The Standout Feature
The engineering of Baitrunner fishing reels lets you take a step back from the rod without having to worry and allows fish to play with the bait until you are ready to strike and set the hook. Once a fish bites on your line, the spool continues to run in free spool mode until you are ready to pick up the rod and reel it in.
