Autumn 2012 is about to become an important season in the historic calendar of Australian Anglers because the latest release in Shimano’s Baitrunner range is set to be one of the most exciting releases in years. The Baitrunner OC or Oceania, has been specifically designed for Australia and Australian species, which means that anglers in Australia can look forward to a strong reliable product.
The Baitrunner has deep roots in the Australian fishing scene, having been first conceptualised right here on Australian shores. This latest release still comprises a lot of the features that have made the Baitrunner a house hold name in this country, but it also comprises advanced technologies that are going to take this iconic range of reels well into the future.
The series comes in a 4000, a 6000, an 8000 and a larger 12000 size and all feature the original Baitrunner system. This new range now come with a replaceable spool clicker, Vari-speed oscillation to make sure that you get a perfect line lay with Power Pro and other braided lines and also feature Propulsion Line management to give you that extra distance while casting.
The handles have been upgraded from the B series, while maintenance on the reels has been made a lot easier, with the inclusion of an easy access oil maintenance port. All of the models feature three double sided, shielded, stainless steel bearings and an anti-reverse bearing.
One major change for the legion of the original B series fans is the BAITRUNNER LEVER actually moves toward the body of the reel when you wind the handle and engage the drag and gearing system. This new upgraded modern series of BAITRUNNER OC REELS is going to show anglers why the Shimano Baitrunners are “THE” benchmark in this category.
