The most advanced Extreme ever is poised to take the fishing industry by storm! We’ve retained everything that makes it one of the most popular and reliable reels in our lineup, and added features that put it into a class well above its modest price point! Stacy King himself tested this reel under the most rigorous conditions for a year and a half before we decided to release it, and he gives it top marks for performance, durability, and extreme fish-dominating power!
We’ve upgraded the Extreme with our tournament-proven Dual Braking System™—the combination of the automatic centrifugal brake and the manually adjustable magnetic brake controls the initial, intermediary, and final stage of the cast to give you a perfect landing every time. The double-anodized V-grooved spool is free-floating for virtually zero friction, and ported for additional weight reduction. And our new drag is truly a breakthrough—the 4-disc Aramid fiber/Stainless steel washer drag system smoothly exerts resistance of up to 12 lbs. on the meanest, hardest-fighting fish, while at the same time dissipating heat better than anything we’ve ever seen…resulting in the most powerful, longest-lasting, stick-free drag you’ve ever experienced in a baitcast reel!
Other standard features include one-piece cast, then CNC-machined aluminum frame; easy-access sideplate with push-button release for ease of maintenance; titanium nitride-coated line guide; 7-bearing system (six premium double-shielded stainless steel plus one Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse); Recurve handle; and click drag star.One-piece aluminum frame:
The one-piece frame is diecast using cutting edge molding technology, then CNC machined to the tightest tolerances to provide a flex-free housing for gears and bearings.Recurve Handle:
Pairs with a sleek drag star to create a more compact profile with greater comfort.Aramid Fiber/Stainless Steel Drag Stack:
Aramid fiber is a profoundly durable synthetic material that is highly resistant to abrasion, organic solvents, and impervious to heat up to 930°F! Its other uses include body armor fabric for our troops.DBS (Dual Braking System):
Re-engineered with our pro-grade system that combines centrifugal and magnetic braking technology to give you trouble-free casting!

I was able to get this reel dialed in easily and used it successfully with only a little practice. I'm happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassrambler Awesome reel!
This reel is one of the smoothest reels I've ever used.I use it to fish frogs on a 7 foot heavy action Bionic blade with 40 LB. Suffix braid.It casts a mile and gets fish out of heavy cover with ease.I'll definitely get another one.It's just as good as any of my Quantums and Pfluegers.A great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BruceNC Function well, great value
For the money, I'd have to say it is a great reel. Only a couple of points reverted me from giving it 5 stars. One, I was not able to spool line on the reel as fully as possible. I like to go up to the bevel at the edge of the spool. But, the line would rub on one of the side to side braces before I got that far. Realistically, it was probably only about 20 feet of line shy of where I would have preferred it. Second, the numbers on the mag adjustment were hard to read under flourecent light in my shop. On the lake, however, they were fine. Lastly, the thumb bar was much smaller than my other reels, mostly a collection of Lew's and other BPS reels. It was odd at first but I got used to it. Then when I switched to another reel I had to readjust. I suspect I'll notice this less and less over time. All that said, the reel function excellently. Silent and smooth. I paired it with the Extreme rod in 7'4" medium action with a fast tip. I got this with swim baits in mind and with a 1/2 oz head I as not only able to launch casts a very good distance, it was also very accurate with shorter distance side arm casts. If you are shopping for reels in this price range I definitely recommend this one. Mine is the left hand 6.3:1.

I have had this BPS Extreme low profile reel in left hand retrieve for a few years now and it is my favorite baitcasting reel hands down. It's always smooth no matter what line i use on it or whatever the lure i tie on. After i bought it i took a week or two and dialed it in and it's given me high performance and no hassle consistently. Very comfortable in my hand for hours at a time, wouldn't want to use another reel with a much higher profile. If i ever lose this one I'll be at the store for another.
