I heard from my uncles cousins brothers grandpa, that they are junk; but I don’t know…

They look nice, someone should do a YouTube video casting them against other brands.

No Sir.


Consider it a micro brand of baitcaster. The review would have to come from you.

It means you’re a spammer hawking something nobody’s heard of. You should hawk it over on bbc, bigger audience

Not sure what you mean by hawk or hawking. I assumed asking a question about a reel on a fishing forum made sense. IDK maybe im wrong.

They SEEM to be the NEW THING and Cabellas ,and pro bass sell them . Good reviews on the GOAT Model .
Made from a Solid piece of Aluminum ..... maybe a good product but NOPE ain't seen one or used one and most likely NEVER WILL less someone gives me one . since I have quite a few old reels ,just won't have a chance to.
Here is a link to the pro Bass article .


PRO BASS BATES REEL INFO

They KINDA Look Like SONIC THE HEDGE HOG

Well I just posted a Query with Bass Pro to see WHADDUP with the little jewel that boasts 10plus 1 Bearings (pretty fishy right there if they caint add 10 plus 1 to get 11 .
Plus I inquired to their origin of Manufacture since the ad says allow 10 to 14 days and ships FROM THE MANUFACTURE NOT Bass Pro . (anuuder fishy deal )
