Spin or conventional????????

SHIMANO BAITRUNNER JUST OVER $100.00 BUT WORK GRATE FOR BAIT FISHING AND CAN TAKE A BETTING.
IF IT A SPINNER? :D
01-25-2004, 12:25 AM
Yes, a spinning reel....

Plugging reel or Bait/Plug reel?
Wait for the Daiwa Emcast to come out in a week or two.

Penn Spinfisher Series - 6500SS or the 7500SS
Shimano - Stradic 6000
put them on the rod to see which one FEELS better.

How'd you get the name?? Sounds like a unpleasant story to me. Hope not.

SHIMANO STRADUC 4000 one of the best made reels around 139.00 2004 models have added upgrades like more bb and an oil port. all around great reel will take a beating

Shimano Baitrunner or an Okuma coranado or one of their baitrunners :D
01-26-2004, 10:37 PM
Shimano baitrunner. I have the 4500 and 6500. Great reels never had any problems.

STICK WITH THE SHIMANO BAITRUNNER IF YUO CHOSE THE BAIT RUNNING TYP. THE OKUMA BAIT RUNNING IS A (REEL) PIECE OF CRAP. I GOT TWO OF THEM WHEN THEY FIRST CAME OUT I WILL SELL OR TRADE THEM RAEL CHEAP! :mad: :mad:

Try looking at the Daiwa BG series. I have the BG 30 and it has been great in the surf!
01-27-2004, 09:06 PM
Beachbassard, Okuma makes two very different baitrunners: the Epixor baitrunner version and the Coronado which is very different, looks like it might be OK, and some people on this forum
seem to really like. Which one are you talking about ??
01-27-2004, 10:44 PM
I HAVE TWO OF THE CORONADO/S THE BAIT RUNNER DRAG IS POOR.
I REALY WOULD LIK TO GET RID OF THEM.
I HAVE A CD65 & CD45 WITH THE ORG BOXES.
WILL TRADE BOOTH FOR DIFERANT REEL OR ROD :cool:

Penn Z will outlast em all

"Burt Young played the original "Bedbug Eddie" in "Pope of Greenwich Village." A great movie that also featured Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts and Daryl Hannah."
I love that movie... "Cholly (Charlie), They took my thumb Cholly (Charlie)"

Atta boy Rottn...you hit the nail on the head! Also the name of my band...www.bedbugeddie.com....I'm the big ugly bass player.
Thanks guys for all your suggestions....leaning towards the Daiwa BG series...
