Carp Reel - The purpose of a baitrunner (or freespool) fishing reel is to provide another drag system which can be manually engaged/disengaged with a simple switch. Switching it on while the bait is in the water allows a fish to hook itself and swim away freely, by allowing line to be released/dragged out from the spool, avoiding the rod from being pulled into the water! Switching off the baitrunner function then allows you to strike and play the fish on the standard drag system (which is present on the majority of fishing reels).
