Excellent Bought this reel for Catfishing here in TN. LOVE IT! Powered it with Daiwa 80lb test Braid and a offshore Angler Surf rod. Couldn't ask for anything Better! November 28, 2014
best reel i ever owned owned an okuma for years switched to this shimano, not only does it function perfect it looks wicked on the boat !!!! March 25, 2014
Good reel, little to costly. I picked up a 1200D for my 9' ugly stick bigwater rod, it looks nice and the bait feeder option was a must for me. Reel can cast amazing, it is smooth, seems pretty well built. Now I'm not impressed with the price tag! For the same $$ I could have gotten the pen spin fisher V 80 (was out of stock) so knowing I need a good reel I took it for the team, I do have a small issue with the bait feeder lever disengaging if I turn the handle (it won't) so need to trip in by hand which is not an issue but for the price I coul have bought two okuma Coronado CB-80a reels, that from time to time have small issues with bait feeder auto trip when turning the handle. Overall the bait runner D is a good reel, it gets the fish into the cooler and for that I am greatful. May 1, 2013
AWSOME Great reel. Using 40lb braid it casts like a dream. Feels well balanced when realling. Very smooth actions. I use this primarily for stripper fishing. I have it married up with a St Criox Tidemaster 8' MH one pc and used a Berkley Gulp 10" eel, great combination. The reel has a bit of weight over some other reels but feels like its of better quality. I plan on purchasing another for my wife. On another note my brother in law purchased the Daiwa baitrunner which is also a nice reel but even he wishes he had spent the extra money for the shimano. April 25, 2012

Baitrunners have been good reels, although I prefer the old ones as I have heard the newer versions have had their issues.

A: 
Yes I have, I have the 8000 model and use 35lb braid. I also back fill the spool with 100lb mono. If you use staight braid on the spool it will cost you a small fortune with the amount of yards it will hold. The bigger mono takes up some of the space to keep the cost of braid down. I still have over 300yrds of braid with the mono on it.

A: 
Personally I have not, but I don't see why it wouldn't perform great with braid. This reel is designed to cast far and smooth, braid would only enhance the performance...

A: 
I would use a 7 1/2' to 8' MH or H rod. I have the same reel and use a 8' ST. CROIX MH. Rod has the best of both worlds. good length and stiffness with out sacrificing action. I also have the versitilty to fish anywhere: surf, bridge, jeddy, or boat with out needing a shorter rod for a boat or a longer one for surf. The best advice I can give you tho is to go to your local bass pro and work with an associate to try the reel on multiple rods to find what best suits your likes and feels of a rod.

A: 
i would say if your on a boat a 6'6" to 7' rod but from shore a 7' to 8' just remember the bigger the pole the more leverage the fish has

A: 
really all depends on the leader and how the fish is fought. Also if there is any structure around for the fish to get caught up in. 100lb fish can be land on this tackle during the right situation

I've landed several snook over 20lbs with ease also 40lb tarpon, very fun reel. Never really hooked into anything extremly large with this reel, but it has handled everything I've needed it to.
