Only Bass Pro reels I have used are the Tourney Special and the Extreme. Still have the Extreme. Never had a problem out of either.

They look just like a lews reel, probably decent enough to last a couple of years. I kinda like the color in the picture. If you end up buying one, let us know what you think about it.

There's a reason they look like Lews. Lews, BPS, Abu, KastKing and a few others all come from the same factory in China, Doyo is the company that makes them.

I bought two Johnny Morris signature reels. They were ok. I never used them. One of them had the finish flaking off and it would cut you like a razor. I threw them both in the trash.

I looked at the Piscifun bait casting reels, specifically the Chaos Xs 60. The YouTube reviews said they were a good reel for the money (<$60). So I ordered one off Amazon. Got it and the handle failed to engage the retrieve gear after casting. So I ordered a replacement from Amazon. The second one had the same problem as the first one. I asked Amazon for a refund. I'm hoping they have a booth at the Catfish Conference next month. I'll buy one if they have one that works. My boat partner was wanting one as well as they make left handed models.
