Shimano's Baitrunner D incorporates all of the latest technology and gives you the confidence of a legendary drivetrain and auto-return Baitrunner feature as well as better castability, better line lay, less backlash, wind knots or tangles, less friction on the line, larger, more comfortable grips, a higher max drag as well as a wider range of Baitrunner settings than its predecessors.

Sea Striker Beach Runner surf rods are built with a graphite tubular blank for strength and sensitivity. Premium graphite reel seats feature stainless steel hoods. Aluminum oxide guides and tips are perfectly spaced and sized for long casts. Cork tape grips are perfect for surf fishing needs.

Needed some new flathead catfish rods. I dont like bait casters for catfishing and love the bait runners. Onsale the rod is pretty much free. Would make a nice striper setup aswell. Will be buying more

Just got this today on time delivery and everything arrived in working order. Put it all together and the reel feels great nice and smooth. The rod action feels good also can't wait to get to the beach and test this thing out. I am going to follow up with a review once I get a fish on the end of this rod

Awesome deal for this combo

Pretty much getting the rod for free. Reel is butter smooth. Rod we shall see after the first run at the surf. But overall looks good. Reminds me of the okuma series of rod or the bass pro brand off shore surf rods.
  • Good deal

This combo will give you the casting distance required to reach fish breaking way out there, but also has the awesome bait runner feature. This means you can fish with plugs and bait with no change in gear necessary.

This is my 2nd bait runner both paired with 10ft Tsunami Air waves! The best real on the market for chunking bunker for stripers and bluefish!

Great surfcasting setup for the money
July 22, 2018
Reel casts a mile and looks and feels more expensive than it is. Rod isn't very sensitive but it's cheap so thats expected, but it's real strong considering the price. Has no problem launching large plugs for striped bass. I noticed nobody else complained of this but the rubber grips on the rod reek like a tire factory. I wash my hands multiple times when I'm done but still reek like pepboys. The smell gets on everything. Hopefully it'll fade in time
  • Great rod and reel for the money
  • The rod is cheap so that worrys me a little if I hook up to a large blue or striper but it feels strong so hopefully it is. The grips reeking like a rubber factory is the biggest downside of the rod. It's insane how strong the smell is
