    I have Abu Garcias and they are, 2-6000, 2-6500 cl, 2-6500 C3 one newer model, 2-7000C3 older model, 1-5600 rocket and 2-6500 Records. I just bought a flathed rod from catfishsafari and I plan on putting a 6500 chrome rocket on it. Its hard to beat an Abu Garcia, but if I bought another brand it would have to be a St. Croix bait caster. I've been looking at them for some time now and they are made in the U.S.

    Currently I'm using an Abu 7000c3 paired with a Berkley E Cat #4. Abu Chrome Rocket 6500. Will be using this reel with a Black and Blue Custom rod.

    Stick with your Abu Garcias. No way you can go wrong with them.
