If you are talking about the Bass Pro Shops R.C. reel, I give it a 10 out of 10! Very good reel!!

I have several of the RC reels and gave my sons each one for Christmas a year or so ago.  I've got two that predate the blue color that are still going strong.  Buy it when it's on sale and it's a bargain.

I own 1, it too predates the blue color, it was Dad's before he passed last year and he fished the heck outta this thing, it never gave him an ounce of trouble, I've been throwing it hard n often and it's served me well also. This reel prompted to look into higher end reels. Im no expert but it's not bad.

I picked up a RC combo on sale at BPS last year, has worked very well for me.  Hard to beat for the price.

Main problem that I had with mine was that I just could not throw light baits...I don't mean light as in 1/32 oz. I mean light as in 3/8 ox. It just couldnt toss it further than 20 ft. I have heard this from many people seeing that I do work at a BPS. If you are going to use it for spinnerbaits or some other larger baits, thats fine. If you want a good all around reel go with the Shimano Citica. You can get these reels for the exact same price now at most places and IMO it is the best reel out there for under $100...Check them out see what you like but if you are going to be throwing anything and everything, go with a different reel...

If you can't throw a 3/8 oz lure with that reel it is probably set up incorrectly. 3/8 oz is pretty heavy. A lot of spinnerbaits are 3/8 oz.

Excellent reels!  They are on sale for 79.99 online.  If you have a BPS near you, you can take the printout off the website and they usually honor the sale prices.
