its $120 at sports authority and today they have a coupon. Spend $100 or more and get $25 dollars off your purchase.

What do you guys think???

i have been looking on ebay for the reel and i might just go with an establishment.

You can't go wrong with a baitrunner! Mine has been going strong for about ten years now. I want another one.

alright cool.

I decided to go down to sports authority and buy one.

I am going to use Trilene Big Game 25 lb line. This should be sufficient right?

i am a PROUD new owner of a Shimano Baitrunner 4500 B.

119.99 Regular Price

They only had the display left, so i bought it with a 10% discount. it didnt touch saltwater, so what does it matter if other people just touched it. I then used the $25 dollars off coupon with a purchase $100 or more. I also bought a 12 month replacement plan for 15.99 (the guy said it was 10 bucks but it rang up as 15.. oh well)

119.99
-25
-12
+15.99

Grand total= 105.83

Cant wait to put some line on this bad boy and go out next weekend. Maybe ill go during the week. Oyster point is 5 minutess from my work and Pacifica pier is 5 mins from my house.

happy fishing everyone!

what i want to do is find a old broken one and trade it in for a new one.

Anyone have a busted one they are willing to sell?

I am planning to go down the coast from Pacifica to HMB maybe farther with my friend this weekend. We are going to follow the seagulls!

i am going reel crazy right now.. (no pun intended i SWEAR)

i can buy two 6500 shimano baitrunners for 90 bucks.. I am not sure if it is B series or how old it is yet. He told me he mostly used it for fresh water fishing.

let see if i can bargain him down to 70 or 80 bucks.

I'd like to get one myself. Are the baitrunner series all good in salt water? Big enough for dinos or rays? Lifetime guarantee?

i have only used the reel twice, but it has been soo smooth. I havent hooked any rays yet, but from what i hear it can handle them.

i put on some 25 lb nylon on my 4500b. It was way too heavy.

I think i am going to buy some 12 lb p line and put it on my 4500b and 6500b.

i gotta see if there is a lifetime guarantee.. illpsot later tonight.

Alot of guys like P-line. You might want to go with the 15lb test though. Also consider using Power Pro, or a combination of both. Really, it depends what you are fishing for. Good luck, the rays will be around soon.
