Like I said I know abus are good reels but never heard anything about omoto either so it seems apples to apples but one is green and one is red some people like one and others like the other I'm sure either reel would give me years of fun

Nathan ... I think you'd better re-read that statement. It's the "if I like you Military Discount". Haha. But not to worry ... sign up for the Renegade emails and you still can take advantage of some deals. I just got 2 Omoto 7000s with the unadvertised 10% discount.

You ole crafty son of a gun!
Nobody was supposed to pick up on that.
But you are correct, I am an equal opportunity disliker.
With Renegade, it is not tied directly to my ability to eat, or keep the lights on.
With no pressure, Renegade is fun, like the USCA is to me.
Many people who talk with me on the phone are often surprised that I try to talk them out of a purchase, or talk them towards a cheaper alternative.
I am really bad with the Lever Drags on loosing sales.
Treat People Right, you can never go wrong, because you never really know who you are dealing with.
Perfect example, a gent wanted a Lever Drag and I attempted to talk him out of it, but based on the talk, I could see that my customer service problems would be minimal based on his experience in the outdoors. After an inventory issue, we went for it.
Yesterday he sent me an e-mail, happy with the outfit.
Who was this gent? An IRS Investigator.
I wanted to let you know that my rod and reel arrived today. I am impressed I tried casting it in the back yard and had no problems. I am already thinking about replacing my (4) E-cat's with the R-2. I will check your website from time to time but don't be surprised when you see the order. Any other recommendations to enhance my arsenal would be greatly appreciated.

Ha ... I guess that craftiness comes from old (or I'd rather say - advancing) age. And for those reading this thread, I will back up what Paul just said. I've had him call me out of the blue on more than one occassion to discuss an order, and I have called him twice to get an opinion before making a purchase. Not too many places out there that will give you that kind of personal service.

I use an Omoto 5000 and an Abu 5000 winch side by side and they both perform the same . The Omoto is a tad bit bigger , which holds more line . Other then that they are the same performance wise . I have reeled in large fish on both with no problems .
Out of the two I like the Omoto best because it has a stronger drag system .
