I got my shipment on Friday from catfish connection. I got 3 reels- all abus- heres my review of them -blue cat trophy special- spooled it up with 25# big game and it was totally awesome. I put it on a new medium action big cat rod. I caught several 5 lb cats with it already and it is just an awesome combo. The handle on the reel is one of the ergomically rfiendly ones that is rounded- very nice!!!!!!!might be my new favorite! 60hc record baitcast- spooled it with 25# as well and pared it up with the meduim action big cat. nice combo as well- casts a mile and reel is extremely smooth. If I was going to be csting a lot this would be my favorite combo. 7000I Syncro Baitcast- all i can say is BULLDOG TUFF!!!! I have not even put line on this yet but have mounted it up on my heavy action big cat. I am not too sureI should not mount it on the bumper of my truck!!!!! This reel has a huge handle on it that you simply turn backwards if a big flattie decides to make a run, releasing most of the drag. But as he runs and tires, you simply turn the handle forward for full drag and start reeling in again. I think this would be awesome for circle hooks as it would provide more tension than just the clicker for hooksets, but not load the rod so much you cant remove it from the rod holder. I plan to spool it up with some 50# plus line and head for the KAW! I had a nice bill of about $400 for these three but the sync reel was on sale and new i get 15 apiece back in rebates from abu, so what the heck!!!! nice reels that will last forever!!!!
