    I've just been dealing with the plain old 5000 and the 6000. I like the 6000 due to the bait clicker and the little bit of extra spool capacity.

    From what I can tell, the 6500 is a 6000 with bearings and the 5500 also. I think its the C3 model, whick are greyish. Then the CL or Rocket is the high speed reels, which is orange.

    What is the BCX ones? Are they the same old red ones, but made in China and with a thumb release?
