Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super crappie real!!! I love baitcast reals for crappie fishing. I use long(8-12) foot rods for vertical jigging and like the control I get. The real cheap reels never cut it. Obviously..the expensive ones will but I own 20+ crappie rods and that expense is excessive!!! These reels are just the ticket!!! Love 'em and recommend them every trip out!!!! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crappie Max I have two of these reels. They are very smooth and dependable. I use mine to tightline fish and troll. October 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by smooth Nice reel for the price. It's sitting on a twelve foot light rod. July 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great reel Had this reel now for about two weeks and i love it. I like to fish with plastic worms without the aid of a weight which is hard to do with most baitcasters but this one performs great.I have already landed several bass with it.The only thing i see that could be improved is the way the left cover is attached.Needs to be attached with screws so it doesn't move when you are fighting a big one May 21, 2013

Details: 
besides crappie cranks, I also like to use tubes on a 1/16oz jig head. I was wondering if this rod will cast the 1/16 jigs well or if I should stick with the heavier cranks for this and get a light spinner for the jigs??

A: 
Definitely go spinning gear for anything under 3/8 oz. You will ultimately be unhappy with any baitcaster system unless you spend $500-$700 or more and even then they still will not be as good as a spinning rig of say only $100 or more . Trust me on this . Go ultra light for these tiny lures . Good luck and tight lines.

A: 
No this reel is not available in left hand . The Bass Pro Extreme reel is the most affordable low profile reel offered in a left hand version at $79.99 reg. price but goes for $54.95 on sale about 2-3 times a year . Also the Abu Garcia BCX round reel goes for $59.99 and is offered in a left hand version . As far as I know these are the least expensive two reels that come in left hand that Bass Pro offers . My brother has the left hand BCX's and he loves them . I have the Extreme reels in the 05 size in right hand versions ( not available in the left hand in this size ) and I love them . I would bet that the 10 size Extreme reels offered in left hand versions would be every bit as nice of a reel . Both of these reels have metal frames as opposed to the graphite frame on the Mighty Lite . I have both the Mighty Lites and the Extremes and for crappie I'm very happy with both but promise you that the Extreme reels will definitely outlast the Mighty Lites . When I buy them I buy the Extremes when on sale and the Mighty Lites if I need one right now and the Extremes aren't on sale . I bought one of each in the last year not as replacements but to have additional reels handy when guiding . My original purchases of both types ( the Extreme's and the Mighty Lites ) was about 4 years ago and again 2 and half years ago and all of them are still performing flawlessly . Hope that helps you in some way . Good luck and tight lines !
