Shimano Baitrunner DL 4000
With a stealth gunmetal grey body, the new Shimano Baitrunner DL 4000 FB offers a host of features unique to the DL family of reels. Three shielded stainless steel ball bearings produce effortless performance, whilst the Power Roller helps to eliminate line twist with fine mono and braid.
Available in 2500 and 4000 sizes, this new model is equally at home targeting Tigerfish with dead baits or live bait. The DL 4000 has also become a firm favourite with light tackle boat and feeder anglers. Targeting species like Grunter, Mudfish, and Carp.
We are also seeing more and more of these reels heading to the Zambezi river where they have become firm favourites for Tigerfish,,,
Utilizing Shimano’s world-renowned technology such as the AR-C spool and Varispeed oscillation system, the Baitrunner DL offers optimum efficiency with huge amounts of power in reserve.
The DL 2500 is best combined with light rods from 7ft up with monofilament no thicker than 12lb or braid no stronger than 20lb.
The baitrunner function is very convenient and especially so when teaching young anglers to fish. Or, simply when you have to wait for a bite…
One turn of the reel handle engages the gear, instantly connecting you to the fish on the other side.
The FB range sports a front drag that is used to set the drag while fighting and a drag in the rear that controls the free-spool.
