The shipping prices stink..its over 61.98 with tax. I can probably grab a better reel in the marketplace for the same price shipped

Ill sleep on it

Yeah, that's the problem with Cabela's. You think you are getting a good deal until they add shipping.

Wonder if they will honor the price in the stores? I know on the main page it says online price only, But if you go to reels and click on the extreme it doesn't say that. I tried to call the Orlando store today but the fishing department never picked up the phone..

i've always been able to get them to match it...

the BPS i go to is about 2 hours away... i've always called and asked about matching on-line prices and if the 1st person i get says "no"... i hang up and call again...until i get someone to say "yes".... and get that persons name.. B)

Orlando store won't do it because on the BPS website it says online only. I called them and was told that and my buddy lives in Orlando and he asked in person and was told the same thing. Makes no sense at all to me, They should be begging for any sale these days..

Do they do in store pick up? Cabelas will let you order something and pick it up in the store which can save the cost of shipping at least.

I just check it is free just have to pay the tax to have it ship to store near you. It's usually shipping 5-7 days from what the site says. Ship to store info is in the link below.

Ok and thought so as Cabelas has the same policy and saves on the shipping even with having to pay the taxes.

I now have 3 of these reels now and I love them. Just picked up the 3rd earlier this week while they were on sale. I bought all 3 on sale for $50 and I'm quite pleased with them. I have used the other 2 reels for at least 3-4yrs now. They've never been professionaly services/cleaned. I don't fish tournaments, don't fish more than once a week on average so they have seen weekend use but I use them pretty heavily when I do use them.

If you want a good affordable reel that feels like it's top quality and as good or better than more expensive reels, these reels are the way to go.

I've got some from the previous series, 5 to be exact. I have had an issue with one of them getting a grinding feeling in it when fairly new, and one more after 3 years of use, but the others have been great and I've had them for several years also. They're still slick like new, but I do service mine so they stay that way. I also added extra bearings in the handles of them so they're 9 bearing models now and I love the way they feel with moving baits. The cast distance is really good as well. I have hit 80' consistently with 1/4 oz. crankbaits.

The only thing I'd change is the braking. The magnetic brakes seem to have to be turned way up to avoid some form of backlash (either bad bird nesting, or just a few overruns in the line only). About 9 out of 10 is where I have to keep it set at. But hey, whatever works, and at that setting the casting becomes nearly effortless. That picture of me holding that fish is with one Extreme, the 5.4:1 ratio for crankbaits. It's fair to say I love these reels.
