Looks kinda like a BPS Johnny Morris reel. Thanks for posting.

What are the line capacities of this reel. I tried to find it, but sadly could not.

I have one of the Johnny Morris 5.8oz and it is nice, but can only hold up to 12lb test.

I have never let the capacity on a baitcasting reel stop me from using what I want

That's a clean looking reel? How smooth is it? Maybe in comparison to Lew's?

If I am spending 129 on a reel, it will be made by Lews, not academy

It does have the same color scheme as the jm but the more I look at it it looks like its made by okuma it has some similarities in style to their old white v-system reels and as far as smoothness goes you really can't compare anything to a Lew's, I love my Lews!!! But it does feel like a pretty solid reel especially given that its an h2o!

I kinda wanna try one out but then again like stated above ou could get a nice name brand reel for the price. I love the Mettles that's because they're $50.00 bucks and perform very well.

I bet they are make by the same chinamans that make Pflueger, bass pro reels and more. Looks kinda sorta like the Bass Pro carbon lites I have


Thanks, Billy
