i haven't posted in a few months... been in the woods and away from the water. :wink: anyways, i went to bass pro today and picked up 2 7ft M-H action ugly stick rods and the abu garcia 6600 bcx. my total was 194.00 for both the rods and reels. so $97.00 a piece, cant beat it in my book. i used the 5600bcx last summer and caught any an every fish they came up against. as well as my PB carp of 20.6lbs... you can find these reels at walmart and bass pro. for $59.00 . Reels are very similar, only diff between the 5600 and 6600 is the bait clicker.they use 5:3:1 gears,and have 4 ball bearings,6600 is a little more beefy. and they have the Anti-Distortion Spool that won't torque under a heavy load. so far so good, reel casts smooth and ive had no problems with it. heres a few pictures, thought id share with you guys from left to right is the bcx 6600.... middle picute is the 5600bcx on the left compared to my new 6600bcx on the right. as well as the far right picture of the 2 new rods. thanks again guys and i really recomend these reels for the money!
