It does now....LOL, was trying to fix that while you posted. Still, I can't get the d**n picture to just show up on here, which I was trying to do.

Anyway, my guess is it's made by Pinnacle.  Basing that on....

A) the color

:) handle/paddles

c) the inlaid logo thingy (which Pinnacle seems to do)

It can't be a Daiwa with the centrifugal brakes but it almost looks like a TD-A frame/body.

Swept handles and the hood assembley strongly would suggest Diawa, who make 4 of thier reels now.

Its based on the Daiwa Aggrest (JDM lite SW BC) sold as the Exceler here.

It can't be a Daiwa with the centrifugal brakes but it almost looks like a TD-A frame/body.
Why?  Daiwa has a centrifugal brake system, called Centriflex.

I forgot about Centriflex, which IS used on the Coastal Inshore.  Duh!!  Ok, so it is a Daiwa then.  That inlaid logo deal still makes me wonder though.

If that inlaid logo is the side cover release button, then I'm ALL WRONG, and its a Pinnacle.

Well, I don't see the screw on the opposite side that would hold the sideplate, so you might be right about that now too.

I suppose it's not a bad price for the reel even if it is a Pinnacle.  If it were a Daiwa, then it could be a real bargain.

i'd definately have to say daiwa. Short of no thumbscrew on the gear side for the sideplate release, the frame porting, handle, drag star, and knobs look very similar to the 08 daiwa stuff.

Guys, it really doesn't matter. It's a house re-brand and, whatever factory tooled the reel they probably won't support it anyway.....

Thats what we have found to be the case on all house brand and re-brand models we have seen....

Tight Lines!!!

Oh Really!  I found BASPRO eager and able to repair and service their reels, at a very fair price and with rapid turn around. Cabelas reels have very few who will service them, this is true, but Cabelas is almost always  willing on exchanges if your complaint is reasonable

BPS has been especially good at both service and sticking by their reels, This observation comes from dealing with them personally as well as others who are friends of mine

BTW: our concerns have mostly been about cleaning and repair, these reels last under use

Dom,

I think he meant the factory didn't support them, not that BPS or Cabela's wouldn't support them.

I gotcha Keith. Let me explain what I was trying to say

Cabelas : to get a reel serviced is nearly impossible, I understand this.

BPS , on the other hand, seems not too anxious to have whatever factory they deal with give outside reel services access to the parts needed to service their products. They seem to want to cull all this work into their own service center, and being a nation wide and internet retailer they seem to be able to do it. So while whatever factory they are using BPS has pulled the reigns in , it would seem and the factory only " supports" the BPS service center.

BPS rod/reel srvice is GREAT and quick,i personally think bps stuff is a bit up and better build and quality then cabelas houseband stuff.Plus i don't have a cabelas to close to me so thats why i also tend to not buy their stuff.Just my opinion thats all.

it is made by pinnacle. the dead giveaways are the push-button logo sideplate release, the padded thumb bar and the profile. here's a pic of the cabela's salt striker and the pinnacle peak side-by-side. even the knobs are the same.

Pinnacle = Crap.....usually anyway. Forget the Cabelas brand. Put your money into a well known name brand, you'll be happier in the end.
