"Makes fishing fun and stress free"

I recently purchased 2 Shimano 8000 GTE-B baitrunners and wow how have I managed to fish before without them. I'm yet to find a fault with them. With the ability to adjust the baitrunner and drag with ease and my casting distances have increased dramatically enabling me to fishing in areas that were unreachable with my previous reels. Yes they cost £74.99 per reel but they last for years (My dad has had a pair for 12 years and they are still quality).

I'd definitely say that these are the best reels I've ever used and I've been fishing for 15 years so I've had my fair share of reels over the years. They also look good finished in silver with a strong line clip for when you need to recast to the same area, as many of you know a good line clip is essential.

Now for the Specifications
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" """"""
 Weight 550G

Ball bearings 4ARB (anti rust bearings) 10times more durable

 Roller bearing 1

 Line capacity 0,30mm/390m
 Line capacity 0,35mm/290m
 Line capacity 0,40mm/200m

 Spare spool 1

 Gear ratio 4,5:1

 Aero wrap spool so line builds evenly on the spool and exits cleanly with minimum friction for longer, more accurate casts

 Floating shaft The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a floating position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.

 Power Roller Shimano's Power Roller dramatically reduces line twist, prolonging the useful life of your reel line and improving casting performance.

 Double handle For better balance and instant action

 Super Stopper II With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you'll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.

 Hypergear This precision-engineered main gear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve/playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. In fact, all reels offer a breathtaking 90.3% efficiency, which makes them not only feel great, but in years to come they'll still be quietly purring

 Dyna balance The dyna balance Reduces reel wobble and allows and produces ultra smooth performance

Baitrunner has been a breakthrough in big fish angling - a feature that has proved so beneficial that it has become a standard on big fish reels. Baitrunner is a lever located on the rear of the reel that allows the reel to be set so that line is released in controlled free-spool
