With the fishing season approaching fast i made an order today for a new Abu Garcia 6500 C3 reel. The expected delivery date is in 7-10 days which is way too long. :crazy: I've been talking to my buddy Jack and he assured me that i would love this reel. It's great having a fishing buddy that you can rely on not to steer you in the wrong direction! Anyways i got this reel for 79.99 shipped which i think is a great deal. Can't wait to get it and do some fishing!!!!
