    I just noticed that the Ambassadeur 7000c3 isn't sold anymore and if you want one close to it that their prices have went up to 149.00. I love these reels and have 2 at the moment and for 99.00 I was only able to buy them maybe 1 a year now that they've went up almost 50% looks like I'll have to settle for a 6500c3 or go with the Penn 310's or 320's, it's just that I liked the way they threw, they seemed to be alot easier to handle than the PENNS. Of coarse there is the EBAY and that may be my option, but I think it's kind of sad that they can't still have the semi affordable 7000c3 for those of us who haven't got the extra 49.00 all the time to get one. I love my 6500s also but for a little extra I could always get a little better reel.

    My mistake, you can get them for 129.00, but that is still 30.00 more than they were and 10.00 higher than you can get something compatable at Cabelas.

    It depends on what ya catch weather u need a 7000 or not. The 6500 would be a good choice.

    hey catfish connection has the new red 7000i for $86.00 Have you had or used a gt penn? their pretty good, nothing compaired to the 309. the 220gto i bought casts like my 6500c3 but further. its only $59-69. Dont fear buying the penn, i traded my 309 for a 6000 a couple years ago but youd play heck getting me to trade my gto for a 6500 or 7000 now! not that id trade my abu's either I think im finaly cured the tackle buying bug......for now:wink:

    Ya, got 2 PENN 320 GT2'S and 2 7000c3's, Penn 500M jigmaster, and 2 6500c3's along with other reels. I have probably enough reels for a life time for myself, but during this time of year I like to spend money and get more equipment and seeing reels go up that I want to buy puts a damper on the buying. I figure I'll wait for a while and then buy some more, I think I probably have enough for this year + we're moving to PA. this June so money will be a little tight.

    Catfish Connection was still selling them but I do not know if they sold out yet. This year Abu is selling the 700c3i. You can also still get them on ebay.
