The Shimano Baitrunner OC BTR6000OC Spinning Reel gives anglers a choice of techniques – used from either the surf or boat, the Baitrunner OC 6000 will perform splendidly in either application. Here in the Northeast, anglers love this reel for snag-and-drop bunker fishing, where you run a weighted treble hook through a pod of bunker, then let your offering drop below the safety of the school where there’s trophy sized bass lurking, just waiting for an easy meal. Also used in chunking applications in the surf, the BTR6000OC uses the same baitrunner system of its more expensive cousins – simply flip the lever and your spool will be able to spin freely, then when a pickup is detected simply turn the handle to engage all 20# of standard drag. This reel is perfect for large stripers and blues, as well as redfish, snook and tarpon. If you choose, you can also use this reel for throwing plugs if you only feel like bringing one outfit to the beach, and the XT-7 graphite body is more than up to the challenge of a big saltwater predator. Featured on the BTR6000OC is the Varispeed Oscillation system, which utilizes an oval oscillation gear to make certain the line is laid perfectly evenly on your spool giving you a deadly accurate and long cast. The Shimano Baitrunner OC BTR6000OC Spinning Reel comes equipped with a CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool that’s braid ready, and can hold about 275 yards of standard 30# braided spectra.
