    Matt that is a nice looking reel. That should last you many years. I like the Abus.. I use 7000c3. I bet you can't wait to try it out.

    One thing about it... I bet it will backlash. Thats controlled more by the man than by the reel. It is like driving a car - the man makes it go, he makes it stop, he makes it turn... car only does what it was designed to do.

    I've got one like that. The anti-backlash does work, but you lose some distance.

    I've got several different ABUs in various sizes.......ALL will backlash....

    OK, the backlash system does help, but it will take some of the distance out of the cast if that is important.... Over the years I've learned only one thing makes any reel backlash free, "your thumb" and sometimes I forget to use it......You've got a good reel don't let me detract from it........"use it like you own it." Catch a biggun......:big_smile:

    Since it is an ABU I am sure you will enjoy it for some time to come. I have 3-- 5500 c's and think of getting a 6500 or a penn 320.
