Shimano Baitrunner Dl 2500 Fb

Shimano Baitrunner DL2500FBThe DL family of Shimano 's world famous Baitrunner range of reels features technology far beyond it 's low-mid range price bracket. This one is the baby of the Shimano Baitunner DL family. However, don 't let the ‘baby of the family ' tag deter you. This reel is crammed full of features and technology that you would not expect to see on such a small reel - features that only usually appear on larger reels. Some of these features include:Varispeed line lay – this means that a consistent spool speed is achieved by altering the speed of the oscillation cam. This results in a beautiful even line lay delivering excellent casting and overall manageability.Super Stopper II – Super Stopper II is an anti-reverse system that uses a one-way roller bearing that eliminates back-play. This provides the angler with instant hook setting power, meaning fewer lost fish.AR-C Spool – this is a new spool lip design which, after rigorous testing and countless hours of simulations, has been found to provide longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design, while helping to prevent wind knots forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts with less friction.Dyna-Balance – This feature virtually eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counterbalancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. This is done by adopting a similar approach to balancing a car tyre. Shimano were able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations.Baitrunner – Shimano 's world famous Baitrunner system allows the angler to feed line out, meaning the fish can take the bait and run, while still maintaining line control by having the bail closed. To engage the primary drag and set the hooks, simply turn the handle or flip the Baitrunner lever to the 'Baitrunner Off' position and let battle commence!Cold Forged Aluminium Spool – usually used on fly reels as it is renowned for its extremely lightweight yet incredibly strong properties. It manages this by being manufactured from a single piece of aluminium.Floating Shaft II – Most fixed spool reels suffer from wear by friction where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have reduced a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporated bearings on either side of the shaft, thus virtually eliminating wear. The result appears to leave the shaft in a ‘floating ' position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.The Baitrunner DL2500FB features Shimano 's own XT-7 body and rotor construction, meaning that this reel is incredibly strong but also weighs in at a featherweight 360g.The Baitrunner DL2500FB features a front drag system and has an incredibly high line capacity for such a small reel. It can hold roughly:240yds of 0.20mm diameter160yds of 0.25mm diameter110yds of 0.3.mm diameterThe DL2500FB is perfect for feeder and bomb fishing on small waters when targeting carp or other potentially large and hard-fighting fish.
