    Hey...Jesse! Only one way to find out. Take it fishing......I hear a lot of great comments on them. Ambassadeur is what other reels wanna be

    My son has a 7000c3 and loves it. I've never had more than the 6000's and 6500's

    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

    I dont think you can go wrong if it has the name Abu Garcia on it. They are durable and cast a mile. Should last forever with proper care. rspd507
