    Howdy Slikk, I have a 6500 and 7000 Pro Rocket. Abu also makes the Pro Rocket in the 4500 and 5500 sizes, but you don't see them offered for sale very often. They are also making the Pro Rocket in the new 7000i series, which is suppose to have the drag upgrades. Rocket is a good name for these reels, mine will throw a lonnnggg way. Doug

    I believe all the rockets had the upgraded drag washers. I've got the 7000 CS PRO Rocket, and the drag pulls smooth like the new ones.

    I agree also that the Pro Rockets are the best casting out of the box reel they make!!!!!!!!!

    I bought 2 of the Abu Garcia 7000 ICS Pro Rockets earlier this spring and put them on Surge Trophy Catfish rods. I really like them! They cast great and the drag is super smooth!

    I've got a 6600CS Pro Rocket and I love it, it casts like a dream and the drag is great. I wish I would have got another one of them instead of a lever drag. Oh well
