Bass Pro Shops Extreme Spincast Reel
Our new Bass Pro Shops® Extreme® Spincaster is a great introductory fishing reel for beginners, young and old—and it also makes a reliable, hassle-free reel for those who appreciate simplicity and quality! The Extreme Spincaster features three chrome-plated stainless steel bearings plus a roller bearing, for long-term smoothness. Then there's our famous Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse and a 4.6:1 gear ratio. Other features include an aluminum frame, cover and oscillating spool, which allows line to stack more evenly as it is wrapped, maximizing casting distance and reducing line wear. Also featured are all-metal gears, Free Flow™ Line Guide, and a no-twist line pick-up system. The ceramic Free Flow™ Line Guide is more open than conventional spincast reels to reduce friction, allowing the line to flow more freely off the spool during the cast to yield longer distances. Anglers will also appreciate the aluminum handle, star drag, thumbar with silicone grid, and the line pickup roller which provides a smooth retrieve while minimizing line wear.

There's a lot of grease on the spool shaft - not sure if I'd recommend giving it a full dunk. Probably once you do it a few times you'll have to do it every time.
This stuff helps with castability and reduces the curly cues in the line.
I use it on all my reels. The day before a trip I’ll spray all my reels down. I find it also improves the life of the line.
Also the reel should be stored in a cool dry place between trips. Heat and UV light are the enemies of monofilament line. The nose cone protects the line from UV, but heat will still damage it.
Finally….Consider changing the line, especially if the reel is more than a few months old. Fresh line cast much better. I recommend our Excel line or Berkley XL.
This reel weights approximately10 oz.
