went to academy sports today and bought a 6500c3. i noticed that they had another 6500c3 that was a little different color plastic area between the two halves. the clicker was very quiet i could almost not hear it at all. the plastic piece is a light gray the lighter gray has the louder clicker the other one has a dark gray. if anyone is looking at them make sure you check the loudness of the clicker if it matters to you. the guy behind the counter said the reelwith the darker gray plastic is the newer style.
