    What's up guys one episode Kingston lures on. This video I'm doing a review on the Bass Pro Shops formula real first off really like. This real first thing about the price is really good pretty shirt 65. Or $70 oh my bass pro shops same thing like about. It is the big handle on. These um hard foam grips really like. That right there and the other thing I like about is. It holds a good bit of line. You can't just about. Anything of and the braking system of. This is pretty good. It rights you're not gonna get bad flashes at. Or maybe once every couple hundred cast but. It set on seven that works good for me about. Everything I've thrown. What I throw on this is um Texas rigs maybe a shaky head sometimes Carolina rigs crank baits liquids crank baits. That kind of stuff, so I'm not usually casting like stuff with. This that's the one bad thing about. This reel it doesn't do great with light stuff like. Anything under 3/8 of an ounce probably he's not gonna cast to go. This thing you can you might be able to get away with. It with eight or ten pound line in the breaking set really high. You go be the backlash but it's probably gonna be better do a spinning rod. Or a better bait caster um let's see here. You said it is yeah like. Isaid seven that's better. Iwould set and attention knob. You just drop the bait down. You mess with it until. You get the right drops down really slow. Another thing I like about. You call it a line guy but. Idon't know you guys can see.

    It but it's the thing right there. That does not it does not chip crack. That stuff anyway to fray the line which. Ilike about it's really strong. You can use just about. Any line of this reel. You want to a pretty girl handle braid I've used a little bit on. This reel and then every kind of fluorocarbon but. Ireally like that about. This reel um this doesn't matter too much but the color on. This reel is really good. That on the grave gold looks good. And the gear ratio I have in. This is a 6 6 to 1 now like. Isaid before I throw warm shaky heads test rigs crank baits lipstick. And stuff that works really well crank baits. You don't want a 8 3 2 1. Or a 7 5 1 that kind of stuff. Because so you'll crank. It too fast or you'll have to just get really slow. This weaning crank at normal speed of crank baits.

    And with worms I don't like a super fast real cuz. Most places like she had to slow down but um yeah. That about this reel know the. One thing you have to look at is. You have more expensive reels like a loose custom. Iactually did review on. That I'll put that right there loose custom definitely smoother. Now I'm going to show. You guys some up-close shots that's real senior really good look at. It okay you enjoyed. That video um before. Iend just to say new upload schedule. Now gonna be uploading Monday 6:30 am Fridays at 3:30 pm probably gonna have. One of these type of videos for views tackle tips. That kind of stuff so. You enjoy this video. And yeah see you guys a nice.
