    I have an ABU GARCIA but not that model, have had it for about 15 yrs and only needed to tune it once. Ive caught everything from hand size blue guill to 5' black tip reef sharks on it. its awsome

    I have never seen the two speed model. I have 4 Abassadeur 6501-C that I installed the Abu Garcia Power Handles on and I love them and have never had a problem. They are great reels.

    Good lookin rod there. You can't go wrong with a abu IMHO. All you need now is a medium heavy 7 1/2 footer to mount it on and you will have a nice set up there.
