No, not yet.

Probably the same as the current ones but with higher prices.  ;D   ;D   ;D

BPS has discounted the Johnny Morris Gold BC reel again - it's down to $129 (originally was $269 two years ago, then reduced to $169 for most of 2010). The other Johnny Morris models have also been heavily reduced. So, I have a feeling that BPS might be replacing that line for 2011. They had PQ BC reels down to $69, and Extreme rods at $59 in one Christmas catalog. Other than that, I haven't noticed any blow-out pricing (yet).

I was just in the store a couple nights ago and looked for it but all saw was the Christmas gift catalog.

Normally they're blowing out their house brand rods & reels during this time but they don't seem to be doing that this year.

Hopefully that changes soon!I want a new magtouch  :)

I have noticed that as well, I did however get a fish eagle 2 (best rod around $90) for $30

I went to the Hartford Ct. store recently and noticed their fishing dept. was pretty thin. Don't think they are stocking the store as much as they have in the past. I think the store brand rods and reels are pretty good. The discontinued Prodigy Round BC is one of the best I have used. Maybe they are cutting back too much.

I haven't got any of the new catalogs. I did go into the Hammond Cabelas and they had the XML and XMLTi rods on clearance for $40 normally $139 and $89 normally $189.

Not yet, but I have gotten what? 5000? duplicates of EVERY catalog they make so far. That number seems to be down from 2009. Hold on................. it's getting cold in here.............. time to toss another handfull of  BPS catalogs on the fire.

Yeah, what's up with that??  They send me several of each catalog each year.  I don't mind so much the master catalog cause by time the next one shows up my first one is pretty shop worn from looking at it so much.  But all the others, I just toss them while still at the post office.

I've received three Christmas catalogs from BPS (so far). The first and third where the same (at cursury glance), the middle one was different, with different pricing. If you're shopping, you really need to study the catalogs a bit before tossing them as the deals do change - like the PQ BC reel at $69.xx in the 1st Christmas catalog - but not the second. Then, a later catalog might have better prices than the earlier one so it pays to do a bit of homework before tossing in the trash or burning in the fireplace... ::)

This is true but when I get a new one I immediately already know the Shimano stuff is not going to be on sale and that's all I'm interested in so I toss them all except for the main master catalogs that I keep around to look at the new baits. But as for which one has the BPS Pro Qualifier on sale the cheapest, or what specific BPS rods are on sale this time, they're not even the slightest bit of interest to me.

I haven't got any of the new catalogs. I did go into the Hammond Cabelas and they had the XML and XMLTi rods on clearance for $40 normally $139 and $89 normally $189.

I'm about 2 miles away from a Cabelas and heard that they are coming out with a new XML or one with a different name.  I have 2 XML spinning rods and 2 casting( not the titanium w/ recoil guides) that normally retail for $139.  I picked all of them up when they've been on sale.

IMHO,  even at $139 these are great rods!  They will hold their own w/ rods that cost up to $100 more.  It will be interesting to see what the new rod will be like.

I have 2 XML spinning rods and 2 XML casting rods and I also have 1 XMLTi casting rod with the recoil guides. They are great rods and I agree they can hold there own against more expensive rods. With both rods being on clearance it will be interesting to what the new rod or rods will be like.

The only complaint I have w/ the cabelas XML rods is the lack of selection.  The XMLti's weren't quite as bad.  The reg. ones didn't have much of a 7' 1pc. selections.

Without having a BPS near me,  what is their top rod and has anyone used both (XML and BPS's top rod)?

You guys are right about duplicate catologs that they send too many, when you no longer need them please recycle. I find myself buying less each year from the 2 big names as most of business goes to places like BassTackle Depot & Tackle Warehouse for things that my local tackle shops don't carry. I do use BPS for a few house brand items like the XPS Florocarbon & RC cranks.

Why don't you just take 2 minutes and call them and tell them they are sending you multiple Catalogs and to only send one. Now that would be the right thing to do if you care about the environment.... Which you should if you are a fisherman.

I have especially with regards to their hunting catalogs because I don't hunt. It doesn't matter it seems if you buy from them on occasion they will send you everything.
