The Baitrunner has deep roots in the Kiwi fishing scene and this latest release still comprises a lot of the features that have made the Baitrunner a house-hold name in this country, but it also comprises advanced technologies that are going to take this iconic range of reels well into the future.

  • Retrieve per crank - 93 cm.
  • Bearings - 3+1.
  • Max drag - 12 kg.
  • Drag type - FD/BTR.
  • Mono cap - 9 kg / 242 m.
  • Powerpro cap - 50 lbs/505 yds.
  • Weight - 825 g.
  • Gear ratio - 4.4:1


The handles have been upgraded from the B series, while maintenance on the reels has been made a lot easier, with the inclusion of an easy access oil maintenance port. All of the models feature three double sided, shielded, stainless steel bearings and an anti-reverse bearing.

  • Aluminum cold forged spool. These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.

  • Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.

  • Propulsion Line Management System. The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion spool lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off of the spool in smaller loops during the cast which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts with less friction. The Propulsion spool also utilises a long stroke design to further enhance the casting distance. Furthermore, there is less bouncing of the line on the spool lip like on a standard spinning spool. Because of the unique shape of the Propulsion spool, the line flows consistently off of the spool. So, with a standard spool, friction alternates from heavy to light as the line slaps the spool lip. This causes backlash and inconsistent line speeds. The Propulsion spspool lip provides consistently light friction to overcome these situations.

  • Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during the cast while providing longer casts than other oscillation systems. So, casting distance increases with less effort required.

  • Dyna-balance. This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.

  • Building upon the successes of Fluidrive, which provides extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting process, Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface to maximize tooth contact. This increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort.
