The Shimano Baitrunner D BTR4000D Spinning Reel is the smallest entry into the storied Baitrunner line, but don’t let the size fool you – this reel is responsible for many a slob in its day! Key to this reel, is the unique baitrunner switch – which when engaged, will let the spool spin freely (controllable with a separate drag knob at the back of the reel) until you turn the handle to engage the standard drag system. This allows you to fish this reel in the same way a conventional reel works – perfect for surf anglers who use bait instead of plugging. Simply toss your offering into the suds, engage the baitrunner switch and wait for the strike! Anglers here in the Northeast traditionally use this reel for light back bay bassing, but it’s widely used across the country wherever bait fishing is the preferred technique. The features don’t end at the baitrunner switch however, as the BTR4000D comes equipped with Shimano’s patented Fluidrive II system which is a large polished master gear that improves meshing and gives you an insanely smooth retrieve. The CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool of the BTR4000D is braid ready, and can accommodate over 200 yards of standard 20# braided spectra. Also featured on the Shimano Baitrunner D BTR4000D Spinning Reel is the Propulsion Line Management system which, through rigorous testing, improves both your casting distance and accuracy while reducing wind knots and backlash.
