    Hi guys. I was wondering if anyone knows if these reels have the auto clutch engage feature. Also, does anyone have any personal experience or tips with/for these reels? I'm thinking about getting one for my son for striped bass fishing.
  2. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    Hi all, I was hoping someone has experience with this reel. I picked this reel up a few weeks ago for fluke and seabass fishing off a boat. I have used the reel 3 times and caught about 20 fish, and only 2 keeper sea bass. So the reel has not been put to heavy use at all. I notice that when I...

    Another member from this site recommended this reel to me for surf and pier fishing. Does anyone know what would be a good rod length for this reel..(I'd like to keep it around 8-9 ft) and what pound braid can it handle? I'd like to use this setup for chunking macs and jigging. Any advice would...

    I surf fish in NJ and NYC and I got a shimano baitrunner 6500. I was wondering wat rod would be a good match. My budget is 90-150. I was thinkin a Star Rod Stellar or a SC Triumph. Any ideas?

    I've used this reel once since buying it last year. It is in excellent condition, spooled with 20# mono(Ande clear, I think?). I don't find myself floating bait much and it's too heavy to plug with. So off it goes! $60.00, a good deal IMHO!

    I am in need of two 6500 c3's but have more needs than money so i must buy used and cheap. I fish freshwater exclusively and don't mind if they are experienced as long as they work. Thanks
  7. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    :smile:I needed a casting reel. I've had Blue Yonder's, and they're fine. I've had the green ct's with the mags. I didn't like 'em. I've built my own Abu's, but they're the newer style. And I have a ton of them. So, I was at a stuck point. What was I gonna do? I was thinking other than Abu, and...

    I was wandering if any one could walk me through the steps of maintaining, my 6500. I do all my spinning gear, but this is my first conventional and don't want to screw anything up. Thanks in advance.
  11. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I picked up a 6500 C3 last weekend. Loaded it up with 20# fireline (with a little mono backing of course) and tossed a 1oz bank sinker a few times this morning to try it out. First impression, not a bad little casting reel. The bait clicker seems a little flimsy, but other than that it feels...

    Came home from Montauk Tuesday to find a set in the mailbox (Thanks Bob Hulme from Abu! ) Very, very nice and very similar to the Penn HT100's. Switched out the super smoothies that I had in there and gave the new system a test run on a few zillion blues today. icon_thumleft.gif...
