Explore better bait fishing with the Shimano Baitrunner D reel

The Baitrunner D is the premier series of the famous Baitrunner collection, boasting the best features of previous Baitrunner reels, but combining them with cutting edge spin reel technology.

Featuring: * Secondary drag system – Allows the main drag to be disengaged with the flip of a lever and allows free spooling with the bail closed.

  • Propulsion® Line Management System – Incorporates a special lip design on the spool that allows the line to flow smoothly off of the spool during a cast.

  • Vari-Speed® oscillation (Aero on 12,000) – The oval-shaped oscillation gear produces an even spool speed

  • Cold-forged aluminium spool

Comes in 4,000 to 12,000


The 8,000 and 12,000 sizes open up a whole world of possibilities, such as casting and bait fishing for a variety of pelagic game fish, while the 4,000 and 6,000 sizes cater for those wishing to float a pilchard down a berley trail for snapper.

All Shimano Baitrunner D reels will double both as land based and boat reels but are ideal for beach fishing as you can click the Baitrunner on and not have to worry about your rod and reel being dragged into the water by a big fish.

Whether you’re a seasoned angler or just starting out, the 4 sizes cater to all skill levels. Available at your local Tackle World today.
