The new and improved Shimano Big Baitrunner XTB Long Cast Surfcasting Reel is back and fully stocked with the best of Shimano technologies. It features a large AR-C spool with slow oscillation in combination with the Aero Wrap II line lay system. This ensures maximum distance casting performance. The X-Ship system is also included to ensure a smooth power transfer and stability or the gears thanks to the two-point support of the pinion gear by ball bearings.
All 4 ball bearings are shielded A-RB for increased durability and the gears are redesigned to minimise friction and increase power transfer from the long aluminium handle to the rotor. This delivers more torque and winding power making fish playing easier and delivers more control. The big size, with its perfect casting performance, is perfect for beach casting where distance is everything.
Aluminium Cold Forged Spool
These spools provide strength and durability over diecast aluminium or graphite spools.
Aero Wrap II Oscillation System
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 providing longer casts than other oscillation systems. So, casting distance increases with less effort required.
Shielded Anti-Reverse Bearings
These bearings have been through the same process as the A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings' rotation.
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with the S-ARB bearings and integrating bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation; less effort and power giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.
