Product Description

In classic black with an XT7 spool finished in silver the ST models are packed with far more advanced features than youd reasonably expect to find on what is now the entry level Baitrunner. Line lay is immaculate thanks to our Varispeed system which involves an oval and a square gear computer engineered to interact perfectly. No longer do you need big money to buy big performance free spool reels

An excellent reel for carp fishing at a reasonable price. This reel is very reliable and is suitable for beginners / moderate carp fishers. At this price and for the needs of the majority of UK carp fishing enthusiasts this reel is definitely worth 5 stars.

The reel performs very reliably and can be used on fairly large waters comfortably. You are able to adjust the drag settings whilst in baitrunner mode and whilst not (i.e. when playing the fish) - both of which are controlled from the rear of the reel.

I have comfortably dealt with a range of fish using these reels, from 2lbs to >30lbs.

With regard to the review that complains about controlling the drag - there are two knob mechanisms at the rear of the reel, one of which controls the drag whilst the baitrunner is active, the other of which when it is not. If you're unsure how to use it then you best bet is to try it out at home on different settings before going fishing.

If genuinely not working then I would recommend contacting Shimano or Amazon. Once you work it out then you should be able to establish very good drag settings for your situation. From memory I believe that the very rear knob controls the drag on the baitrunner, and the smaller knob (between the main body of the reel and the rear knob) controls the drag when the baitrunner is not active (may be the other way round though!).

Great baitrunner!

I had the 5000 aero which is still great but this is a lot more robust and has the the quality feel you get from all of Shimano's gear.

Go forth and buy!

I now have three of these reels and they are just right for the main lakes I fish on (they are not massive, so don't need full on big pit reels). I have caught loads of carp with my Shimanos'- biggest was a 23lb common - no lock ups, totally reliable. The price is good for the amount of reel you get, but remember to shop around (I got mine on eBay - brand new!!!), not to shabby looking, easy to use and setup (who needs instructions - see a previous review on here!!!!!) and they feel good quality when using them. I have purchased a number of reels over the years and I'm still surprised how much I like these. Overall I'd say these reels are a good starting point. Hope this helps

For an item that's supposed to be top of the line, and Shimano top of the class, I swapped these out and went back to my Daiwoo's.
Why? There clumsy, inelegant, and a real pain. What I had hoped would be a addition to my equipment, for the price, Shimano I say this, we expect better, and you need to rethink these, in my humble opinion, for there are far superior reels at significantly cheaper prices. Fisherman take note, Shimano dropped the ball with these well and truly. 3/10, and that's being generous.

This fishing reel is definitely worth the money as it has a quality, sturdy build which will probably last you a lifetime. This reel is great as you can adjust the drag to your liking e.g. a high drag setting when the switch is flicked forward for the fish to run with no weight or tension and then as soon as you start reeling the switch automatically flicks back and you have a second setting which you can adjust to your liking when playing the fish. Also, when playing a fish this reel definitely has a very smooth action. And lastly, I would mainly recommend this reel to carp anglers and any type of night fishing (inc catfish). 10/10

Reel arrived within four days of order. It feels a solid piece of kit,and reel action is very smooth. Would recommend this reel to anyone wanting a long cast reel for lure or feeder fishing.
