    Does anyone else own one of these reels. I do, The ABS or Anti Backlash System works but reduces the distance on the cast about 30%:eek:oooh:.
    However it also greatly reduces the backlash problems for a new caster:big_smile: .

    With the ABS off it cast just like a normal 5600. A little power house IMO:cool2: .

    The I love the middle thumb release also A well designed reel in this man's opion.

    Retail Price 99.99

    Haven't seen one of those, though I do love my 5600C4. It has the middle thumb bar, but has the wire style levelwind guide. Also has a clicker, paid $63 for it.
