If you fish tournaments, you've seen plenty of Bass Pro Shops Pro Qualifier Spinning Reels in use. The reason: tourney anglers need smooth, reliable reels they can count on, and for many the Pro Qualifier Reel remains the hands-down performance standard. Our finest version yet has retained the ultra-slim body design, popular Mag Spool Technology™, and premium eight-bearing system with double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings and Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse. But we’ve added our Carbon Fiber Sealed Drag, a major upgrade for long-term smoothness, power, and consistency—you’ll love it! Meanwhile, all the tourney-grade features are here: the lightweight anodized-aluminum body/sidecovers; forged-aluminum spool; stainless steel bail wire and mainshaft; strong machined-aluminum handle. Includes a FREE spare aluminum spool.
Line recovery in inches per handle turn.

Works ok. Good drag. Price w extra spool is great. However, design wise it is a bit clunky. No. 1 the distance from the Rod to the line take-up (where your finger grabs the line) is way too far! A big reach slows your casting down and is awkward (am big guy, normal hand size) - so why such a long stand off?
Further, combine this design with the angle out on the handle (away from the reel) and the whole thing is Clunky - makes putting it next to other Rods a real challenge, as the handle sticks out a mile and same for putting it into a boat Rod holder / locker - it just. tangles with other rods lines. I just do not see why the design is the way it is - NOT compact at all.
I would find another reel of similar stats for Line vs. Drag etc. next time and compare size in person for sure.

I love this reel! This is my third one. The speed is unreal and the durability is great. I run top water frogs and buzz baits all summer and spinnerbaits spring and fall so I need a fast, strong, work horse and this reel is everything I need. It's worth every penny. I cannot say enough good about it. Buy one! Buy two and save on shipping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by illinoishunt Favorite Reel
Bought this reel in PQ10 and PQ20 and by far my favorite reels. Smooth operation and built very solid. Mag spool makes longer casts and helps reduce line memory when using mono line. Weight is heavier than some, but its a full metal body instead of half plastic like most. For the money you can't beat these reels. Paired both reels with UglyStik GX2 rods, my ultimate setups without breaking the bank for the crappie, bass, and walleye fishing I do.
