    A while back i broke my cheapo walmart fishing rod and i had an old cheapo telescoping rod i decided to use as a replacment for it there was an older fishing reel i found in a box. I assume it was my fathers at some point but It wouldve had to be near 20 years old for that. I never really paid attention to it just put it on that dinky rod and went on about my business. I was using this rod to catch some bluegill the other day and noticed the reel was an abu garcia. I had never heard of abu garcia untill i started getting on here. Would this reel be worth buying an ok rod for and respooling it.

    I think it would be worth it. I bought my first Abu in 1990 and still use it today.

    Unless the insides are falling out of the reel, an Abu Garcia is worth a decent quality rod!:wink:
