I just wanted to let anyone know that if you're thinking about getting one of these reels don't. I recently bought two of them b/c I was too stupid to look and see that they weren't 6000's. I was impressed at first by the looks and feel of them. However, after only using them twice and not even catching a fish on them one of the reels took a dump. I guess one of the cheap plastic gears they put in that particular model(which is made in China) broke. I called Abu and they said they'd fix it for free, but I don't think I want it at all. I've caught two fish on the other one and it seems to work fine but I just don't want to take the risk of it failing me at the most inoppurtune moment (when a big fish is on). I am hoping that I can just get them to replace them with 6000's which are a fine reel. Just wanted to give everyone the heads up.
