Not entirely sure how to word this but i'll begin by saying i bass fished for years with Abu 5000 reels and never had issues other than an occasional pawl being replaced. I've little experience with bigger one's with the exception of using a friends last year at the Mo. gathering. 8oz. weight and casted like a dream. Now for the question, i'm wanting to buy a few reels this spring and want input on Abu, peen or other desent priced baitcasters. I think i want something with a level wind, but not sure if i need a clicker or not. Most of my fishing will be in lakes with occasional trips to rivers.Help me out guys, i'm wanting some tackle big enuff to get er done if the chance happens.
