Affordable entry level Baitrunner reel suit to smaller venues.
The Baitrunner ST-FB 4000FB is a good entry level Baitrunner which is suited to smaller venues and has found favour on the commercial waters circuit with match anglers. It is very affordable and features varispeed line lay, Super Stopper II plus XT-7 body and rotor are among the many advanced design features included in the ST’s construction. There are two sizes in the range and the 2500 size is perfect for feeder and bomb fishing on small waters when fishing for carp or other hard fighting fish, whilst the 4000 size offers more versatility and power making it suitable for all general, pleasure and specialist fishing. (Please note that image shows the 2500 model, see below for correct model.)
