    Hey I was wanting to which on of these abu Garcia's reel would you choose. I want to get one of them I am just torn between which one to get. I like them both but the wallet says only one.

    While the TCCF would be a great reel I would go with the 7000, to me the TCCF is too pretty to use LOL.

    I choose the 6500 TCCF! I have a pair of them and they are awesome.

    I own a 7000 and a tccf. Both are great reels. If you only fish channels or big fish on open water, the tccf would be a good choice. But if you need to stop a big fish right now, go with the 7000.

    Hands down the 7000. The Abu 7000 is a tryed and true workhorse of a reel.

    I myself would go with the 6500. I don't like the 7000 at all. JMHO. I have caught many big fish on the 6500 and use braided line so line capacity is not a problem either. I would defenitly get the 6500.

    do yourself the best favor you have eveer done. go with the 6500 tccf. one of the smoothest reels abu makes. its actually a c4 with crank speed of a c3 at 5:3:!. this thing is a winch.
