    Anyone have any opinions/experience with these reels?

    Especially the 1600, 3600, & 5600 models.

    TIA

    I used to love them. Just my opinon but I think anything less than the 5600 are too small for catfishing though. They make a great 6600WS w/ clicker & a Power Handle for cats though. They also make a reg 6000 that's good too. I remember the store that I worked for years ago sold them and they were close to $100. I want to say $70 & up depending on the model. There was a step up called the Pro Max, which were silver.

    These older ones are 10 times the reels that the new Black Max and Pro Max reels are.

    I have a 6500 that I put a power handle on and it works great for Cats. I would definately buy another if I had the chance. It will cast a country mile, smooth as silk.

    I had a 3600. It was a good little reel. Not good for big fish though. Great for sand bass and lmb.
