    Shimano Baitrunner 8000 OC Reel


    All of my pike rods are now matched with OCs. The cranking power is great for hauling in heavy baits and the build quality is spot on, I wouldn’t want to pike fish with any other reel. I have upgraded the clutch to carbon drag washers but it’s not really necessary, I just like to tinker.
    You will not be disappointed with these reels, they are bullet proof and can take the abuse that us pikers like to throw at their kit….or is that just me???
