Take your fishing adventures to the very limits with the Bass Pro Shops Extreme Baitcast reel
It’s your day off yet you’re headed toward the lake long before the sun begins to change the color of the horizon. Some folks might think that’s a little extreme, but you live for time spent on the water. The Bass Pro Shops Extreme Baitcast Reel is a great companion for these adventures because it was built for serious anglers like you.

Extreme Baitcast reels feature a seven-bearing system with Powerlock instant anti-reverse and 12 pounds maximum drag. The Dual Braking System has a centrifugal brake controlling the spool at the beginning of the cast, and a magnetic brake that takes over through the rest of the cast for the ultimate in controllable, smooth, and accurate casting. The Soft Touch thumb bar and oversized EVA handle knob are not only comfortable for those all-day fishing trips, but these features add to the controllability of the reel. Plus, it’s available in both right and left hand retrieves.
