Shimano Baitrunner XTB 5500 LONGCAST Surf Reel

The Shimano Baitrunner XT-B LC Reel is a total revamp of an all-time classic. The Baitrunner system enabled anglers to use a lever on the rear of the reel to disengage the drag - friction plates that prevent the spool from overrunning but lets it run when it’s pulled hard enough - so fish could take the line more freely when they bite and anglers could get a more positive hookset.
This reel comes fully-loaded with Shimano’s finest technologies, such as a large AR-C Spool with slow oscillation, which provides longer casting distances while preventing backlashes - line tangles on the reel - and wind knots - tangles resulting from too much slack while reeling in - from forming. Combined with Aero Wrap II, a worm gear oscillation system that ensures uniform line lay and winding shape, preventing loss of energy during casts, this provides the utmost casting distance.
The reel also features XShip, a system that provides two-point support of a larger pinion gear with four corrosion-resistant S A-RB ball bearings. This delivers gear stability, a smoother transfer of power and increased durability, boosting the efficiency of the reels, as their ultra-light handle rotation means less effort, more power and flawless rotation under heavy loads, meaning they remain smooth and offer peak performance for longer.
To assist with this, the gears of this Shimano reel have been redesigned to minimise friction as well as increase the transfer of power to the rotor from the long aluminium handle. This provides greater winding power and rotational power, or torque, making it easier to play fish and giving you more control over delivery.
The Big version of the Shimano Baitrunner XT-B LC Reel offers remarkable casting performance, making it an ideal reel if you’re looking to catch carp in larger waters, while the Medium version is an excellent choice if you want a reel of similar specification and quality for use on smaller waters where casting distance isn’t the most significant factor. Both Baitrunners are supplied with line reducers, which enable you to adjust the spool capacity to suit your preferences.

Baitrunner
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.

LONG CAST Surf
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.
