The Shimano Baitrunner D BTR12000D Spinning Reel doesn’t play around. This reel is used for big game, and is capable of taming tuna, dorado, wahoo, amberjack, and large tarpon. Key to this reel is the baitrunning switch, which when engaged lets the spool spin in a controlled freespool while the bail is closed. Simply turn the handle to engage the main drag system, and hold on! Probably used mostly for chunking bluefin and yellowfin up to 80#, the BTR12000 pumps out a powerful 25# drag, and features a very torqey 4.4:1 gear ratio – perfect for cranking down on stubborn predators. Importantly, the Super Stopper II system featured on this reel ensures you won’t have any back play when setting that hook, giving you added confidence on that all important swing. The CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool on the BTR12000D is braid ready, and can accommodate over 500 yards of standard 50# braid – more than enough to tangle with big angry fish. The Shimano Baitrunner D 12000D Spinning Reel also features Shimano’s proprietary Fluidrive II system, which adds a large polished master gear that, in addition to the 4 Shielded A-RB bearings, dramatically increases the total smoothness of this reel.
