BPS Tourney special baitcaster

Recommended Posts

We'll just start off to say that i'm a shimano guy.  So when my dad wanted to get his first baitcaster, I decided I would buy him one (Since I owe him money).  At the time I was a little straped for cash, so I found this real... it looked alright for the money, and for being BPS (Note: i'm not the biggest BPS brand fan, i've had bad experiences with their brand, and I am also not a fan of their shipping and customer support.  That's just my experience, but i better not get going on that).  Anyway I ordered this Tourney Special thinking it would be good for my dad's first one.  I got it and paired it with a cabelas 7' MH rod.  And boy was I blown away...  I would have never expected for a 40 reel to.... well feel that good.  The thing was a little heavier than my curado, but it cast like a dream and felt sturdy like a more expensive.  I almost didn't want to give it to my dad, but we'll just say he was more than happy.  

So now i know if I ever need a cheap reel, i'll have to pick on of these up.

I just wanted to share this with everybody incase you are in need of a good cheap reel.  I just looked, it's on sale for 29.99 right now.

I never ordered much from BPS.  When I did order tackle, I usually got it from Cabelas.  Now there is a BPS near me and I buy there a lot.  

I'm glad you like their reel.  I don't have any BPS reels except for onespinning reel - an Enticer - paired to a 6' light action BPS Bionic Blade rod.  I bought it because I wanted a good but cheap light action rod/reel I could keep in my truck.   I ended up loving the thing.  The reel is smooth, light, and has a very nice drag system.  The rod is very light, and extremely sensitive.   Since then, I've bought more BPS rods and I really like them.  I don't have any experience mailing something back to BPS, but their in-store customer service is excellent.  

BPS baitcasters are made by Pinnacle.  Pinnacle makes very good reels.

Actually the reels are now made by Pfueger or the same people that are making Pflueger.
