I was looking at buying a bigger reel for blue catfishing. I have a few Abu 5000 and 6000 and a few other make and model reels like the old BassPro catmaxx, and the Tidewater but I am wanting a good reel that isn't junk. The last few fishing trips I have had trouble with alot of my (cheaper) reels locking up, drag not working right, grinding etc. So I decided to get some bigger reels to handle the pressure a blue can dish out and retire my older cheaper reels to channel cats before they are totally junk. My question is I seen that Catfish Connection has a 7000I RED for $90.60. This seems way too cheap for this reel. I was wondering if it was made in China since I could not find anything on it in the catalog or the internet. If it is made in China does it still have the quality of the Sweden made ones? If anyone has bought one let me know if you liked it or not. I am currently reading the post about the China vs. Sweden now so I hope I'm not missing it in there.
