Re: Best Baitrunner Reel
I gotta cast my vote for the shimano 4500. I know they're not being made anymore, but you can get them used online. I really like the metal, hate the plastic of the newer reels out there. One of the reasons I won't buy another Penn. The Thunnus is great, but we fish rivers a lot. IMO for the surf guy when you get to the point where you need a reel like the Thunnus, you have graduated to bigger fish and should start using the conventionals to turn those bigger fish. Just my .02.
