Spinning vs. Bait Runner

Recommended Posts

Pretty new to carp fish.  I have been using Shimano Stradic 4000 reels that I also use for stripers to start out.  I recently almost got spooled by a good fish so I thought it may be time to upgrade.  Do most folks use a bait runner for the dual drags or a larger spinning reel.  I am mostly a Shimano guy so I would appreciate and advice on which type of reel and which model.  I don't think I need a gigantic reel for fishing huge waters as most of the waters here are medium sized.  Thanks!

Welcome! I have both types of reels. For carp, I use a bait runner for about 90% of the time. I have some light spinning rods with 6 lb. line that I use because I know that the carp won't be real big at one venue. Of course, there are always surprises. I recommend a bait runner if the budget will allow.  Now...what brand? You will get all kinds of answers.
