Our new 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by schiffelstuff Excellent value
I've been using this real for about a year now. It's well-made and is a great value for the money. I really like that you can move lures in a hurry if you want to. I have not experienced any difficulty with the thumb button accidentally releasing on Hookset. I would like to see Bas Pro offer a larger model along the lines of a Zebco 733 or 808. This is an excellent value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mwfloyd Smooth cast
Bought 2 of these reels. Usually I change out the line immediately before use on these type reels with Stren, but did not as of yet. The casting is smooth and outperforms the Zebco reels. I got these because I take some folks fishing who are not able to use open face reels. I want them to still be able to cast easily toward the bank without difficulty. These reels do just that, and have a very smooth retrieve as well. Solid steel construction, and not heavy or cumbersome. Highly recommend for kids also.

A friend of mine bought this reel for me in a trade of other fishing equipment I gave him. I Loved the look and the way you could cast for miles. I used the line that it came with(10 lb. mono filament) and later changed the line to Power Pro 30 lb. braided with no change in performance it was a great reel. The only bad part was the thumb release broke off and fell in the water during a cast Rendering the reel unusable. it was broke in such a manner it could not have been fixed even if I had the piece that fell in the water. Just short of that it was a great reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbwilli1 BEST SPINCAST REEL
I have used ALL the spincast reels from the cheap ones to the most expensive and I can truthfully say this BP Extreme is head and shoulders above all others AND is almost the perfect spincast reel!
The price is mid range, but the features and quality of the reel are exceeded by none of the others on the market! I bought the wide one and after using it myself, bought her a second one!
This reel has features you will find on very few of the other spincast reels! This reel is not huge nor tiny. Sized perfectly and is extremely light! With a 4.6:1 crank ratio that pulls in 27 inches per turn, it is the fastest spincast available! The spool pick-up pin is A BEARING vs a solid pin! The drag system is a very smooth STAR DRAG on the crank handle base vs the very ineffective tiny screw knobs styles you see on most all other spincast reels. The crank handle is a dual knob baitcaster syle and very comfortable. The spool oscillates (moves in and out) upon retrieve (like a spinning reel) and this winds the line level on your spool!
I see one reviewer commented on the push button location being an issue. It is true, if you palm your reels (like I do) yes, you may inadvertently press the release button when setting the hook! The problem is not the button, but the operator. The button works fine, but yes, I would like to see the button changed to a 'flush' design that would allow you to palm the reel and avoid accidentally pressing the release button when setting the hook! This would make this reel PERFECT!
If you are looking for the best spincast reel available today, LOOK NO FURTHER. I
