Bass Pro Shops Johnny Morris CarbonLite Baitcaster

A tournament quality baitcaster must be the total package of bullet-proof performance, all-day casting comfort, refined finesse, and - at times - raw power. The features of the Bass Pro Shops® Johnny Morris CarbonLite reel fit the bill as naturally as it fits your casting hand.

At only 5.8 ounces, the list of fish-catching, fish-fighting features packed into the Bass Pro Shops® Johnny Morris CarbonLite 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 guarantee 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.

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. There's even a left-handed option.

Bass Pro Shops® Johnny Morris CarbonLite baitcasting reel carries on the renowned legacy of performance and is available at http://www.basspro.com/ and your nearest Bass Pro Shops® store.
