    It'll work great for catfishing. It's a 7000 with a smaller line capacity. It's like using a 7000 with the same amount of line as a 6000. I don't really see much use for them. If I'm gonna use the smaller amount of line, I want a smaller, more compact reel.

    I have 1 7000 and one 9000

    $90.00 plus shipping although I think the 9000 is sold.



    Slimy, call me.

    DemoMan.............I have this exact same reel, got it about a month ago from BPS. I'm very happy with it, love the 5.3-1 ratio. Another very solid reel from ABU, I haven't fished it yet just casting in the yard. It is very smooth and casts very very easy. You will be disipointed.
