Best Baitcaster for under 80$ asap.

Recommended Posts

The 80$ includes shipping. I am thinking about the Rick Clunn BPS but I wanted your guys opinions. I am planning on making the purchase tomorrow.

Can't speak to the rick clunn, but muddy's extreme seems to be a tried and true reel. Maybe want to take a closer look at it. Check the reel out on ebay also. jmo

I returned a Rick Clunn and bought a Citica, couldn't be happier! I could get no distance from the R/C and pretty much tried everything. Maybe there was something wrong with it, as it gets great reviews, but the one I had SUCKED! The guy at the counter at BPS talked me out of exchanging and getting the Citica, haven't looked back!

actually, the BPS/pflueger reels with 'intertia transfer braking' (ITB) are good reels...smooth and great castability. there is one design flaw, however, and that is if you turn the magnetic cast control dial past the '0' or the '10', you can possibly unhitch the magnetic assembly inside, causing the magnets to rub against the side of the spool and reducing your casting distance immediately. it's relatively easy to fix but you need a philips screwdriver and a couple of minutes but a pain nonetheless...just remember not to turn the dial past the extremes of the marked range. maxumbass, i'm sure that's what happened to you.

for the price, i'd recommend looking at the daiwa exceler for $70 or the abu garcia pro max for $80.

Ive been using Pflueger and BPS for a long time I never once did this.

There are a lot of things you as a user can break, it is not the reels fault.

Good Choice!  I have no experience with that reel, but you are the one who has to be satisfied.If you are going to Cabelas to buy it, why don't you bring the rod it is going on to see how it feels. Enjoy the reel 8-)

I tried it in the store a month ago and I will be buying it on line and plan on buying a matching rod from my local dicks for it in the near future.
