Product Description

Shimano XT-A Medium/Big Baitrunner Carp Fishing Reel

The Big Baitrunner LC reel is highly regarded among fishermen because it will never let you down. Whether fishing your local water or going abroad to catch the biggest of fish, anglers can always be sure that the Baitrunner LC will stand its ground. However, after being on the market for 11 years Shimano decided to upgrade the LongCast with their latest technologies. When Shimano started redeveloping it they set the target to come up with a totally new design, but keep the strong image of its predecessor. To give it a better line lay, they changed the oscillation system to the latest Aerowrap II. Looking at the market, there are not many free spool reels that use a worm shaft to oscillate the spool. By using one it’s possible to use a long nose spool similar to a spool on a big pit reel. The oscillation speed went down by adding more gears internally and the line lay has improved – resulting in a superior casting performance. Many internal parts are made stronger and run smoother with the use of shielded AR-B ball bearings. The cap bail is replaced by a cone type that directs the line more easily to the line roller.

When Shimano introduced the smaller size Big Pit reels a couple of years ago Shimano noticed an increasing demand in smaller-sized big spool reels for the carp and coarse fishing markets. Therefore two sizes of the BTR LC have been developed. The new Big and Medium Baitrunner XT-LC will steal the hearts of many anglers and exceed its renowned reputation.
