    if the 7000i is so good why not get the 9000 or 10000 for increased line capsity:confused2:

    Once you take a step to a bigger yet reel it makes it harder to long bomb like casts. If you are going to get one make sure it's the new one "i".

    If fishing from a boat the 9000 and 1000 would be a good choice but the 7000's are easier to cast if going for big yardage.They are lighter and have casting breaks.

    I have only had my 9000BG about a month and used it a few time, so far I love it no problems and no complaints.

    The two larger reels will have more line capacity and more heavy duty. But you are going to sacrifice casting distance. They are also going to be bulcky. If you are fishing from a boat, ok. If your casting frim the bank,probably not. The 7000 will do it all and with ease. I own several 7000c3 and they preform beautiful.
