Upgraded and ready for action
Searching for a high-performance straylining combo that will last for years? Then the Shimano Baitrunner 12000 OC and Vortex Straylining Combo
is the right pair for you. This combo is made of tough, quality materials that make it durable and versatile. Whether you’re straylining for snapper or livebaiting for some kingies, this set is just what you need. It delivers a consistent, smooth performance that allows you to catch more fish.
Superseding the well known Shimano Baitrunner B series, the Shimano Baitrunner 12000OC
is the latest release in Shimano’s Baitrunner range. This new series boasts some of the most exciting upgrades seen in a Baitrunner reel for years, yet it still consists of the elements which made Baitrunner a household name for Kiwi fishermen.
The Shimano Baitrunner 12000OC
features a huge 12kgs of drag making it ideal for stray-lining and live-baiting off the boat or casting from the rocks. This new range now comes with a replaceable spool clicker, Vari-speed oscillation to make sure you get perfect line lay with Power Pro and other braided lines, and Propulsion Line management to give you that extra distance while casting.
Not only have the handles been upgraded from the B series, but the Shimano Baitrunner 12000OC
also features a Cold Forged spool for increased strength and durability and Shimano's Fluidrive II which increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort.
The Shimano Baitrunner 12000OC
would have to be one of the most versatile bait fishing reels out and is without a doubt the one reel you must have next time you hit the water!
The team at Shimano Fishing NZ have developed a dynamic and versatile series of rods that has been designed to handle New Zealand fishing conditions. The Shimano Vortex Spinning Rod
features a Power-Carbon blank specially designed to take the knocks, an integrated glass tip so as to retain sensitivity from the bite to the fight and also enhance overall performance without compromise. These features allow you to take full advantage of the more traditional bait fishing techniques. This rod is a perfect match for the Shimano Baitrunner series.
