Shimano Baitrunner DL 6000 RB Reel. The latest generation of Shimano Baitrunner DL has upgraded internal components and subtle ‘carpy’ cosmetics. With an incredibly smooth rear drag the Shimano Baitrunner free spool mechanism has a wide range of tension settings from virtually zero resistance for predator work to almost locked up for snag fishing situations or when really big fish are encountered. With two specimen models to choose from the 6000 is ideal for smaller lakes and rivers and the 10000 for heavier lines when longer casting ranges are required.
Shimano ARC Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more
accurate casts. ARC spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid.
Baitrunner was a breakthrough in big fish angling a feature that has proved so beneficial that it has become a standard on big fish reels. Baitrunner is a lever located on the rear of the reel that allows the reel to be set so that line is released in controlled freespool.
XT7 is the original Shimano composite reel material. Used on midpriced and budget reels and spools XT7 is reliable, robust and lightweight.
Cold Forged Aluminium
Cold Forged aluminium is used for some ‘round’ reels, fly reels and is also used for many types of spool. Made from one single piece of aluminium Cold Forging produces great strength.
Good quality line lay is the most important feature for precise, long and accurate casting. Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape! Only a special computer program developed by Shimano has been able to make these to shapes fit together perfectly – the result is perfect parallel line lay and improved fishing precision.
Floating Shaft II
The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a ‘floating’ position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.
Super Stopper II
Super Stopper II eliminates backward movement and free play in the handle when the reel is set in antireverse.
DynaBalance reduces wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing Shimano are able to redistribute
the rotor weight to create eliminate vibrations.
The special grooved design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.
