I've recently restocked my catfishing boat with the Shakespeare skp2000's and I really like them. They're an abu knock-off or really very similar to a red abu 6500c model with about the same spool capacity. They have better reel handles than the abu 6500c .. they're bigger handles and the knobs won't pull off like some of the 6500c3 models will. they have 4 centrifugal brake blocks in them for great cast control. the clickers are pretty much useless though. They have one ballbearing which is on the crank shaft and bushings on the spool spindals. overall they're nice reels for $29.99 at walmart. the skp3000's aren't nearly as good ... their levelwinds tend to spool the line up too much on one side and I haven't figured out a cure for that yet.
