Great all around Surf Reel
March 24, 2016
I own 3 different sizes of the baitrunner (8,6 and 4K) and love them all. I use the 8k for chunking bait and the 6k when i am not sure if i will be tossing lures or want to sit back and relax with some bait. Some say the spool size might be a bit small but if you use braid in the 25 lb class it fits plenty. Hopefully Shimano never discontinues this amazing reel, i doubt they will.

THE surf bait reel
March 10, 2015
I've been a Baitrunner user since high school, and still have two of the 4500Bs that I use regularly. I'm steadily upgrading my 4500's to the 6000Ds as I like them and the others have been in service for almost 10 years. I've never had a problem mechanically with this reel, and with annual maintenence and washing with fresh water thoroughly after each use, I don't think I will ever have problems. I use this reel with 30 lb Power Pro super slick and it'll catch just about anything in the east coast surf. If you are on the fence about moving to Shimano or you have never used a baitrunner, you need to give this reel a shot. There is nothing like looking over and seeing your rod bent over and hearing the baitrunner screaming!

An all around well built and reliable reel
December 7, 2014
have used this reel for strippers in New England and drum in TampaBay.The bail handels braided line with 0 problems and the bait drag and reel drag are very smooth.I owned a 3500 before I bought the 6000.They are my favorite reels.
Prosthe bail picks up braided line every time with out getting jammed in the side of the roller unlike competetors reels.great reel for live or any bottom bait and is so sensitive it works when a crab is trying to steal your bait....
