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.

An $8.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

Nice Combo
Was going to purchase rod and reel separately but stumbled onto this combo for only $10 more than the cost of the reel alone! The Shimano reel is smooth as glass casting and retrieving. The rod is light enough for small pan fish (whiting, croakers, etc.) but with enough back bone to handle the big fish. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
ProsNice quality, great value, light weight.

Very nice, great features, great design and workmanship. Highly functional, smooth, yet strong and durable.
Love this combo. It cast great, it has a great bait runner system, good drag. Big handle for a solid grip, the handle on the rod is wrapped for a secure grip. Love it, Will probably buy another one soon. Can't say enough about this setup. Much nicer than other manufactures products. Shimano is no doubt a leader and innovator in the fishing industry.

Great Combo
This is an amazing combo for surf, jetty, and pier fishing or anywhere that you need that extra reach in casting. The reel is by far the smoothest reel I've owned. It is also the smoothest and toughest drag. First fish I caught with this was a 42 inch, 33lb black drum and it handled it like nothing for over 30 mins on 17lb test mono.
Prossuper smooth baitfeeder is nice to have great drag
Consnone so far

Could I also take this inshore and to the peir?
1 Answers
Hello John, this would be a perfect set up for pier fishing but may be a little to long for fishing inshore from a boat.

Can you only use live bait for it and what is the variety of size and species this rod can handle?
1 Answers
You could use lures and soft baits as well as live baits on this combo. This combo can endure a lot of what the surf fishing experience provides. Target species in the NE areas would be Striped Bass, Bluefish, Flounder, smaller Drum fish and much more. The SE regions could use this for Snook, Red fish, Speckled Trout.
