    This is my favorite abu reel in the 6500 size, they come in different sizes but most castfisherman would want the rcn 60 high capacity spool..Thes reels just feel tough, smooth and quality all over them, they can also out cast my 6500c3 reels, and are much smoother on the retrive, thanks to the bearing supported level wind.

    They're nice that's for sure. I was gonna buy one but couldn't couldn't swallow that price tag , especially for a 6500 series. I have a new C3 that I'll build on instead , maybe one day I'll get one....they sure are nice.

    I wish you great success with it...get er done !

    Take an old 6000c or 6500c add the bearing levelwind and idler pulley and you have pretty much the same thing.
