Re: Okuma Epixor Baitfeeder Or Shimano Baitrunner
"I'm not sure what the difference is between the 4500 and the 4500b, sorry. "
I have read abit and the only reason I really knew anything about A/B is I saw some dude on fleabay claiming his an A model, like the B is bad. This is what I had read from tackle tester
When the bait runner’s were revised a few years ago, the B series added a few modern features to the reels including infinite anti reverse(Shimanos Super Stopper II), anti corrosion bearings and newer drag technology
To me they sound better but who knows? I have always been a Shimano fan but have heard good things about the Okuma. I also would be getting the 4500, also wondering how the weight is casting it alot. May not matter that much as I quess most of the weight issues are rod/reel balance or rod anyways.
One other thing I have been wondering is why Shimano only offers the one Baitrunner in the US as in the UK they have like 6 or more models. I guess maybe because carp fishing is big overthere-make any sense?
