    Is this a good reel for Flatheads?? Tell something about it? I have been looking for 1 but couldn't decide which 1 to get. I got it Friday from BPS, I couldn't pass up the price $50 the last one they had for the 2006 model!! It was a display reel with no box, it is gold & black.

    The plan for this reel will be fishing dams & rivers.

    Paul, I cant tell you wether or not it is good but I got one also (well I will when they come in). Our own loanwizard was able to obtain a bunch for 90 bucks so Im just waiting for them to come in. I plan on putting mine on a 11ft rod. I hope it is a good reel, but then again its an Abu so it cant be that bad.

    It's the same quality as all the other 7000s, it just has the narrower spool wich means it doesn't have the line capacity as the standart 7000. It's the same capacity about as the 6000 or 6500 reels, just bigger reel.

    If its a 7000, it should be a good reel.
