    Are you talking about the grey colored low profile baitcaster, Brian? I saw a Revo Premeir reel at BPS a couple of days ago for about $275. It was very light and it's really a bass reel. This may not be the same reel you're talking about, but it's about the lightest baitcaster I've ever seen.

    I'm in the market for a new reel myself, and looked all over the Internet and found their website: http://www.americanpremiercorp.com/reels.html

    They have a reel, check the attachment and see if it's the same one you're talking about.

    DONT BUY THE REEL!! Unless you plan on catching 2lb-ers don't get it! I bought 3 of the same reels. Gears stripped and had to send them back. They are cheap in construction. The factory re-installed gears and bearings and they still sucked. If you're gonna spend $50 go the rogerssportinggoods and buy and abu from them.

    Good luck in your purchase! They make a good rod....I have 3 of the night sticks, but the reels suck!

    I saw those reels the other day when I bought a few Nite Stiks and was wondering the same thing. Thanks for the WARNO on their quality. If you need a cheaper alternative with the same performance, you cant beat Ming Yang CL60 or CZH60 or CLL60 for $34 (same size as the 6500 but with a higher line capacity, equal drag, but the clicker isnt as good.
