I'm thinking of purchasing a new rod and reel combo for next year. I've been using my 6500 C3 for 15 years or so, put it through hell, sand, mud, and shad slime, and the thing still works like new. Alot of catters seem to go with a 7000 over the 6500. I know with the old heavy dacron lines, line capacity used to be an issue, but no more with the superlines. I use 65lb PP for flats and it handles just fine. Any thoughts on why I should look at a 7000 over a new 6500? Thanks!
