I can't speak to the rods but I do a lot of repair and cleaning of all series of BPS reels. The pro qualifier a good reel for the price. The key is taking care of it and keeping the maintenance up at least annually if night bi annually. By maintenance I mean a complete tear down, cleaning, lubrication and oil on the bearings. If you keep the maintenance up the reel will last.
Are there better reels? Sure, but they are better money too. I think for the money, BPS has stepped up their game about ten years ago and dollar for dollar I believe they are as good as any Daiwa, Shimano, or Lews.
