Shimano Baitrunner X-Aero 8000 RA
The new Baitrunner X-Aero combines the benefits and convenience of a
traditional Baitrunner reel with the casting performance rivalling that of a compact
Big Pit reel.
This outstanding casting performance is achieved by the use of an
oversized Aero Concept spool which is noticeably larger in diameter than a normal sized spool.
The Baitrunner X-Aero also uses Aero Wrap II (Shimano’s top line lay system) and 2-speed
oscillation for almost perfect spool line management. Another advantage of the large diameter
spool is that one turn of the handle retrieves nearly 1 metre of line making retrieving from
To satisfy modern anglers thinking, the 8000 sized reels now have a single
handle which generates more winding power than the double handle.
The hybrid body of the Baitrunner X-Aero has a black satin finish and the line clip on the
XGT-7 rotor is line friendly to prevent line damage. For more than 20 years the Shimano
Baitrunner reel has been the most popular specimen reel available, trusted by millions of
angler throughout Europe. Now, with the addition of the Aero Concept spool, a single
handle in the larger sizes and a satin black nish, it is set to continue to be the anglers
favourite for many years. This product comes with a cold forged aluminum spare spool.
