I was told by a BPS employee now s friend of ours that the BPS qualifier baitcasting reels are made by Lews. If that's true it'll be awesome. I just got back from a BPS 20 minutes ago and they're having a sale on they're lines...

No, not entirely. Doyo manufacturers lews, and BPS. And a bunch of other companies. There's a Chinese manufacture and then there's banax and doyo. But, this doesn't mean the products are crap. You need to understand manufacturing. Just because say lews had a problem with one reel, doesn't mean BPS will as well. They most likely have sections of there manufacturing set up so they can monitor QC better.
The BPS pro qualifier was imo one of the best reels to come out of manufacturing like this. It was such a solid all around reel.
It's getting more and more uncommon to have companies actually manufacture there own stuff which is a real shame. But that's because people want things so cheap. They do have to find a way to keep the lights on and I get it.
I think the old BPS FC might have been invisx, I don't think the new stuff is, but it could be. Totally could.
I like BPS reels much better than lews, well.... I used to. Lews feels ultra cheap. You pick up a lews an yep it's gonna be light. But you can tell just by touch that it's made for profit, not for the long haul. The pro qualifier on the other hand was done by the same company doyo and felt great. It worked wonderfully. Yes the brakes where light on the magnetic side but they worked and the reel was extremely tank like.
I really hope this helped. I would recommend people not to worry as much about where these products come from vs how these products perform and feel. It's a practice I don't agree with but they don't GAF. It's not gonna change.
Also, with the advent of social media and reviews we can still find good products, reviews are the best way to weed out the crap.
