BAITRUNNER® reels

Carp and Specialist anglers have long reaped the rewards of using a Baitrunner.  Whilst being ideally suited towards a compact set up for smaller waters, they are also perfect for snaggy situations and floater fishing.  Add the greater spool capacity that the long cast offers and carp anglers really do have a Baitrunner for every situation.

There will be very few barbel and specialist coarse anglers who have not owned a Baitrunner.  There is no greater sound than the ticking of a Baitrunner to signal a take.  The ability to set two drags is particularly vital to predator anglers, one drag set to peel line off with feather weight resistance has certainly lead to a lot less dropped takes, while the main drag, set tight, engages at the turn of the handle and sets the hook firmly in position. 

Baitrunner CI4+ XTR-A Longcast

The first ever CI4 Baitrunner reel provides a massive weight saving bringing it into the high-end Big Pit performance casting category.
