Shimano Big Baitrunner LONGCAST

Big Baitrunner by name, bigger fish reel by nature. This is the definitive casting and big fish catching piece of kit. The most awesome reel for extreme range work, hauling big snapper from snag infested areas, or throwing baits out. The Long Cast has the capacity and the capability. It casts unlike any other reel in it’s category thanks to the tournament taper spool and Aero Wrap, cranks like a demon with more power to your elbow than an old fashioned mangle, it puts you in charge each and every time in any sticky situation. 

One of the most durable reels ever, the original Baitrunner now has Dyna Balance to eliminate vibration plus a Triangular Rotor that prevents flex and loss of power when big fish are being cranked under pressure. The famous Shimano Roller Bearing has been added, bringing the total bearing tally to the equivalent of 7. Super Stopper II means the anti reverse kicks into the clutch with zero play for instant action and hook setting.

Shimano Baitrunner reels are well known all over the world and for landbased fishing enthusiasts you cannot go past the Baitrunner long cast surf reel.

It features the Baitrunner mode in the original design with free spool adjustment in the rear of the reel and drag power adjustment in the front of the reel with the drag knob.

Power performance and reliability with this reel is right up 'there' featuring 5 ARB bearings, a roller bearing, machined aluminium handle, brass pinion gear and a cold forged drive gear. The gear ratio of 4.6:1 enables a handle retrieve per crank of 110cm and the enormous drag power of up to 14kg means stopping XOS snapper and kingfish in their tracks is a cinch.

Shimano Backbone Elite Surfcasting Rod 14ft 6inch 8-15kg 3pc

The classic Shimano Backbone Elite series receives a cool cosmetic enhancement for 2009 – a unique holographic fish scale finish.

The Spin Rods have been made specifically for New Zealand fishing conditions. And match up beautifully with the 6500B, 1200D and saragossa reels.

Match them up with Shimano’s TLD or Tyrnos 2 Speed reels and they become suitable for a variety of fishing styles, whether you’re into lure or live bait trolling for marlin or bottom bashing for reefies in deep water.

There are eight great rods to choose from in a variety of line classes and fittings. There are 10, 15, 24 & 37 kilo rods with fixed guides and roller tips, 15 and 24 kilo with standard tips (great for braid use), and fully rollered 15 and 24 kilo for the serious game fisher.

All models are built to take the knocks, with alloy gimbal Fuji Guides, and long fighting fore-grips make each battle with a big fish a pleasure.
