New rods and other items at BPS?

Recommended Posts

I received a $30 gift card to Bass Pro as a Christmas gift. So a couple of days later I was looking at their website, and saw a number of items listed as new. Just in the casting rod section there are about 10, 8 of which are BPS brand. 

A. Most of these are just updates of older models, aren't they?

B. Does anyone have experience with any of these "new" BPS rods?

C. In particular I'm interested in there Pro Comp Casting Rod. After a week of thinking about it, and going down the street to handle them in person twice, I went ahead and ordered one. They only had 1-pieces in stock here, so I had them ship to store a 2 -piece as the purpose of this rod is to have a cheap, but decent, casting rod to keep in my vehicle. I don't recall ever seeing a Pro Comp before, so I think this is a truly new item. If no one else has any experience, I'll give you guys my reviews when it comes in (if the lakes aren't frozen). My impression from picking the rod up in store is that it feels great for a 30 dollar rod.

Anyway, I was just wanting others' thoughts/experience with any of the new BPS rods or other items marked as "new" for that matter.

Thanks.

Recently I was at Bass Pro they had a lot of the previous model rods on sale. I put my gift card towards two extreme rods one being a 7' medium heavy spinning and the other a 7'6" medium heavy casting rod. They were on sale for $64.95 each. I also saw bionic blades which were probably even cheaper. So you might get a good deal on a clearance rod.

Generally the "New" just means that some update was made to the rod.  Something as mundane as the grip length or and worthy as the blank material.  I wouldnt buy the BPS branded rods unless they are on sale.  Not because they are junk, but because the go on sale pretty frequently. Just have a little patience and you will find it on sale
