    Hi Dallas,
    I've got some of the older Brute 6600 Thumbar reels, and I like using them.. I converted mine to the instant anti-reverse bearing, and they do a great job..Should be a great addition to your reels

    They look like they'd be Nice.. Another member asked me about those, and , I went to the site, and, seems like good stuff..
    For the features, and price,, wish I could buy a bunch of them :big_smile:
    Some folks don't like the thumbar spool release, but, I like using the ones on the Brutes I have,, very ergonomic for me!!
