I think i will see a lot of abumaster 6500.
I use Tsunami 6'6" boat rods with Shimano 6500b Baitrunner reels spooled with 120lb braid. Nothing gets away.
I like the 7000c3 ABU matched with a Quantum Big Cat m/h rod.
I have alot of different setups, spinning and baitcasters. My favorite reels are the abu garcias 6500 and 7000. Favorite rods are catmax (bass pro) and catfish safari flathead.
I have over 20 r&r's......I guess my favorites are Penn rod & reels and okuma's.:big_smile:
I like my Abu 6600 C4 s and my catmaxx 9 fters.
For rods, I like Ugly Stik, Cat Claw, Whuppin' Stiks, and my Tica and American Rodsmith surf rods. I have a Shimano Baitrunner on an Ugly Stik that always goes with me, and Penn Squidders and Jigmasters on my casting rods....
I use Abu 6000, 6500C3, and Cardinal C106 spinning reel, with Berkley Big Game and Zebco Rhino Rods.
I currently fish with an Okuma Solaris Surf 12' casting rod with an Abu 6500cs Pro Rocket.
The second rod is an Ocean Master Cape Point 12' casting rod with an Abu
7000iCS Pro Rocket.
The Okuma has a 3-8oz lure weight rating.
The Ocean Master has a 6-12oz lure weight rating.
Both reels are spooled with 65# power pro.
All of my fishing is done from the banks of the Mississippi. Good luck.

Hey, I like about anything that's catchin fish, but, My "serious stuff" is an old Daiwa 7000 spinning reel on an Inshore rod, use 30 lb mono on that one,
another favorite is a Cabelas trolling DMG 45, baitcaster, on an Eagle Claw heavy rod, with 50 lb mono.. it's like having a wrecker winch to haul in flats,,
I also use a Abu Garcia 6500, Daiwa Millionaire 300,, I usually put on heavier line that recommended, braided or mono, and tie on a big hook with a big ol bait and let fly,,
Funny thing is my Girlfriend has landed almost as large fish as I have on a Zebco 202, and the rod it came on!!!:tounge_out:
I own about 15 r&r setups many different sizes all the rods are of many names only 2 rods are of the same name as for the reels all 15 are Penn's. Only 2 of them are the same model.
Abu Garcia 6500. Do they make others? :wink:
