Shimano Thunnus Baitrunner Spinning Reels
The Thunnus CI4 is the flagship of the Shimano Baitrunner Family, built saltwater tough and boasting a host of quality features.
Features include, a powerful retreive, 6 + 1 bearing system and state of the art CI4 body material. Not only does the Shimano Thunnus range of reels possess the best and most reliable Baitrunner system available, but also all the other exclusive ,Shimano engineered features. Like, Dyna-Balance, Propulsion line management, Super-Stopper, Sealed A-RB and of course the Shimano Ten Year Warranty.
Let's have a look at some of these features in a little more detail. The 6 + 1 bearing system supports the main load areas through the use of sealed A-RB bearings. These anti rust bearings have 10 times the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.
CI4 is the material used in the construction of the body and rotor of the Shimano Thunnus series. This fused material has a weight and corrosion advantage over metal, while maintaining incredible strength.
Dyna-Balance eliminates vibration on the retrieve, while Super-Stopper or infinite anti reverse and a unique spool design to enhance casting round out an impressive range of features in the Shimano Thunnus Baitrunner series.
Now for the Baitrunner concept. Put simply this ingenious system, invented many years ago by Shimano engineers, enables a spinning reel to be disengaged through the gears. This lets the fisherman set baits and livebaits with the reel in free-spool. Wary fish, when mouthing and taking the bait, do not feel any resistance and so carry on with the bite much more aggressively. The angler is then alerted by an alarm system, prompting him to set the hook by simply turning the handle or flicking the baitrunner lever. This re-engages the gears and drag system and let the fight begin.
Built for bait fishing and live-baiting a wide range of salt and freshwater species, the Thunnus boasts 4 sizes from 4000 to 12000. So if your passion is floating baits for snapper and mackeral,or live-baiting for mulloway, kingfish or barramundi, there is a Shimano Thunnus Baitrunner reel perfect for you.
