Thread: baitrunner

  1. #1


    Looking at purchasing a new small baitrunner had a look at a Okuma BF20 &30 for about $100. Has anyone used one? They come in three modules 5 &10 ball bearings and stainless drive module. Price is $100, $200 and $130 respectively Don't have a prefernce, just want to get value for money! Anyfeedback would be great!

    I have the EB30 (10BB model). Can't fault it.
    I got it for $135 from a Sth Aust mail order place.

    I have a Coronado 30 for just over 2 years now & never had a problem with it. I not to happy with the alloy handle as it gets slippery when wet, I might try to replace it with a rubber one if I can find one to suit.

    The bait feed really works well. I have caught quite a few big bream by letting them run first before strinking, usually they hook themselves.

    I am sure you won't be disappointed, especially as they come with a 5 year warranty. Good value for the money.

    i have used a few different baitrunners and i still think its hard to go past the shimano's.. sure they cost a bit more but worth every cent. penn also make a very nice B/R.

    Thanks guys, already have two shimano's 3500 & a rare 3000 looking for somethnig a little lighter in weight to match with light estuary rod I know you can't go past shimano quality would be great if they produced 2500 again!! Great sized reel - 3500/3000 is just a little big for what I have in mind.

    Rumour from a good Tackle Rep is the 1500 and 2500 will be back in the market SOON

    Gee Alan hope that rumour is correct because i will definately be purchasing one.
    LargeLzard i see your point about the 3500 being a bit heavy for a light spin stick.......fingers crossed they do release the 2500 soon mate.

    Re: baitrunner

    would be nicer to see them bring back in the tss3's and TLD5 and TLD10... but i supose the B/R is a start.
