    I have acquired a 6500C3 high speed-ultra cast that holds 400 yards of 12lb test versus the 245/14 yards of my other 6500's. Even with the 12 vs 14#, that's quite a difference in capacity. I don't see any obvious difference in size of the spools. The Abu website has no info on any such reel and I can find no info anywhere on the the web.If anyone knows anything about such a reel then any info will be appreciated.Thanks.

    I've never seen a 6500 that would hold that amount of line. Can you post a picture? Check the width of the spool. A model that's identical except for a slightly wider spool would hold quite a bit more line.
