A baitrunner does not freespool.

It seems like you were throwing a dig out there.....I don't understand why you'd do this since this thread was about conventional VS spinning reels.


I know of some people who have bait runners 4500,5500 & 6500 they have attempted to drift chunks and eels with the "Bait runner" rear drag in affect but it has too much resistance,as you know the whole spool rotates and line will come off but just not as fast as they'd wanted it to.
I think the bait runner drag system is designed for dead sticking or boat use IMHO.

Yup. They are also good to snag pogies and let them swim. The pogies are big enough to pull the drag off pretty smoothly.

No dig man....you think to much.


I am aware of the regular use of the bait runner. It just seemed reasonable that you could almost get the same kind of drift using one in that fashion....its not going to be as efficient as a conventional but I figured it would work better than having the bail open on a regular spinning reel.

No he's right, there's too much resistance. I've tried it and didn't like it much, not even in the ballpark compared to a nice smooth conventional.
Can you do it? Yes, but constantly having to pull line by hand off the spool, and doing it so the eel drifts naturally is tough.

The Baitrunner does kick butt for snag n dropping bunker

Its an interesting technique I didn't know guys did, definitely good to know. I had thought sweeping the eel's through the current was the trick but its only worked for me when the tides are crappy or the bass are really active.....

Hands down Penn 525 mag. I can plug and throw heavy sinkers with bait in the surf. Use it for blackfish,fluke or anything boat or surf I even troll with it. Can not beat the price about $130. Better than my 975 and my Squider. Don't get me wrong I love my Penn Greeny's and Van Staal too
