    I've been told by a few members on here that they're one of the best Abu Garcia reels you can buy, not to mention the furthest casting. He definitely made a great buy.

    Too these masterpeices today;

    Since I've fished ABU's all my life. I must say (Besides the Morrum Line-up)these 2- RCN60 HC, Record's I bought have got to be the best reel they have ever produced.

    Long casting, smooth drag, cranking power is awesome and on the retreive guick and silky smooth:wink: Fits into your hand well and comfortable to fish with all day.They are the ones I grab first when I head to the lake..

    SUPER REEL IMHO:cool2:

    Oh I almost forgot;Your DAD is going to love his new reels..:big_smile:

    Tony Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. You have made an excellent investment in those reels. They will continue to bring great dividends for many years. You will also love the performance.
