    An upper end Abu? I see people talk about them but as far as I can tell there all basically the same inside. Unless you put some smooth drags or something in it.

    They have some models with centrifugal or magnetic casting brakes, chrome or steel bodies, higher speed retrieves, non levelwinds, better cosmetics or graphics, etc. Google a place called Hatteras Outfitters to see some examples.

    That said, it still seems like most of the internals are the same as the cheaper reels, and I don't see a big advantage to most catfishermen. They are more for casting competitions, display cases, or people who just want something a little more unique, IMO.
