Consider this our rebellion against todays ''throw-away'' mindset. We think a high-performance reel should last awhile! And it starts right here. The Johnny Morris Signature Series Spinning Reel not only retains the awesome performance profile of the original award-winning version, but locks it in with our sealed aluminum body construction. The frame and side plates are as light and strong as ever, but dust and debris can't get in, so the lube retains its viscosity, wear is reduced, and interior parts continue to function crisply. (We still recommend regular maintenance, of course.) To double-ensure durability, we added our sealed carbon fiber drag. Carbon is unmatched for dissipating drag heat, and our six-washer system is sealed tight for ultimate smoothness at all times. With its die-cast aluminum chassis, stainless steel main shaft, zinc-alloy drive gear, and hardened brass pinion gear, it's obvious this reel will be around awhile! Other features include Mag Spool Technology package with Ti-coated bail wire and oversized roller, premium 11-bearing system with shielded stainless steel ball bearings and Powerlock instant anti-reverse, forged aluminum spool and handle, and a FREE aluminum spare spool.
Line recovery in inches per handle turn.

Owned this reel for one fishing trip. I was very disappointed. The reel was not smooth at all! Compared to other reels, it took effort to turn, where many others that cost almost half take ZERO effort.
When casting, the reel line holder would grab the line and try to snap the line. It never broke the line, but it damaged it enough I needed to retie.
Returned it and based on other negative reviews about Bass Pro reels, went and bought a Pflueger President. Great move. I'm on the Bass Pro website right now because I want another Pflueger President. Also just bought one for my dad.

I've had the JM20 for over 2 years and it has been great. Incredibly smooth and easy to use. I have it paired with a Carrot Stix 7'0" M and have caught many 5+, 6+, and 7+ bass on it. I am hoping to get another one this Christmas to pair with a new Duckett Ghost rod. Overall great reel for the money. Like using it more than my Abu Garcia Revo SX.

I own 4 of these reels, 2 of them are 3 years old and have never had any problems with them if they are cleaned and lubricated after/before each season (1 time a year) they will give many years of problem free service.

This is the 3rd reel I have purchased in the 5000 series Johnny Morris for striper fishing on the Coosa River system in Georgia. I used the first two I purchased for 2 years and have had no issues, they are durable and I punish them with river fishing- using them with medium heavy down rods for striper fishing. I use 17lb test line and have not lost a fish in the current, as the drag is easy to set. The price of the reel is great. I plan to buy more of them.
