hey Jesse! you made a smart purchase!! the abu 7000c3 is an awesome reel.
Being the personal owner of 1, I can tell you this reel should serve you well. Serious catfishing reel. bar none!!:big_smile::big_smile:
i havnt own a 7000 but i do own a 5500, 6000 and a 10,000. and i love them and if it works as good as them. you will love it. Now for the rest of the fisherman out there that is reading this. i know the 10,000 is over kill but i fish jig below hydro dams and when pulling out big flat heads. its wonderfull
