Some folks have had problems with BPS extremes, but, I've got 4 of them and never had a problem.  Bought an older one on Ebay and it had some drag issues, so I sent it to their reel service center and they repaired it gratus!  Can't beat the price and should provide good service.

for $39.00 I would buy a couple. I have around 5 or 6 BPS reels and I have never had a problem with any of them and I absolutely love them.

I have an older BPS Extreme reel which I was told was made by Pfluger and I have had no trouble with it over 6 seasons of fishing. My 2 cents!!!

first bc i ever got and learned on....treated me well and its still going strong today.for the price and your first go for it,just buy some mid level line to learn on dont wanna go birdnesting and cutting up expensive line,just set the brakes right and get yourself a casting plug and have at it after a couple casts youll get the feel for it hardest part is learning when and how to thumb the spool but youll get it ...good luck and have fun with it.

 On the BPS Site. They have 4 lefties currently but have been switching up clearance every 9 or 10 days.

I go on the bps site almost daily and haven't seen them on sale for a few weeks at least.

I see them now.

They are still there. Go to Clearance, fresh water fishing, then reels, then bait cast, on the left hand side there are several reels in a box, one of them is the old extreme. They have been on sale for about 4 or 5 weeks now. Like I said the lefties are up now, same as a couple of weeks ago, then they put up different models in right. There have been a lot of used ones on the flea market here for the same 40 as a new one is currently going for.

one quick warning no biggie though sometimes to open the side cover of bps reels you have to press in the little basspro logo and turn the cover counterclock wise sometimes this button can be hard to push in,if so give it a lil squirt of wd-40 ive also heard giving it a lil soak in mild warm water will help to,but just a heads up.

UPDATE:  Just wanted to thank u guys again for the info... got my reel last week and have taken it out a few times... i started practicing with it in my backyard and got pretty good, but naturally once i was out on the water i kept gettin too excited and would cast way too hard and got some nice tangles haha but nothing too bad... been working on keeping more control... overall I'm loving the Xtreme reel.. it casts like a charm when i take my time and slow down... like you guys said for $39 i think its an unbeatable reel  8-)
