    If your looking for line capacity and a clicker I would go with Abu 7000.

    It looks like the Morrum model of Abus. I'd go with the 7000 or 6500 though. It's easier to get upgrade parts and replacement parts for them.

    They are actually Pflueger Trion Rounds with the Browning label. Most BPS and Browning reels(and Gander Mountain Guide Series) are made by Pflueger(actually Silstar which makes the Pinnacle brand also). They seem to be on par with the Trions, but like the other guys, I would get the Abu.

    I THINK IF YOU JUST LOOK AND LISTEN THERE MORE ABUS USED THE ANY OTHER REEL. IF I WAS GOING TO THE 7000 I WOULD USE THE C3 MODLE OR STEP UP A CLASS IF YOUR CHECK BOOK WILL LET YOU , TO A SHIMANO


    DON'T WORRY ABOUT YESTERDAY BECAUSE IT'S COME AND GONE,LIVE TODAY TO IT'S FULLEST AND GIVE GLORY TO HIM

    I would chose a Abu 6000 or 6500C3 over that anyday.

    I'd use it for fishing where I'd be casting all day, like stripers or muskies. Clicker's are weak in them, and the line capacity is a bit low for heavier lb tests. Pflueger makes a lot of the reels for other companies, as does Pinnacle.

    Pflueger isn't owned by Silstar, it's owned by Shakespeare. Pflueger Trion reels are pretty popular with lots of catfish guide in Santee, and Denny Halgren on the Rock River uses them too.

    Pinnacle makes almost all of the Bass Pro reels, and Pinnacle isn't a bad reel at all. I've got a couple of Vision VS30's (older models) that are nice reels and I've had any problems out of them (other than weak clickers). Pinnacles are made by Silstar.

    For the money though, you aren't going to beat the ABU's. They are basically bullet proof. If you're using under 30lb test (mono), the 6000-6500's are all you'll need. Anything over 30lb test (mono) I'd go with the 7000 series. If you're going to fish super braid, the 6500 is all the capacity you need. If it doesn't have one, order a power handle for it (like the 7000 has). Makes a world of difference.
