    I know most people that have them speak highly of them. There is one guy, I can't remember his name, but he is always singing their praises. He did make one comment about the clicker being weak. I have a couple of Abu 7000's and 9000's and I like the clicker on these reels as they seem to be plenty stong enough for fishing with large live sunfish. Can someone make a comparison to the Abu clickers and Contender clickers? I may try one of the Contenders if the clicker is adequate for live bait fishing in freespool. One thing the Abu's have that the Contenders do not is the adjustable spool brake on the left side. This can be used to tighten down the spool when those big Sunfish are tugging away. I'm just wondering if the clicker on the Contender will be able to hold the gills in place without the adjustabe spool brake?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to highjack your thread.:wink:
