The Shimano Baitrunner 8000OC is a medium sized Baitrunner fishing reel making it ideal for stray-lining and live-baiting off the boat or casting from the rocks. This new range now comes with a replaceable spool clicker, Vari-speed oscillation to make sure you get perfect line lay with Power Pro and other braided lines, and Propulsion Line management to give you that extra distance while casting.
Not only have the handles been upgraded from the B series, but the Shimano Baitrunner 8000OC also features a Cold Forged spool for increased strength and durability and Shimano's Fluidrive II which increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort.
The Shimano Baitrunner 8000OC would have to be one of the most versatile, affordable bait fishing reels out and is without a doubt the one reel you must have next time you hit the water!
