Bass Pro Shops Crappie Maxx Mighty Lite Low-Profile Baitcast Reel 4.8 5 17 17
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
Don't let the name fool you After seeing so many good reviews from folks catch 6 - 8 pound bass on this reel. I decided to pick one up for tossing lighter lures and as a "backup" reel, for inshore Speckled trout fishing. I have caught several trout with it now, and last night I caught a 19" Redfish on it. The first fish I have had on it that really wanted to pull drag. I was amazed at how smooth the drag was, it felt as good as my normal reels that are 3 to 4 times the cost! It is also hard to believe how smooth this reel cast and retrieves with only 3 bearings! If you are looking for a budget reel, you can't go wrong with this one. And if you are looking for a value reel this one might surprise you! December 27, 2014
same as older Wally Marshall reels Yes they are exactly alike other than color and the name . In my opion this is great . I was disappointed when the old WM ones were put on clearance . I have 8 of them and use them on my Wally Marshall Tightline rods for spider rigging . What a combo they make . I recently bought a rod and reel combo a 14 foot tightline and this new reel for a friend to use . It is the same reel as before . I would like to say that these reels are meant to be used for straight linning or trolling crappie techniques but they will cast lures at 1/2oz. or more pretty well . I don't recommend them for this though because they have graphite side covers and will not hold up to serious casting hour after hour for very long . But when used for crappie techniques they will last at least 5 years . I now because I've had mine almost that long and they are just as good as new now . March 13, 2011
Great all aroud reel Ive taken this reel out fishing a few times and i love it. it is silky smooth and it casts great wiht light lures and light line. When i got it i wanted a knew crappie reel and did this one deliver. it reels in big bass decent pike and if you have one a catfish. love this reel have it on a Bass Pro crappie Maxx signiture series trigger crappie rods and there is no better crappie setup.

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 !
