    The answer your going to get is pretty much any Abu Garcia. The 6500/7000/9000 are all very popular among the BOC

    Abu 6500 Pro Rocket if you prefer reels with level wind.

    Abu Blue Yonder if you prefer reels with no level wind.

    I understand the Abu Mags are also nice casting reels.

    ABU Blue Yonder is a cat daddy long caster along with alot of other Abus.
    But there are some others as well....Avet,Daiwa slosh reels,Penn gs,Penn mag 525,etc.I prefer the Abu because of the carbon drags and the ceramic bearings you can load em with.
