    Patrick the 9000 series is a great reel and you will be glad you purchased it.Excellent line capacity and drag system. What type of rod are you going to match with it? If you havent chosen one yet I would suggest a Quantum Big Cat series.

    The abu 9000 is a super real your are going to like it more each time you use it! At the bait shop at the national gathering between the two lakes, I think the name of the place was Kens it was right next to a restaurant and the place was really Great. Anyway the man had the 8000/9000/10000 on sale for 129.00 plus tax and he said that ABU was discontining them. Now I wish I had bought one! I think I could of snuck it in the House without the little lady catching Me, LOL. She thinks I have too many as it is. Crazy Old Heffer, A man can never Have To Many Rods and Reels Right Guys?

    Some day when I hit the lottery I will be able to afford that kind of rig. I don't think all 4 of my shakespear combos add up to $139. I will probably live to regret buying walmart junk about the time I hook into a 50# blue on an ugly stick or tiger spinning combo. It should be a sweet a$$ reel.

    Man, they had them on sale for $90 around here at Wal-Mart, but I just didn't really have the money to spend on it. They are sweet reels, I have two of the older Black 9000's. They cast awesome.

    i have a Abu big game 7000 that handles the work load and gets the job done just as well. It should serve you good.
