Our top-of-the-line Bass Pro Shops® Johnny Morris® Signature Series Bass Caster Reel puts the power of carbon into your hands, to revolutionize your fishing. You won’t find this kind of value anywhere else!

Bulletproof inside and out: With its tough diecast aluminum frame and side-plates and lustrous black carbon-titanium deposition finish, your reel will still look awesome years from now. The double-anodized-aluminum spool floats on premium Japanese stainless steel ball bearings, part of a 100% double-shielded 10-bearing system that includes Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse. The hardened Duralumin drive gear is flanked by three special-purpose carbon washers to ensure perfect meshing, for totally smooth winding power with no torque, ever.

Performance plus: Our popular Dual Braking System delivers virtually backlash-free casting. Top-drawer features include: a beefed-up, super-smooth carbon drag system; lightweight carbon-fiber Recurve handle with ribbed silicone knob; padded clutch bar; and titanium-nitride line guide.

DBS Dual Braking System
The best of both worlds...six-pin centrifugal brake maintains control during the beginning of the cast; as the spool slows, the magnetic brake takes over to ''feather'' your cast perfectly!

Padded Custom Reel Case
FREE Padded custom reel case included with each Signature Series reel.

Sleek Recurve handle and Star Drag design sits closer to the body for more leverage and further weight reduction!.

The spool shaft rides on two premium, double-shielded ball bearings specifically treated to resist corrosion even in rugged saltwater conditions.

A: 
you want to add oil to all (1-3) of the spool bearings. They are possibly located in the side plate, on the spool itself, and under the tension knob. Some reels use plastic bushings in these places instead of bearings. Its best to look at the schematics that came with the reel and go from there. Just add a drop of oil in the crevice towards the center of the bearing. Good luck!

A: 
This reel works fantastic with braid. Ive used 50lb to 70lb braid on my johnny morris with success. I am currently trying out 65lb Powerpro super 8 line. I would recommend going with any 8 strand braid vs the 4-6 strand braids. It makes a big difference in both casting performance and smooth retrieval. I will never go back to using a 4-6 strand braid.

How to set-up DBS on reel

A: 
Here's what has worked for me. Open up the side hatch and have 3 brakes on (pull every other tab outward) and the other 3 brakes off (push the remaining tabs inward until it clicks in). Turn the magnetic brakes on the side to 0 and adjust the spool tension knob so that the lure falls very slowly when the thumb bar is engaged. I then set the magnetic brakes to 7 for everyday routine fishing...maybe 5 if I need a super long cast. This is an unbelievably great reel--experiment with the settings.

Keep in mind the fewer brakes you use...the more likely an over run if you throw it too hard. Pros know how to cast with no brakes. I'm not a pro. I want to fish...I don't want to spend Saturday mornings picking at back-lashes. I get plenty of casting distance with the set up I described. Best wishes.

A: 
you can use the magnetic brakes on the side of the reel and then you pop the side open and then set the pin brakes. i recoment to disengage all your brakes by pushing them inward then engage 2 brakes and they have to be across from each other. and the magnetic brake i would set at 10 and then work your way down as you get comfortable.

A: 
No comparison. Get the Johnny Morris. The Abu Revo SX is very, very temperamental. For me, using the Revo SX is like shaving with a straight razor. It's a great reel that casts enormous distances, but it'll cut you badly once in a while.The same cast you were using all morning can result in an enormous backlash out of the blue.

The Johnny Morris DBS is the key. That's the difference between the JM and the Revo SX (magnetic only). Work on it and dial in those brakes. You'll be able to throw it to the point where you won't need your thumb for the landing of the lure...I don't recommend that...I'm just saying that's how good the Johnny Morris reel is. It's a work of art. I engage 3 centrifugal brakes and set the magnetic brakes around 6 or 7 and I can cast 30 yards no problem. I'm not a pro--that's plenty of distance for me. I find that the Revo SX casts further, but the consistency of the Johnny Morris far outweighs that strength.

A: 
I have had the Revo SX and I found that it was hard to use! It has a steep learning curve, where as the Johny Morris is extremely user friendly! It sets up quick and cast like a dream, as for the distance it's about the same for me anyway. But I guess that goes whit experience!

You can get the Revo if you like, it's an awesome reel, I just found it hard to use.

My passe is more the Johny Morris! The dual braking system is super, but like any other casting reel, if your not careful it will overrun! Just a bit of practice. As far as the extra ten pounds of drag, it doesn't really mater, there are some casting reels that only have three pounds of drag and they work great. The trick is to have an educated thumb!

Saltwater usage?

Details: 
I understand this reel is categorized under freshwater, and I have been using this reel for freshwater fishing. However, since I moved closer to the coast now, I was wondering if it will be fine to use this reel in saltwater? Maybe a quick rinse after?

A: 
It should be OK. If you rinse and dry after each use, or as soon as possible! Also you WILL HAVE TO clean,oil,lube after every third or fourth trip out! It can be a bit of a pain, but that way you will be sure that your reel will last a long time! I have reels which I use for saltwater, that are four, five years old. They work just fine, but I take them apart and clean them every other week, or six trips to the saltwater!

On the left side is an oval button, a little smaller than a dime. Press this and turn the side plate and it comes off. The centrifugal drags are inside on the spool.

A: 
The handles are rubber, they feel like the reel grips that are so popular. This reel would handle 30 but Id say 20 is more of a good fit. You wouldnt have much line if you spool it with 30. 20 lb braid would be far to thin to put on a baitcaster. Whatever line diameter the reel is rated for is what size braid you would want. In this case it would be 50 or 65 braid. Many anglers make this mistake and dont understand why the braid digs into itself so bad. Spinning gear is more suited for small braid. This reel will cast as far and as accurate as any on the market. The only limitations will be your skill set with a baitcaster. Good Luck!

A: 
To get to the brake pins, you need to remove the side plate by pressing in the basspro logo and twisting the side plate counter clockwise. Anything over 14lb test diameter will greatly effect your casting performance. I would stick with 12lb diameter mono or 50-55lb braid as it is equivalent to 12lb diameter mono. This reel will hold 120yards of 12lb diameter line, so you should have plenty of room to let a fish run. This reel will cast as far and accurately as any other baitcaster, buy it with confidence.

A: 
The Pro Qualifier is a great reel at a great value and an even better value when Its on sale. That being said, The Johnny Morris is one of the smoothest reels I have used. I feel that the Johnny Morris is more durable due to it using more metal parts vs the Pro Qualifiers plastic. I have had the Pro Qualifiers plastic line guide assembly fail on me where the Johnny Morris' metal line guide assembly has never failed me. You will be fine with either reel as they both cast great. Good Luck!
