I got an old crappy quantum profile baitcaster almost 7 years ago and it only lasted about a dozen trips channel catfishing. Well I had it put up in the box for spare parts and dug it out recently and figured what the heck, I put it in a bag and took it to Walmart with reciept and told them the deal, No questions asked they told me to go get another reel and I went to sporting goods. I was gonna get the lightning rod/6000 Garcia combo but I spotted the AB 7000 which was marked down to 79 from the usual 100 and grabbed one, paid the difference and was out the door. now THAT is great customer service if I have ever saw it. And not to mention at this walmart all the Abu Garcias where marked down from 10-25 bucks so you guys might wanna check it out.
