    I just wanted to remind everyone that Abu Garcia made some upgrades on there reels for 2006..A new Carbon Matrix drag which is 30 percent stronger, and a 20 percent stronger level wind system, plus some new gearing..I just bought a new 6500 C3 and it has some cosmetic changes also, it's probably my new favorite reel.

    I just came home with one of last years models. Wally is clearing out the shelves for bow season. No box, no papers $50. 10 dollars cheaper than the 6000 I went to buy.

    I definitely like the improvements they have made. My only gripe with my '04 6500C3 models was the drag and I solved that by going with Carbontex. It appears they have saved us from having to do some aftermarket tinkering to get things just right.

    I agree, I just picked one up a couple of weeks ago. Has to be the smoothest reel ever.

    I have been "upgrading equipment" this year as well. Just had to have one of the new Record Abu's. It may be expensive, but boy do I love it. Kind of killed the tackle budget for a while.

    So far I have bought 2 of them and I really like new look and so far have not had any problems with either one of them.
