Rated 5 out of 5 by justmyluck what a deal!!!!
i have fished opened face reels for over 30 years and finally got a baitcaster... they offer left hand retrieves now. i have to say i am hooked. the BPS pro qualifier handles like a dream.. i don't know what backlash is but have never experienced it. i got a tip from a friend and tried it and never have had a problem yet. the drag is sufficient for large bass, the braking system dialed in right will send your baits FAR!!! i haven't used a spin reel since buying this reel. i haven't tried it with light bait yet but am certain it will handle worms, lizerd, tubes well... i am planning on buying another very soon. if you are looking for a reel with high performance for around 100$ THIS IS YOUR REEL!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jacethefishAce unexpected quality
i recently went to the leeds outdoor world and after a month of basically memorizing the catalog i went to buy a reel. I had a 2008 shimano citica before and i also had a 2005 Quantum Energy as well. this reel retails for cheaper than both and it blows the energy out of the water (u like the pun) and is basically a matter of preference or what your using it for with the citica. The DBS proved to be quite effective once dialed in casting spinnerbaits in 15-20 mph winds with no problem. and once loosened with no wind it was almost dead even in distance with the citica. It was quite and smoother than it as well. this pro qualifier 7:1:1 is an amazing value for the quality and it is dead sexy in person. it is also one of the smallest reels that i felt at the store. so basically if ur looking to spend around 100 on a reel then get this. but i havent tried the new citica.....but this reel has 7 bearings to its 4 is smaller, has a recurve handle. its just a tad heavier. hope this helps yall< your friendly neighborhood reviewerman.

This reel is wonderful, swapped from an abu garcia ambassador that gave me nothing but trouble and was the same price. Completely different experience, fished all morning with no headache, and we put 34 in the boat, A+
