Hi Everbuddy,

Can you help me out guys. I am confused about the bait runner & a simple spinning reel. What is the difference between them. For rohu & catla which 1 is batter ?


Bye
Take care

Dev

:arrow:
A baitrunner has a lever which can set the reel in a free spool position without lifting up the bailing arm. When the handle is turned, the baitrunner is turned off.
A bait runner is quite handy provided you learn to use the system properly. A spinning reel is more simple to use & you just have to adjust the drag as required.

The baitrunner (type) of reel that I have has micro adjustments for the drag (I think they all have this feature, but not sure). Seems neat to have these adjustments, but I have not been able to do justice to the reel in terms of utility. :roll:

Dev,
Its like this:
the baitrunner feature is a secondary drag, enabled by a lever at the back.This is enabled by a dedicated drag setting and without opening the bail arm.
This provides/ allows the line to run out with low tension (drag) and the fish MAY BE a bit unaware of the fact that he's swallowed the hook.The steady spool movement and 'clickclickclick' is what alerts you to a strike...
Next,you move the rod up smartly to hookset and start turning the handle, main drag comes into play, and away the fish goes...
The reel can be used with either the baitrunner feature enabled or disabled.
This was I believe, engineered for carping in England, where the carp have become terribly sensitive to the line tension and tended to spit out the hook on feeling the tension of the primary (and only) drag.:evil:
Here's a scan of the baitrunner feature from the shimano handbook

Dear Varriginal Gurudevs
Its simple logic, the more youngsters we convert from the bright flashing lights of pub/ weekend/ booze and what not into the DARK SIDE of healthy living , like wake up at 4-30am on a sunday and drive 120km in 45degree heat to FISH-now that is my passion...In 2050, we may not have a single multiplex or disco left, but people should have a river to fish...
Sure I'll walk that extra mile-Learnt it from you guys... ;)

The pretender 8) 8)

The real difference is that while you can use a spinning reel to bait fish, a baitrunner is a bit too heavy for continuous spinning.

I finally went and bought the Quantum 3 piece IM7 travel rod and the Daiwa Tierra reel. Not counting ounces any more mate, doesn't get lighter than this for the money.

Hi Guys,
Some sad news, just heard that Putta the WASI guard from WASI lakes Shivasamundram passed away this morning.
Got this news from a WASI member who called in just now from the lake.

Very sad indeed :cry: :cry: :cry:

I remember this guy most when I was at Forbes' and he insisted on talking to me in Kannada despite me pleading with him that I knew not a word of the language.. Even Bobbee was telling him the same but he refused to listen...

May his Soul Rest in Peace [smilie=sad.gif]

Sad Sad news. I was to go to the wasi lake on monday, but had to cancel out as I met with a small mishap on my scooter. No wonder there was no response from his mobile on Sunday nite and Monday morning. Great with the kids. Shall pray for him. May the almighty rest him in peace. :cry:
