    Has anyone ever used the Cabela's Prestige or the Cabela's Salt Striker reels?

    They have them on sale for 49.95 on their website. I was just wondering how good these reels are and how they compare in size and performance to Abu Garcia 7000.

    I guess no one has used either of these.

    I have a salt striker, Size wise it is about the same as my 6500. It is built pretty solid. The only problem is the piece inside of it that engages the reel automatically when you turn the handle has got bent on mine. All in all it is a nice reel.
