    Hey I usually use Spinning for cats, but found a great deal on 2 new ABU 6000s. Are these reels god for the big cats too like the 6500 and bigger models?

    Heck yeah~ The Ambassedur's boast smooth drags which are easy to adjust during a fight with a big cat!

    I have caught most of my Flatheads on my 6000... They are great once you know what you are doing with them... I plan to get me a 7000 here in the next few weeks. i buy alot of fishing gear in the winter due to lower prices...lol... but Catfish Connection offers alot of good products and are even cheaper then wal-mart prices.. But i have a 6000 and what you to know that its a great reel...
