    Depends on what type waters you are fishin'. If you are in deep water more, the extra line capacity of the 7000 would be handy. I rarely fish water over 25 or 30 feet deep, and the 6500 suit my needs just fine.

    I like the 7000 model, but I wouldn't get the Big game model. The ambassadeur is a better model for me. The Big Game model works like the salt water rigs in that it does not automatically engage the reel when you crank the handle. Of course, if you are used to this feature it will not bother you.
