I had just before Christmas purchased one of these 7000iCS Pro Rockets along with a 6600ext, well the 179.95 ext, that could have been bought for 80. just wasn't worth a dime to me, so Its going back into the box for someones present this year.:wink:... BUUUTTT!!!! The 7000iCS PRO ROCKET, I loaded today with 30#ande and set it on the seeker SU90 Surf. Put a 9" weighted slipfloat on and a extra 1/2oz steel.all together maybe 3 1/4oz.. adjusted the spool a little and took her out back. Bro-s I dropped it down about 3' from the tip and just lobbed it straight forward and I'm hear to tell ya.The thing casted at least 100yrds on 3 different casts,without even trying to get the distanceoooh: Big surprize to me. No tellng how far I can cast this thing on open water.:wink: I just wished I would have bought another one of these instead of ordering that ext, because I bought them back to back the same day seperately, to get the free ABU fishing jackets with each purchase over 150. You live and learn.....I'm definately going to get me another, maybe 3 more. :wink: How many of you guys own this 7000iCS Pro Rocket, and what do you think of the reel?
