Look at the Abu Garcia (for life) line. The Cardinal 300u, while it doesn't show 2 lb, has 7 bearings, DOESN"T freeze up, and is reel small. $40 I think. However, don't know what a bait feeder, or a bait runner is.
the bait runner/feeder is a secondary drag system that after you cast and flip the bail back over it disengages the preset drag and basicaly lets you freeline with little or no tension. as soon as you start reeling the main drag kicks back in to the preset drag. we used to use them back in the salt fishing with live sardines, you could let the bait run without worrying about line on the reel coming off in a mess and causing tangles. worked great for other bait fishing kinda like backing your drag way off or fishing with an open bail but no wories of line tangles
This is an informative thread. I've got an Okuma Coronado CD-50 bait feeder I picked up used a couple years ago sitting on the shelf, didn't know what it was for or how it worked! Guess I'll have to clean it up and make it into a wiper reel/ rig, or a water dawg rig for PIKE! >
Thanks guys! ;D
