Bass Pro Shops Reel Covers - Spinning
This is my second order of these BassPro Shops spinning reel covers. They fit well and they work. I kept my reels covered all winter and was happy to see no dust or dirt accumulation on the surfaces. The one size fits all has so far worked very well with the exception of one very larrge saltwater reel. The materiall is rugged and the Velcro closure is adequate. I would definitely suggest this product to those serious about keeping thier investments safe and clean.

Slightly misleading packaging
I bought this product to protect my Quantum Smoke PT 50 spinning reel. I drove 50+ miles home and when I tried it out, it would not accommodate my reel with the handle on the right side (I'm left-handed). No where on the packaging did it mention anything about this. I then looked on the website, and only there does it mention anything about it being for left-sided handles (right handed fishing). It's frustrating that the closest Bass Pro Shops are at least 50 miles in either direction of my location (Destin & Spanish Fort stores) so returning this product will be a chore. Hopefully my boyfriend will be willing to use it on his Penn Spinfisher V, but I will still be without protection for my nice reel I am trying to take good care of. I thought about switching the handle over before and after use in order to transport it without dings and sand/dirt getting on it, but I don't want to have to take my reel apart (especially out in the elements like salty air at the beach) to have this case fit. I suppose I will return to my original idea and see if the craft store has neoprene and all to make my own solution. Wish it would have worked though...

These reel covers are okay for storage, but they aren't the best fitting nor are they the best protection out there for a reel. They do cover my large variety of spinning reel sizes, with the exception of a reel that has two handles (T handle) on the crank. I can't say I am impressed by the quality but they appear to do the job of keeping dust out of my reels while in storage. That's what I bought them for.

Got two for my spinning reels which I use very often. Good for keeping out dust, but not really that durable for other things like small drops and such. I noticed the material tears open relatively easy, but I'd expect them from metal on the inside rubbing on rocks on the outside. The good thing is they're pretty inexpensive, and look stylish like you mean business when you get on the river.
