    Whats it that makes it so attractive? For me, its the smoothness and distance it can cast. Theres no reel I encountered that can cast better.

    As far as construction, casting, drag, line capacity goes for their price range I don't think they can be beat.

    I love the new abu's much better than the old ones, they have a much improved drag..a 150 dollar reel is much better than a bargin basement reel.

    Abu's are junk. They are absolutely worthless. If I was you guys I'd get rid of all of them. Especially the older ones. If you have any of them just send me a P.M. I'll send you my address. I'll pay to ship every one of them to me, and I will personally see that they get disposed of properly.:wink:

    I got a new one off ebay a while back and the guy had issues with his e-mail account. Something that it kept going to an old addy? Anyway i canceled the paypal payment. Fellow called me today and said he was putting it in the mail and for me to send him $30 after it arrives. Last new one i bought was 90 bux. This one being shipped is a 6500C3, made in sweeden. I love them myself
