Anybody own one of these, what comments do ya have good, bad. Looks like a Shimono TLD-25 copy to me. I saw them at the Bass Pro Shop in Orlando, when I went there looking at the TLDs. Looking for a setup for high speed trolling for Wahoo.
I have 4 TLD 25 reels. have fished the past 10 years for ocean fishing for several trips a year. have never had a problem, and have never taken apart any reel. Do wash them off with fresh water after every trip and spray with wd40
My question is: Who fixes BPS stuff when it breaks or needs parts? Who actually makes those reels? Can you get parts? I have a couple BPS reels and have never needed repair but say I do, where do I turn?
