When we upgraded our Extreme, we asked ourselves a simple question: what does the hard-working American fisherman want in a spinning reel? The answer immediately became clear: you want an exceptional reel at a reasonable price. So we rounded up all the usual suspects from our proven past models: minimal weight, efficient and powerful gearing, rock-solid frame—and then we bundled them with a few special touches that you can only get at Bass Pro Shops. These include our Mag Spool Technology, with a 30% wider spool for faster pickup and less twist; an oversized titanium-nitride coated roller; our smooth and powerful Carbon Fiber Drag System with a stack of three carbon/three stainless steel discs; and our six stainless steel bearing system with Powerlock instant anti-reverse.
We believe our updated Extreme is the answer to all your spinning reel needs. It’s built to perform flawlessly; it’s designed to endure years of hard fights and keep coming back; and we’ve kept the price down to a level that allows anyone to own one. Plus, with four models to choose from, you can tackle just about anything that swims. Standard features include: one-piece aluminum frame with sealed sideplates; ported, forged aluminum spool; super-light graphite rotor; left- or right-hand retrieve; stainless steel shaft and bail wire; titanium nitride-coated roller; machined-aluminum handle with Soft Touch knob; and a FREE spare aluminum spool.
Thinner and stronger! Solid aluminum sideplates contain the gears and prevent flex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lighthorse Exceptional ree l. . . but
I have purchased five of the reels, all in the 40 series. My first was an "American Reel" before Bass Pro bought them out.
My first love is the large spool, makes casting easier, longer, retrieves faster.
I read complaints about the drag. My exerience is very smooth, consistent and durable.
However -- two of my reels have broken, one where the handle meets the reel, the other at the anti-reverse lever. I feel that the metal casting is too thin.
The other problem is probably not a problem at all. The anti-reverse is infinite. If they manufactured a little slack into the system, be bale would trip more easily.
I do not like either problem, but I will live with both because I love the reel so much.
My next spinning reels will be BPS 40 series, though I will keep receipts and whine bich and moan if another breaks at the casting.

I have to admit that I've never been one to flock to anything with a store's branding on it, so I usually didn't take the Bass Pro Shops rods & reels seriously. And then I tried them. And to my surprise, I was VERY satisfied! The reel is being used during a little bass club and fun fishing, and is performing very well. Very smooth, very little flex, great casting distance on a 6'6" rod throwing a popper on 25lb braid. BPS did a great job here! Definitely worth a try if you're fishing on a budget!

I have 2 of this model since 2 years ago. I used them hard and they never let me down.
Like this reel so that I'm willing to by other stuff with Bass Pro brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chad13 Great reel until....
This was by far my most favorite reel that I own right now and i have caught over 100 bass in the 4 month period that I have owned it. But, recently at my local pond i noticed that the shaft stopped moving up and down. This caused the line being retreived to all lay on the same part of the spool. This caused terrible twists every single cast. I am sending the reel back to either get replaced or repaired and hopefully i won't have this problem again. Maybe it was just a defective one. I don't know. Overall this was a great reel during the time it worked and i would recommend to anybody besides the flaw.
