Our upgraded Bass Pro Shops® Extreme® Low-Profile Baitcast Reels feature our tournament-proven Dual Braking System™—the combination of the automatic centrifugal brake and the manually adjustable magnetic brake controls the initial, intermediary, and final stage of the cast to give you a perfect landing every time. The double-anodized V-grooved spool is free-floating for virtually zero friction, and ported for additional weight reduction. And our new drag is truly a breakthrough—the four-disc Aramid fiber/Stainless steel washer drag system smoothly exerts resistance of up to 12 lbs. on the meanest, hardest-fighting fish, while at the same time dissipating heat better than anything we’ve ever seen…resulting in the most powerful, longest-lasting, stick-free drag you’ve ever experienced in a baitcast reel! Other standard features include one-piece cast, then CNC-machined aluminum frame; easy-access sideplate with push-button release for ease of maintenance; titanium nitride-coated line guide; seven-bearing system (six premium double-shielded stainless steel plus one Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse); Recurve handle; and click drag star. Stacy King himself tested this reel under the most rigorous conditions for a year and a half before we decided to release it, and he gives it top marks for performance, durability, and extreme fish-dominating power!
Our Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Extreme® Trigger Rods start out with an immensely powerful yet feather-light 60-million-modulus Powerwall™ IM9 graphite blank that has the butt section wrapped with a new diamond weave carbon fiber to enhance lifting power. We top the blank with virtually frictionless, mirror-polished Fuji® aluminum oxide guides, and we finish the blank with the most durable clear-coat available. The grips are turned from ultra-premium-grade cork, with our exclusive PowerHump® handle to aid in balance and enhance fish-turning power. The full-contact, Soft Touch reel seat puts your fingers directly on the blank so you can feel even the softest bite. The result is a fishing rod that is farthest removed from the ordinary, that is anything but the usual suspect, and that far exceeds what you expect from a rod at this price point. By definition, these rods truly are extreme! The three-Piece Travel model breaks down to a nice compact size that you can keep in your trunk or carry on a plane to avoid high baggage fees and comes with a nylon rod sock and crushproof 31" rod tube with Cordura® cover.
