    SGT, I had two of them and still have one ( long Story lol). You will love that reel. It throws great and the faster retreive will save you some terminal tackle in the stumps. I have it mounted on an 8 ft. rod and use it in tournaments. Caught a 21.92 lb. blue on it yesterday. On the bigger fish you will need to use the rod more on the retreive, even though it's faster it doesn't have the cranking power of the lower geared reels.

    Man...the only thing i get from the wife is 9 kinds of @#@#@ :eek:oooh::smile2:. I know the story on Johnny's "missing reel" too. :tounge_out: There good reels. I got a 6600 c3 and it is fine. I recently went back to my Big ABU's and 10ft rods when i made the "switch" to circle hooks. not sure why.....but it works really well and i got some serious cranking and casting abilities with the bigger set up. Enjoy that new reel for a lifetime......:big_smile:

    there is no way i am sending her back to vegas by herself again. i love her to death, but i havent even been to the BPS there and she went and took all of these cool pictures. the greeneyed monster has gotten ahold of me. anyway i was thinking about putting it on a nice 9 ft rod. any good rods out there that you can suggest that arent going to cost me an arm and a leg. i need to order 3 of them since i have 2 new 550C3's coming in the mail that i got on Ebay.

    Joey, I'll give you a tip. If you plan on going to BPS here in Vegas, go online first and check out what ya want and print out the page. I've got some great deals that way.

    I don't want to start anything, but.....have you ever seen those Vegas commercials? The ones that say," what happens here stays here,"?

    But I guess you are ok with just a reel. Now if she comes back with a complete rig and tackle box, worry! LOL
