    $28 refurb at the berkley outlet last week. They aren't THAT durable that a used one is a rockin deal unless it is 1/2 price.

    Where can you buy a new 6500 for about 60 dollars? If you know of a place, please let me know. I would buy several at that price. I sure haven't found any for that kind of money.

    Are you saying the 6500 is not that durable of a reel? I always thought just the opposite,I thought that they were a very durable reel. Sure seems like they are a very popular reel,for not being very durable.JMO

    I think the 60 dollar reel littlebigman was refering to is the 6000 at Wal Mart, they're about 60.00. The 6500 C3 is about 85 to 90 dollars. If you're not concerned about the looks of the reel, just get the 6000, replace the spool bushings with bearings, and you've got a 6500. cheaper that way.

    6500 durability....I have a 6500 that I bought new in 1994 or 95. It has been used in saltwater and freshwater. I have caught reds, trout, cats, stripers, etc with it and it still functions fine. Durablility of any reel has a lot to do with how it is cared for.

    I have 3-6500C3 reels and would not take $50 apiece for any of them. They are VERY durable. Cathooker and I were talking about 6500's on Saturday and believe that they are the 30-30 of the cat reels. Most everybody has one and they will get the job done in all but the most extreme circumstances.

    there are different models too. The 6500 c3 is about 80 bucks. The 6500 black max is a little over 50 at academy's. Then you have the trophy hunter for around 100 dollars. It depends on what model it is before a value should be placed on it.:eek:oooh:
