Designed for anglers who want all the reliability, durability, and quality of unrivalled Shimano Baitrunner technology, but who don’t want to pay the price tag, the Shimano Baitrunner ST RB is a perfect choice.

As the name suggests, the Shimano Baitrunner ST RB operates on Shimano’s famous Baitrunner system. For those who haven’t used it before, this is a lever that is located on the rear of the reel. By activating this lever, it allows the reel to operate in a controlled freespool. This enables any fish which takes your bait to be able to run freely with your line. You can then deactivate the lever to reengage your drag, allowing you to determine exactly when you’re setting your hook to play your catch. This is a system that is revered by expert and novice anglers alike and, if you’ve never used it before, it has the ability to revolutionise the way you fish.

The Baitrunner system from Shimano is one of the easiest to use on the market, which has made it a favourite for carp anglers worldwide, whether they are lifelong carp fishing fanatics or newcomers to the sport. The ST RB is no different.

The Shimano Baitrunner ST RB is manufactured from XT7 carbon which creates a strong and rigid housing for the reel’s mechanisms, ensuring that it can stand up to intensive use over an extended period of time.

The ST Rb reel boasts a uniquely designed spool with an angled spool lip which has been proven to prevent backlash and wind knots when you’re casting with a braided mainline. This also helps all line types to peel from the reel in small coils, which aids with accurate distance casting.

The Power Roller feature also helps to eliminate the risk of line twist, whether you’re fishing with a braided mainline or a monofilament line, and this really comes into play when you’re fishing with a line on the thinnest end of the spectrum.

The Shimano Baitrunner ST RB is also fitted with the brand’s Varispeed line lay technology which is a dual gear system – one oval and one square. This ensures that you experience parallel line lay each time you spool up.

The Baitrunner reel’s balanced double handle is fitted with Super Stopper II, which eliminates rearward back play when the reel is set in anti-reverse. DynaBalance removes reel wobble on the retrieve, too, and it ensures that all the power you push through your handle is directed into the gearing.

The Shimano Baitrunner ST RB comes in two sizes: 6000 and 10000. The smaller 6000 is the perfect reel for anglers who enjoy targeting medium sized carp, barbel, and tench. It also performs excellently for predator fishing for pike and zander.

The larger reel size; 10000 packs that little extra punch, and is primed for anglers whose target fish are on the larger end of the spectrum. Both reels are suitable for large and small waters alike and feature powerful 4.6:1 gear ratios. This ensures that the reel delivers plenty of power when you’re playing large fish, no matter if you chose the 6000 or the 10000.

All the stats indicate that the Baitrunner ST RB is an excellent reel at an unbelievable price, and not only does the reel perform exceptionally but it also looks stunning too. Keeping with the latest trends, the reel features understated graphics and has a sleek matt black finish. This ensures that it will look great sitting on any top-end carp rod.
