    I have about a dozen 6500c3 2speed reels and 10 5500c3 2speed reels. I use them all the time. What I like about them is the lower ratio (3.8:1). If you use circle hooks the lower ratio helps alot, it won't rip the hook out like the higher ratios will. If you have alot of fish come unglued before you get them in , you need one of these. Great reels but hard to find. Most of them have been taken apart and put back together wrong and don't work like they are supposed to. If you get one that don't work right send it to Forans reel service in Florida, he has fixed all of mine and upgraded them also.
