Bps Carbonlite Spinning Reel Reviews

Recommended Posts

Anybody used this one yet? I was thinking it would be fantastic for finesse plastics, yet its mixed reviews so far on the BPS site.

My friend has one that he will return. The spool would make his line twist badly and knot, didn't matter on the line type. He bought a president and put braid on it and was all smiles.

It is smoother and casts much easier. I'd pass until the kinks are worked out.

The new Carbonlite reels are junk. I know several people that working the fishing department at my local Bass Pro and they have had to write out a lot of them. Look at the Abu Orra S or President for a better quality reel without breaking the bank.

Or go with the tried and true BPS Pro Qualifier.

I have a carbonlite paired with the 6'6" M carbonate rod and I love it, can throw it all day. Strong for it's weight too. However it is the older model the gold one, not the newest model

I had a similar experience as Diggy's friend, returned it and bought a "name brand", not a wind knot since.

Just about any of the name brand reels from 60-$100 are going to be just fine. Most 2500 or 2000 reels don't weigh too much to begin with and the rods are pretty light too, find one feels good on your rod and you should be all set.
