The most popular specimen carp fishing reels in Europe, Shimano’s Baitrunner range is all about catching perfection. The XTB reels come in two sizes, the all-rounder Medium reel, which is great for fishing with light tackle on smaller venues, and the Big reel, which is all about distance casting, heavy rods, and hauling in those large doubles.
With a C14 carbon body, the Baitrunner reel range is crafted for durable performance, and designed to deliver a smooth, efficient, hassle free angling experience that will bring you the results you want in style, wherever you’re fishing, and whatever size of carp you’ve spent your time stalking.
Supplied with an extra cold forged aluminium spool, the Baitrunner is a range that’s all about quick changes, and tackling up to make the most of a situation, while waterproof drag means you can wade into the water for those extreme casting situations without worrying about damaging your reel’s workings, giving you the best chance of getting your bait where it needs to be, and catching that elusive specimen.
These reels are ideally suited to fishing leads off the bottom, a tactic that’s proven itself time and again where big carp are concerned, and by offering two different sizes, Shimano have made it as easy as possible for anglers to find a quality fishing reel that suits their angling style, and is targeted to deliver their ambitions. Fairly priced for the craftsmanship and performance that’s packed into these Baitrunners, the more experienced carp angler could benefit from the full range of versatility offered by investing in both the Big and Medium Baitrunner XTBs, each of which comes with a spare spool, and features two speed Aero Wrap II line lay, providing perfect presentation on all venues, and in all conditions.
Invest in the best, and pick up Europe’s favourite tackle choice this season.
