Looking to get a new baitcaster. Have narrowed the search down to 3 possible candidates. The Okuma serrano, the Lew's Tournament Series, and the BPS JM Signature Series are all under consideration. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently bought and love the BPS CarbonBlack reel, not too big not too small, all around smooth and great appeal. Also, if you buy a BPS reel from their store they will give you a one year warranty compared to buying another brand and it only be 1-3 month warranty. When that is up you will have to go through the other brand company and have a hassle when your able to drop by the store and have any problems fixed on the spot.

Best of Luck !

Look like two posts above this

the 50e is on sale for ~$98 TYD and the regular curado could be bought from tw for $120 TYD. Fantastic reels, just bought two of the 200 size reels and couldn't be happier.

Anyone of those are fine IMO. I picked up the J. Morris Signature from BPS last week. The more I use it the more I love it, casts GREAT even with regular old 12# mono. So I guess you just gotta pick one and practice.

I am a fan of BPS BC reels (I have 13 of them)...but the current deals on the Shimano Curado 50E & 200E cannot be beat. You might want to reconsider your options...

I own 2 of the BPS JM Signature Series and like them very much. I also own a US Reels Hibdon Supercaster 800 SX and I must say it cast like a dream and outcast my BPS reels by atleast 20 feet, but I do not care for how the "see-saw" levelwind puts line on the spool.
