    I haven't seen much about these reels. Does anyone have one? What do you think? How well can you cast with them? Looks like these could be the bees knees!

    I use the Plueger trion, round, baitcaster, model 66 it's the only trion model with a baitclicker. it is the almost perfect reel. It one of the best casting reels in the world. It is a great reel for large bass, stripers, samon, catfish and yes big catfish. I have over 20 rod,reel setups and since finding the Pflueger I have purchesed 3 more, I have all four matched with challenger rods, one piece 7 foot 9 eyes.

    Oh, trust me, I've got some Pfluegers, just looking for model specific info. I was thinking about the Trion 66, but I want something a little more substantial. I'd compare the Trion to the Abu 6500, and I want something more along the lines of the Abu 7000.
