BAITRUNNER OC Spinning
Autumn 2012 is about to become an important season in the historic calendar of Kiwi anglers because the latest release in Shimano's Baitrunner range is set to be one of the most exciting upgrades in years with it's Baitrunner OC or Oceania now on tackle store shelves.
The Baitrunner has deep roots in the Kiwi fishing scene and this latest release still comprises a lot of the features that have made the Baitrunner a house-hold name in this country, but it also comprises advanced technologies that are going to take this iconic range of reels well into the future.
The series comes in a 4000, a 6000, an 8000 and a larger 12000 size and all feature the original Baitrunner system. This new range now come with a replaceable spool clicker, Vari-speed oscillation to make sure that you get a perfect line lay with Power Pro and other braided lines and also feature Propulsion Line management to give you that extra distance while casting.
The handles have been upgraded from the B series, while maintenance on the reels has been made a lot easier, with the inclusion of an easy access oil maintenance port. All of the models feature three double sided, shielded, stainless steel bearings and an anti-reverse bearing.
This new upgraded modern series of BAITRUNNER OC REELS is going to show anglers why the Shimano Baitrunners are "THE" benchmark in this category.

|Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during the cast while pr...|
|This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create sm...|
