Other then the larger handle & color, what other differences are there?

I notice on catfish connection they mentioned Blu Cat reel having high performance brass gears while the c3 has 5:3:1 high performance gears. Is there a difference ?

They are exactly the same reel. Unless you want the nifty graphics of the Blue Cat reel, I'd just get on ebay and find a good deal on a couple of regular 6500's and then buy the power handles for $17 each. I've seen the 6500's sell for $40-$50, add in a couple of handles, and the possibility is that you can get two good reels for the cost of one Blue Cat or less.

I just replaced all 5 of my 6500C3's with the new Blue Cat reels. Not because there was any difference, but just because they go better with my Catfish Safari Lake Rods... :roll_eyes:

Not sure what I'm going to do with the old 6500C3's yet, they may end up on eBay soon... :confused2:

If catfish safari doesnt have them , I know catfish connection still has the black cats in stock.

Dont forget that abu has a mail in rebate on reels right now. I think on the bluecat it is 15 dallors. That brings the price of a new reel down to the price of a used reel from someone else.

I wrote John at catfish Connection about the rebates on the Blue Cat reels. he said:

"The blue cat is not a C3 or C4, so the $15.00 rebate do not apply. However, the $10.00 rebates do apply. We will send you copies of the rebate. Please make sure that you make a note of it on your order."
