Drag system with six alternating carbon fiber and stainless washers
Bass Pro Shops® CarbonLite™ Micro Guide Trigger Rods:
Featherweight 85 million modulus carbon fiber blank
Ultra-low-profile Pac Bay micro guides
Advanced P-Tec polyfoam grips
Super-light two-piece Soft Touch reel seat
Weighing in at less than 6 ounces, the Bass Pro Shops® Johnny Morris® CarbonLite™ Baitcast Reel fuses carbon-fiber construction with machined aircraft-grade aluminum, but weighs little more than an average apple! Built on a one-piece aluminum frame, with Duralumin gears and shaft, this bantamweight fighter bristles with pure power. The CarbonLite baitcaster is packed with features, including a V-grooved, ported, machined Duralumin spool; 10 stainless steel, double-shielded ball bearings; our time-tested and tournament proven Dual Braking System™; titanium nitride-coated line guide to virtually eliminate line friction; carbon fiber Recurve handle; and our smooth, powerful drag system with six alternating carbon fiber and stainless washers to help you tame the most vicious fish in the water.
When the fish have lockjaw and you really have to work for every bite, the Bass Pro Shops® CarbonLite™ Micro Guide Trigger Rod is the rod you need. We took our popular CarbonLite™ Original Trigger Rod and shot its sensitivity right through the roof! We’ve kept the featherweight 85 million modulus carbon fiber blank designed for the ultimate fusion of power and sensitivity. We've also kept the nearly weightless P-Tec polyfoam grips and the super-light two-piece Soft Touch reel seat with the maximum amount of exposed blank: they’re both compatible with mono, fluoro or braided superlines. We've replaced the original guideset with extreme-high tech Pac Bay micro guides—11 perfectly-calibrated, stainless steel guides plus tip, all with hard Hialoy inserts. These tiny guides precisely focus the flow of your line, eliminating flutter for longer casts and the ultimate in sensitivity. And with all possible excess weight trimmed away, you get an almost superhuman sense of feel.
Rated 5 out of 5 by reavis I usually don't write reviews
This is something that I normally don't do but I want everyone to know this is a heck of a deal. I bought a 7-6 heavy action combo a year and a half ago and fished hard with it. I really like it, I fish Carolina rigs and jigs with it and day after day it works hard for me. I really didn't realize how good a deal this was until last weekend when my fishing buddy let me tryout his new outfit.He spent 600 dollars on a rod and reel and even though it was nice I think mine was just as good maybe even better.

Best rod reel combo I've bought thus far. If you know how to tie an arbor knot, an albright knot, and cast a baitcast, this is the BOMB. I've caught some big fish, but I can't say where...hahaha. Super light carbon rod, super smooth reel, and ohhhh the fish love the jig. Get you one and practice. Beats the Shimanos, the Daiwas, and the Pflueggers. Best bang for your buck. You'll be a pro before you know it.

Just got this combo rod and reel, and own many Quantum and Abu Garcia combos. It matches up if not surpasses them all. This unit is so light that there is no way you will get fatigued casting it all day. I put 30 lb braid on and threw a crank bait as far as I wanted with no problems. But the combo is very stout and flexes its muscle when it needs too. So impressed with the weight and smoothness, will be a BPS fan forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jakesworld Great combo!
Ok I read the other reviews and decided to purchase this combo based on the weight and description of the grips. I have to say this combo performed flawlessly! Second cast of the day (while bass fishing) I happened to set the hook on an 18 pound carp and thanks to the strike king jig I knew it wasn't coming off! The rod and reel handeled great while fighting this fish. 8 mineuts later my partner was able to net this monster. I have several carrot sticks that are very light and strong and I have this combo set up as my go to rig. Worth every penny!
