    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.

    So guys I have been an Abu guy for a long time. Love their reels. I set the baitclickers (line out alarms) while drifting, and trolling. The reels up to this year had stainless steel clickers. They were loud, had good resistance, and work flawlessly. Got a couple new ones last week.The new...
  4. Rods And Custom Rod Building
    I love these reels from catfish to striper. Beautifully crafted. I just bought three combos. The ambassadeur rods that came with them are Med-Heavy, 7'ers. Has anyone had experience with these rods with striper? The rods seem super stiff to me.

  6. The Striper Forum
    I wondered if anyone has an opinion on this reel. I'm thinking of buying a couple to use for cut bait fishing. I wanted something that casts out good, has a loud clicker (in case I'm asleep), and can handle a big striper. Thanks for your help. Rick - team Striper Dogs Pennsylvania Striped Bass...

  9. 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...
  10. Stripers 101 - The Beginners clinic.
    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...
  11. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    FYI. I read on a different post that this reel cannot be retrofitted with ball bearings vs. bushings. (would be a 6000c). However, I sent mine back to the factory and they can and are doing this. (pre 1,000,000 serial# 1967-1969). They do not recommend for use in saltwater however. Beautiful...

  14. Tackle Evaluation & Product review
    Well after some research and insight from others it looks like I am not able to get the Abu Garcia 7001 Big Game with the 5.3 gears. I am still set on having a lefty so it looks like my choices are down to the Abu Garcia 7001 red series with one stainless bearing and 4:1 gears or the Penn 321...

    Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I just purchased my first convetional reel, an abu 7000i cs pro rocket. I have never used a casting conventional before. My question is in regards to the breaking system. There are two knobs opposite each other, on the sides of the reel. Do i have to turn both of them to get the reel set to...

    :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...
