    Can anyone recommend a good baitcasting reel that would fit on a standard freshwater reel seat? What I have on hand is too long and too wide. Thanks.

    Rich,
    All my rods are M/H freshwater rods. I have two Garcia 6000's and two Penn reels. One is the 220 GTO and the other a 230 GTO. Both fit my rods fine and are great reels. However, If I were you and I was leaning toward a Garcia, Id go with a larger reel than the 6000. rspd507

    A Abu 6000 or 6500C3 makes a good small footprint reel.

    I've just bought an ambassadeur five reel from eBay. The fun part now is trying to see if anyone here has used one of these.
