It’s back! This week Shimano’s legendary Baitrunner 5000 RE returns to the tackle shop shelves and will be available for a short time only as a limited edition special following high demand from the UK public.
The 5000 RE LE has an RRP of £74.99, but Shimano is currently offering it at the end-of-line price of £54.99.
It will take 230yds of 10lb line, making it the ideal size for a multitude of uses.
Match anglers will find it perfect for heavy feeder work, carp anglers will use it for stalking or floater work, and it is ideal for chub, barbel and tench fishing on all venues.
The reel offers a ratio of 4.5:1 and is packed full of features, including a double handle, worm shaft gearing, a power roller to reduce line twist, Aerowrap line lay system and an extra-strong triangular rotor.
Shimano is even throwing in a spare spool free of charge ¬ but only while stocks last, so be quick!
