Awesome reel for offshore and inshore
Ultimate Snapper Reel.
July 28, 2014
If you were only allowed 1 reel for Snapper fishing in Victoria Australia the Baitrunner D 8000 or 12000 would be it. The Shimano Baitrunner D series Reels are the Kings of the seas during our Snapper season, This statement would be shared by any seasoned Victorian Snapper Angler, it is also a fashion crime to be seen without one as you would definitely be the odd man out!
ProsThis Reel is a gift from the fishing Gods!

Smooth durable performance
July 8, 2014
I couldn't be happier with the 6000D after several outings. So far everything has performed seamlessly. The rear to front drag transition is an awesome feature. I just ordered a second combo of Star Rods Handcrafted Live Bait and the Shimano Baitrunner D.

8000D Works For Me
June 4, 2014
I have been using the Baitrunner 8000D since it came out a few years ago and find it to be the best of all worlds. It is light enough for traveling, smooth operation for surf casting with enough drag for fish up to 40 lbs. only because I have not caught anything larger from shore. There is enough line capacity using Power Pro Braid 50 lbs.. This real has performed flawlessly every year with only minor care after each use.
ProsI liked this real so much I purchased a second real for my brother. Great value!

The st croix legend surf 7' new model â€¦â€¦ would that team up with the 4000 or would it be to small? Lure / spinners salt and some freshwater fishing are what I would use this for.
That rod and reel should pair up together great. A 4000 size reel is generally the size that I would put on a light saltwater and freshwater rod.

I would like to put one of these onto a St croix Legend 7' spinning rod what size would you recommend for size / balance etc?
I would most likely go with the 4000 size, but that also depends which Legend you are using because there are a few different sizes. For inshore rods, I would definitely go with the 4000.

What is the difference between Baitrunner OC and D series?
The D series has one more ball bearing. Other than that the only real difference is the color of the real.

Can you use 20lb braided line on the 6000D, or is the minimum 30lb?
Hello Brian. You can absolutely use 20 pound line on that reel. The numbers you see in the descriptions are merely to give you an idea of how much line each size reel will hold. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions!

does the lever on the back allows the real to free spool and than when a strike occurs you just flip the lever to engage
Hello John. When you get a hit, you simply crank the handle and that sends the lever forward and disengages free spool allowing the spool to operate normally. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions!
