The biggest and best thing that’s ever happened to our reels! Our truly revolutionary Smart Cast Technology applies braking force outward at the beginning of the cast, then inward at the end of the cast, to control the two major backlash potentialities common in other, inferior baitcast reels. We’ve preset the Smart Cast system to the most commonly used setting, but you can adjust it by simply removing the sidecover and moving the braking pins. Fine tuning within each of these settings is even easier—just turn the external cast control to quickly dial in your perfect cast! When properly tuned, the Smart Cast intuitively senses the amount of braking needed to complete your cast, applying or releasing pressure accordingly for precise lure placement on every cast, with no overruns to eat up your valuable fishing time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mylesg my first baitcaster
this was my first baitcasting reel i ever bought, i got it with the tourney special rod and while i was waiting for this to be delivered i was thinking " oh man i hope baitcasting reels arent as tough to use as people say they are" luckily for me, this reel being my first baitcasting reel was almost magical. ive had this reel for two days now and still ive had maybe only two backlashes and that was from personal error. the price too is incredible, $49.99 for this while my other reel, my penn battle 4000 was $100, dont get me wrong that reel is fantastic but this reel is just so great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lsantos Good reel for the price
I bought it in the 5.3 gear ratio for my crankbait rod and spooled it up with 10 lb mono.
I took it fishing yesterday and it performed well, couldn't really test the drag as I only caught a small largemouth, fishing was tough.
It casts reasonably far if you turn off the smart cast and leave only one white pin on.
On a side note, it took me a while to figure out how to pop the side plate off to access the brake system, so here is how to do it in case you get stuck: while you depress the button push the side plate down from where the basspro logo is.
Overall is a good reel for the price, it has a smooth retrieve, is lightweight and it has comfortable eva handles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Budmann Good value and price.
I purchased this on a whim. I have tried using bait cast rigs in the past with less than favorable results. I figured it was time to try again and this combo deal that Bass Pro Shops had seemed like a good start. Everything arrived well packaged and earlier than expected. The instructions are good and a good starting point for setting up the reel. After a few tries I was able to get some decent casts without "bird nesting".
Good quality and feel for the price.
Now if I could only catch a fish!
