a reel.

Baitrunner OC has a fluid drive 2gearing system, which is effective when it comes to retrieving. The reel gives the angler a chance to make a quick retrieve whenever the need arises. In fact, this is what makes many anglers to compare this reel to a race car.

Anti-reverse:

The Baitrunner OC comes with a super II anti-reverse stopper which comes with a one-way bearing whose job is to stop and eliminate back play when triggered. This is the kind of a feature every angler would be glad to have in his reel.

The super stopper can be turned off in special cases and allow for back reeling. The anti-reverse is designed with a hook set that prevents the roller from moving backward. It uses a roller bearing for immediate engagement and does not rely on a series of teeth as it is in the case of multi-stop.

This feature is important to an angler in two ways; it increases accuracy and allows the angler to cast it even further.

The propulsion line management feature makes the reel a must have tool for anyone who wants to get the best results when in both fresh and saline waters

Baitrunner System:

Baitrunner is one of the terms associated with Shimano, the feature has been around for many years and has greatly contributed to the success of Shimano's reels. In fact, many other reel manufacturers have copied the feature, but none of them has had as much success as Shimano.

Shimano has registered the term Baitrunner as his trademark, a thing that has forced companies that have copied the technology to use alternative names. Note that Shimano's Baitrunner consists of 120 components and that anglers are free to set their rods without worrying that they can be pulled in by fish since any fish that takes bait will obviously take the line.

This reel is superb and works like equipment that has specifically been fine tuned to perform its job.

The quality of the reel is high, and it guarantees you better castability, comfortable grip, reduced backlash, less friction a higher max drag, can be flipped instantly, better line lay and a wider range of setting. It can be used in both fresh and saline water and is ideal for both experienced and novice anglers.
