Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby The best reel I've ever owned I've been salt water fishing for over thirty years and have snapped plenty of lines. With this reel combo'd with an ugly stick and PowerPro Spectra Green Braided Fishing Line, I have not snapped a single line. That's from flukes to small sharks. July 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Satisfied Works great, smooth. Don't regret the purchase. I had it lined with power pro as well with a new rod. June 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby My new reel Very excited to try out the new reel. I have this reel on another rod and it works great for fishing off my boat. May 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby awesome best reel fights like a chap caught a 40 pound stripped bass. best reel April 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby why would you not get one? If you have never heard of this reel, then you have never really fished. I have had the same shimano baitrunner for twenty years, without servicing it, and it still gets it done. Every other reel on the market is trying to be this reel. The only real baitrunner out there. Got this new one, and guess what.......fights like a champ. Dont be foolish. If you need a reel and you have the money, this is it. February 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great feature Used it on the surf, bait fishing. Free spooling was a great option, just set the desired drag. Worked real well. Just used it so will see how durable it is over time. October 7, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent For Live Linning Great Reel Just Set the Drags When Fish Hits Just Start Reeling. July 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5áby Well worth the cost Wanted a reel that I could use for carp fishing. The Shimano Baitrunner was a great choice. It works well with the style of fishing I am currently using. It is very easy to set up and the freespool system works well. June 29, 2012
