A++++++++

sent in an old 3500b baitrunner 3 years out of warranty that blew up on a big bass this year and just got a brand new 6000 updated model baitrunner in the mail.



this is why shimano continues to earn my business went from this ^ to this...

That is a deal Josh...is that the one that was real bad?

Is the new one any lighter than the orginal model?

You know I'm a Shimano Fan.

same weight mike,

but the 6000d has 20# max drag where the 3500# max drag is 11#, and more line capacity , line retrieve is 32"pc compared to 28"pc, looks a little fancier too, not that it matters

hopefully it holds up as well as the original baitrunners

Well there was is still a little debate over the weight Paul:rolleyes:

she legit pegged a 55# hand scale on the boat and at the dock, but at captain tates "certified scale" (circa 1843) firmly mounted in the dirt, she moved the bell to 53.6# . Personally i believe she was better than 55# but I will never know! I was just elated to break 50"/50#. Lenght was 51" Girth was 31".

Boated her last fall in 9' of dirty slack tide water !
Thank You for the compliments , Im still shooting to beat your slob!:D

dave be sure to right them a letter when ever you send something in. Noting that you are a charter operation that exclusively features shimano rods and reels ;)

they also completely replace a shimano travela tuna jigging rod after a ceramic guide fell out.

How long between each weigh in ? My fish laid on the deck of the boat for 5 hours before she was weighed, At the dock Capt. tim said she lost at least 2 to 3 pounds by then ! :eek:

Josh your fish sat for at least 2 hours maybe 3. We fooled around in the cock pit talking for awhile and waited on the tide that never turned. Then when we got back we fueled and cleaned the boat then took pics of the fish all over the place then you went to Taits.

I think you lost some weight on the fish.
