Gear of the Week: Bass Pro Shops Johnny Morris CarbonLite Baitcaster

At only 5.8 ounces the list of fish-catching, fish-fighting features packed into the Bass Pro Shops Johnny Morris CarbonLite reel seems nearly impossible. At the core is a one-piece, machined, aircraft-grade aluminum frame. Duralumin main gear and crankshaft of specially hardened aluminum are rugged yet light weight. Nine stainless steel double shielded ball bearings, a Powerlock anti-reverse bearing, and the titanium nitride-coated line guide guarantees silky smooth casting and fish whipping power. The Dual Braking System features both centrifugal and magnetic control on every cast.

Six alternating carbon fiber and stainless steel discs comprise the CarbonLite's precision drag system, making it smooth, reliable, and precise. The CarbonLite puts you in complete control of every fish you fight. The total package is wrapped in strong carbon composite side covers with a carbon fiber recurve handle wearing big, comfortable, powerful EVA grips. There's even a left-handed option.

The Bass Pro Shops Johnny Morris CarbonLite baitcaster lineup includes retrieve speeds to match every fishing style. Line capacity is 120 yards of 12-pound mono or 100 yards of 50-pound braid.
