    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...
  3. 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.

    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...

    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 picked up a Abu Garcia 6600CB from Cabela's and finally got to try it today. This is my first baitcasting type reel and I wasn't sure how things were going to work out. I have it loaded up with 30 pound Stealth. This thing is great. I was afraid of the birdsnest occurring so I was taking...

    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...
