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.

Awesome deal for this combo
November 30, 2019
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.
ProsGood 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
ProsGreat rod and reel for the money
ConsThe 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

Nice Combo
July 31, 2017
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.
ConsNone

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.

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

Would you put the line on the reel?
1 Answer
Yes, mono is free and braid you would just need to purchase but spooling would be free, just let us know.

Does the fishing rod comes with return guarantee, and ill cast far and hold a huge bluefish. Also whats the perfect line for it .
1 Answer
If you are not satisfied for any reason you may return new and unused items in the original box with all accessories within 30 days for an exchange or refund to the credit card account charged, less any shipping fees incurred by the seller or purchaser. This rod will work perfect for big blues. The reel is recommended for 50 lb test braided line. It will hold 290 yards of 50 lb braid.

Drag max Overall length when broken down for airline travel Can combo be used in boat rod holder
1 Answer
Unfortunately, we do not have this combo in stock to measure. The max drag is 20#. It is a surf combo, so it is not really designed for boat use. It is too long.
