New Shimano Baitrunner 4000D spinning reel review

This is a short review of the Shimano Baitrunner 4000D spinning reel. The reel has been out for over 6 years, but I just got it 2 days ago. I bought to use for surf fishing (for a backup reel to my stradic Ci4).

It has a baitrunner feature which lets you free-spool at the switch of a button. There’s a rear drag for the free spool as well.

The old bait runner choked when it comes to big fish. . I how the new model had better disc drag

Mister_Nattie says:

I have the 8000 size, I use it for surf fishing also. Its really good for bait fishing where you can use the baitrunner feature.

James Hart says:

Those are nice reels I have the Daiwa version. Very good for static bait fishing.

I picked up the 8000 series for shark and rays in So Cal. Hoping to get it wet next weekend.

Have u done surf fishing recently?

TJ TJ says:

awesome reel. The live liner is great for line more loose lines. If you need to leave the reel for a while flick the live liner and you won’t lose it to big fish. Great multipurpose reel.

Gianni Enne says:

What happened to the Daiwa BG reels – do you not like those anymore?
