    BPS reels are THE BOMB.......

    They may not be the best manufactured out there, but they are pretty dang good, and their warranty is second to none.

    I was a bit miffed when BPS would not exchange out a reel with clearly a defective shaft and main gear. Hey, it was nearly 8 years old, so it was worth it.

    But, what happened next was way, way cool. I took the reel to customer service, and they asked me if I wanted to ship it off for repair. I said sure.

    A few weeks later, a BRAND NEW reel arrived with a note that the previous one was defective.
    YEA BABY......you cannot beat that.

    Since this worked, I figured I'd try another reel. This time a bait caster, with a broken levelwind. Clearly, it too was defective, as the worm gear cut a funky path and simply stopped working.

    Again, I went to customer service, showed them the problem and they suggested I sent it to service. Again, about 3 weeks later........BRAND NEW REEL.

    Say what you want about the Chinese "junk" BPS sells.......if they are willing to stand by the "junk" and replace them when they break due to a failure, I'm completely DOWN with that. These were not chump cheap reels either. Top of the line Johnny Morris Signature Models that are in the 130-160 range.

    Later,

    I am not much on the BPS reels but I do use the cat Maxx rods and they are some of the best catfish and striper rods I have found. My dad had a couple BPS reels and they will stand behind them when they go bad. He even had a couple BPS bass rods that the tips broke and they gave him new ones when he took them back. BPS will take care of there product if you have an issue.

    Are the older gold carbonlights any good reels? The older ones that came out before the Johnny Morris series

    I have the last model carbonlite before they made them johnny Morris. I remember when the new ones came out, I heard horror stories that they had messed them up. I'm sure they now have the kinks in them fixed though. In my opinion, pro qualifier is hard to beat.

    I just bought the Prolite baitcaster, $59, 10 bearings, dual brake system, and really like the reel. Bass Pro salesman said the reel is made by Daiwa and similar to their $150 reel. Only difference is the drag washers and better bearings. Do a google search, pretty good feedback on this reel. Cant beat it with this price, special edition reel.

    I think the Pro Qualifiers are the best reel on the market under 100 bucks. I have about 10 of them with the oldest being 8 years old. I have yet to have had a problem out of one. I am not a huge fan of their rods, having broke several over the years, but the reels are well worth the money in my opinion.
