The Bass Pro Shops® Pro Qualifier® Baitcast Reel has become a fixture in Bassmaster Elite pro Edwin Evers' boat.

Whether you're fishing a weekend buddy bash or the Bassmaster Classic®, this reel will put you at the top of your game. From its one-piece machined-aluminum frame and double-anodized, machined-aluminum drilled spool, to its Recurve handle and drag star, the design is sleek, light and functional. And every feature is geared for performance, including the quality 7-bearing system with Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse; our Dual Braking System™ with click-adjustable magnetic and 6-pin centrifugal cast control systems working in concert; a hard titanium-coated line guide. A pin-release side plate for quick brake adjustments on the fly. Soft touch thumb bar. Built-in lube port. Yep—you're gonna love this reel!

"It never ceases to amaze me...almost everyone who fishes in my boat comes away in awe of my Pro Qualifier baitcasters. They thought they were fishing with $300 reels!"
15-Time Bassmaster Classic® Qualifier
This reel was the first baitcast reel I bought and learned to use. I had tried others at lower prices with no success. Nothing more frustrating than a backlash. This reel can really be dialed in and is durable. I think it's a good value. I know a 100 dollars for a reel can be a big step for most fisherman on a budget bUT I haven't found a reel at a lower price and I have tried many. It is quite heavy but it is durable.
