    I was at the new Academy Store in Killeen, TX today and WOW finally saw a 7000c3 in person and felt it. This is the smoothest reel I have ever seen in my life :crazy: now I know why everyone likes them, it feels better than any spinning reel or baitcaster I have ever used and I bet that reel can cast a country mile or two. But at a price tag of $149.99, I couldnt explain that one to the ol lady since im supposed to finally get my Pontoon this comin week. I thought the 6500c3 was nice too but it was $78.99 so I just got a Penn 309 for $54.99. Gonna put 300yds of 65 or 80 PP on it for a Heavy Rod. In a couple months though im gonna get that 7000 to put on a brand spankin new 8' Berkley Glow stick I have in my closet collecting dust. Gotta buy a bait tank and 10 Rod Holders for the Boat first :wink: I saw a nice bait tank in the store 30 gallon for only $84.99 and they had some nice rod holders for $12.99. May do Monster's though. What was funny is the 209 was $59.99 and the 309 was $54.99, I asked them was this a sale, they said no its the everyday price. Why would the 209 be more than the 309? Just wanted to share with you guys. What was funny was

    yes it would be hard for me to explain a $150 reel also, but the Penn 309 is a good reel also......good luck with the pontoon boat!
