Baitrunner is the Bomb
This rod and reel combo is outstanding- King mackerel slayer! Quality reel was my focus- I fish the gulf coast piers and just offshore: Baitrunner feature performs perfectly with live bait fishing as well as trolling. I had some questions about the rod and customer service responded promptly via email to me- yes; it is a one piece rod, quality at an affordable price-
ProsSee above and- Baitrunner dual drag system ideal for live bait fishing. Quality Shimano product- i still use the first version Baitrunner reel I bought when these things came out- must be 30 years old now and only recently had it in to the shop for a tune up- this new 8000 D version is ideal for Kings , bug bull reds , etc. Rod is economical with quality features-
ConsOnly con is that I'm not out there right now fishing with this combo
