This is the 2015 generation of the Shimano Baitrunner DL. The DL-RB has been upgraded with a variety of features, including a full control of your tension settings. Whether you’re fighting a predator and want your line to glide with next to no resistance, or trying to reel in a particularly huge catch and you need your line to lock up almost completely, that decision is put entirely in your hands. The DL-RB consists of two models; the 6000 for smaller, more intimate lakes and rivers, and the 10000 for when you need more range.
As with all baitrunners, the DL-RB benefits from Shimano’s baitrunner system; a lever on the back of the reel, allowing your reel to cast in controlled freespool. In addition, this rod is fitted with an ARC spool for greater accuracy, a Floating Shaft to improve longevity and efficiency, and Power Roller, making Thin Mono and Braid lines significantly more effective with this reel.
Fishing Republic dates back to 1985 when the company’s founder and Executive Director, Steve Gross, established a business selling fishing flies and fly tying materials to fishing tackle wholesalers. In 2005, Fishing Republic opened our first store in Barnsley. Since then the company has grown to be the Largest Fishing Tackle retailer in the UK.
With the extensive angling knowledge within our company and the exceptional customer service we offer both in store and online, it’s clear to see why Fishing Republic is Number 1.
