Rated 1 out of 5 by steven from great reel for the first year This reel worked great for me for the first year or so. I fished in saltwater and fresh. Always cleaned it and lubed it when saltwater came in contact. First thing that happed my worm gear stripped out and then the internal parts gave out. Could not use the clicker, then the release stopped working without fiddling with it for a few moments. Then the retrieve stopped working. The reel became completely useless. The same thing happed with my kalex about a year after purchasing it. I recently purchased a record. This is my last straw with Abu Garcia. Let's hope it last much longer than one year. I now understand why there is only a one year warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dave the Guide from versatile for heavy fresh water or a "25 pound" saltwater reel My wonderful daughter bought this reel for fathers day some years ago and I have fished it from Alaska to Costa Rica. The 7000(C) is a beautiful dark royal blue enameled large handled bait caster that casts like a dream for plugging as well as a heavy jigging reel for grouper and other delicious bottom dwellers. I have caught salmon to 38 pounds; dog tooth snapper to 55 pounds and tarpon over 100 pounds with this reel. The drag is excellent. This reel has held up well over the years and in fact still looks almost like new. I have no experience with the "Big Game" edition but prefer this edition and am enjoying my daughters gift to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PlanoKeith from Strong Reel I have one of these and it is about 45 years old . With the dual side cast control and a clicker on it for live bait fishing. Even at 45 years old this reel works like it is brand new. . It has a wide spool so you can put some heavy pound line on it and also have enough line on the spool not to loose it all when you hook a BRUSER of a catfish that won't give up. I have had up to 125 yards of line spooled off from a 45 pound catfish and the reel was able to handle it with no problem. If you are looking for a reel that will actually handle BIG game fish this is the one to get. I will buy another when this one wears out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HolidayFisherman from Casts like a dream I bought the 7000i a year ago. A great product and well built. I like the aluminium casing which is makes is durable. It throws a bait exceptionally well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigLentz from Exceeded my expectations I purchased this reel for flathead fishing in Iowa, and once a year the family and I go fishing off the shore of Siesta Key Beach in Florida. The reel casts very nice off the shore. The first big catch was a 100lbs black tip shark. It took no time at all to reel in with the nice drag system of this reel, I had approx. 280yrds of 80lbs powerpro. I was afraid of the shark possibly spooling me, so I set the drag and brought him in quick! I am now thinking of a 10000i just for more line capacity. Very pleased with this reel, amazing Fresh/Salt water reel!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ethan from Excellent Performance!!! I purchased my 7000i from Ronnie & Hellen's Muskie Shop less than a year ago. My reel is mounted on a 12' Ugly Stick Bigwater heavy action rod, this combination is by far the best investment I have ever bought. The spool is only filled with 65 lb Cortland Master braid, just for those smaller fish. The reel has out performed certain "Higher Quality" reels my dad has bought over the years. I have never been happier with my reel or rod combination except when I opened the package on my doorstep. I have caught everything from small bluegill to a couple 75 lb flatheads on the Ohio River. My 7000i is an absolute attention getter and people always ask me why I need something that big, I always smile and reply, "Because Warn winches are overkill."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from price and style is what caught my eye! this was a great gift for my uncle. he uses this reel on his boat and also on the pier. i also got a chance to give it a go and see if it was worth the money... which it is! so far ive brought in a 10lb shovelnose off the pier and was able to just use the reel to crank it in b/c i was afraid the pole might give way. very solid!!! me and my uncle are convinced this was a great and he is still in disbelief that it was under $150. :D
