I recently purchased an ABU 6500 C3. Been wanting to get it on a rod and start doing some practice casting. My wife, bless her, got tired of me complaining about not having rod enough to handle the reel. So she went to Cabelas and bought me one. The only thing is, she got an Ugly Stik, which is good, but it is a 7' medium light. I don't want to hurt her feelings by letting her know that I took it back - but I wanted a 7' 6" medium heavy. Question is - should I be sneaky and take it back????? I don't think that the medium light will hold up. What do you all think? Thanks in advance to all who respond to this post.
