GEAR REELS Posted Dec 22, 2014 Gear of the Week: Bass Pro Shops Extreme Series Spinning Reel The new Bass Pro Shops Extreme Series Spinning Reel justly and proudly bears the label "Extreme." This reel is tough enough to take anything you or the tournament trail can throw at it. When you're fishing tournaments, you need to count on gear that will take the abuse cast after cast, fish after fish, snag after snag, and day after long-tournament day. The Extreme Spinning Reel's precision engineering also means less wear and tear on you. It is extremely strong, extremely reliable, and extremely comfortable. The Extreme Series Spinning Reel incorporates Mag Spool Technology with forged aluminum spools 30% wider than standard spinning reels to wind more line with each revolution. Fewer turns mean less line twist and better lay resulting in longer casts and extends the life of the line. The 6-bearing system with Powerlock instant anti-reverse and super-smooth sealed carbon fiber drag gives you complete control on every hook up. The skeletonized rotor and frame affords extreme resistance-free performance. The Bass Pro Shops Extreme Series Spinning Reel includes sizes and line capacities to meet every need and is available at your nearest Bass Pro Shops store. The Extreme Series Spinning Reels retail for $59.99. via The Fishing Wire Click here for more gear articles & videos!
