We deliberately overbuilt this Captain's Choice Reel to give you one of the strongest 4/0-class reels available, at a price you can easily afford. Designed for tough duty all around. The 1-piece machined-aluminum frame remains flex-free even under heavy strain, keeping the internals in-line and operating smoothly. Inside, a stainless steel pinion gear and 4 stainless steel ball bearings deliver crisp steady retrieves, and the stacked multi-washer drag offers efficient, dependable performance no matter how much pressure you need to apply. Wt.: 28 oz. Line capacity: 30 lbs./475 yds. Gear ratio: 3:1.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cqforeman Great for the Price
I work on a Head Boat on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and we use a combination of penn senator 4/0's and capt. choice 4/0's. I must say that i prefer the capt. choice. They seem to be very durable and believe me when i say that we know how to abuse a reel, not to mention the gear ratio is much better. The only problem I've found with them is that the bearing on the left side of the reel seems to fall out and get lost very easily. If bass pro can come up with a way to fix the bearing problem it will be hands down one of the most durable reels you can find for the price.
I've been using a drop of thread locker on the bearing threads and it seems to help a little.

hello, i bought this reel a few years back and i have used it many times over and over, i try to keep a well maintained care and clean for the reel, but recently my spool tension screw broke and stripped from the reel and i was wandering if there is any way i can get just the part instead of another whole reel.
