    For any of you Abu fans or you that like using line counter reels, I ran across these reels on Cabelas website this morning. They have a line counter on them and have the Carbon matrix drag system and have 3 bearings. They also have the same line capacities as the reg. Abu 5500 and 6500. I don't think many of us use these type reels but, just thought I would share it with you all.

    Why in the world would you need a counter? Maybe a dumb question but i have never seen anyone using a reel with a counter on it.

    When you are trolling you would set the lure to a certain depth.

    I can't see a practical use for it in catfish though
