Alex:Thanks for the replies everybody. I was looking at getting an Abu Garcia 7000 cs pro rocket. Anyone ever use that reel?
For that money I would go with a MC 600 from Renegade, Paul is great to deal with. I don't own one but if you know anything about reel components this thing is jammed pack. It is geared towards the distance casting that bank guys must have. Don't own one yet, but will be in the near future and will be making it my bank casting rig teamed up with a surf rod. Pretty nice warranty on them also.I wish I had the money for a Calcutta but I was wanting to stay under 150 or so, 200 max.
