Baitrunner 8000OC Fishing Reel

The Baitrunner has deep roots in the Australian fishing scene, having been first conceptualised right here. The OC release still contains a lot of the features that have made the Baitrunner a household name in this country but also features advances that are going to take this iconic range of reels well into the future. Some of the upgraded features include a machined handle, a replaceable spool clicker, Varispeed Oscillation to provide a perfect line lay with Power Pro braid, and Propulsion Line Management to increase distance while casting. The Baitrunner lever moves towards the body to stop any accidental gear changes, and with three double-sided, shielded stainless steel bearings and an anti-reverse bearing, this range continues to dominate the bait fishing reel market.

7ft Integrated Solid Tip Fishing Rod

Australian Fishing rods need to be tough and durable to capably handle big Australian fish and Shimano rods are some of the toughest on the market. Each model has been designed in Australia, by experienced Australian anglers, who know exactly what is required when targeting the local species.

With specially designed rods for a number of Australian fish, including, Barra, Bream, Bass, Flathead, Whiting, Marlin, Kingfish, GT's and many more.
