Bought A Bps Pro Qualifier

Recommended Posts

I bought some gear at the BPS sale and on the list was a Pro Qualifier. I'm looking forward to using it. I've got it paired up with a new JM Carbonlite micro guide rod. I've got mostly Abu stuff but the guy was pushing BPS brands hard and I can respect that so I'm giving them a chance. Hope I love them both.

If the sheer number of 5 star reviews on the PQ at basspro.com are any indication, I think you'll be quite pleased!

I felt the pressure too, I bought one to try on my new wright and mcgill rick clunn s-glass reaction rod.  I also broke down and bought xps fluoro, 12# to try it with.  we shall see!

This is exactly why I purchased 5 of these reels before Christmas.

I went down with the goal of getting at least one, and maybe two. I didn't get one at all though. Got sidetracked with grabbing up new lures and spent near double my budget on just that. The PQ did look good though. Definitely a solid reel.

You will not be disappointed I have four of them that I use for tournaments there an outstanding reel for a 100 bucks that will hold up to the abuse of fishing

The guy at Bass Pro was cool. I forgot to bring some reels to trade so he tossed me two Zebco 202's for $5 a piece and told me to go check out then turn around and trade them. It was a net savings of $20 after trade in and purchase.Turns out they donate them to the local Boy Scouts troop. Neat deal.

The one here in the richmond area did the same thing except they didn't even make me buy the reels, they just rang it up and then used the reel trade in coupon all in one transaction.

 

Worked out pretty well on my BPS PQ purchase.... I hope i enjoy the reel as much as everyone else.  I bought the 4.7:1 ratio for cranking that is matched up on a kistler helium micro guide 7' cranking rod.

 

Hopefully i can get out this weekend and try it out.

Just bought my first PQ because I have had such a positive experience with my PQ Tournament.

With the trade in on top of the sale price this was what I feel was a steal on a reel that is considered the best bang for your buck when it's full priced.

Bought the 5.2:1 lefty mostly for cranking but also as a means to slow myself down.

Tried it out for the first time yesterday. It didn't take me long to dial it in while I threw everything from weightless soft plastics to heavy cranks.

 

Since we're talking BPS reels, I wanted to know what kind of lube should go in the lube port; grease, oil or something else?

I took the PQ lunge myself, on sale for $80 + the reel trade in program, hard to ignore.
