Rated 5 out of 5 by WickedStripers from This thing is SICK I live south of Boston and we take our striper and blue fishing seriously. I bought the 7000i C3 about a year ago. I matched it with a Tiger Lite 7ft rod and it works awesome. I can cast as far and as controlled as I want. It handles 40+ Lb stripers no problem. Also big 20 lb blue fish as well. It works so well one of my fishing buddies went out and bought one and another is going to grab one as well. All I can say is this reel is nasty. I have owned way more expensive reels that have disappointed me but this reel will not let you down. I have 40lb fireline, 17lb diameter and it's really smooth. Great reel Abu thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by Turnip from Diminishing quality I have bought a number of these reels for cat fishing trophy cats. The last three I bought have been terrible all make a clicking noise when casting like the bait clicker is half on thought I was buying reels that last for years like the first reels I bought some 10yrs ago. Quality has gone down as demand has grown. This was my go to reel for cat fishing as I regularly catch 40+ Blues I am so sad that these reels have went this far down hill it’s unbelievable. I think that I will be exploring other brands this is a sad day. I own 9 of the 7000 series in various models and there is a big difference in my older reels and the most recent 3 I purchased recently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavier but Happy from Definitely a Keeper I received my first Abu Garcia reel as a gift from my girlfriend over ten years ago and even after all this time I still have both. Abu Garcia keep making great products and Honey (now my wife) keep buying great gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joey44 from I've been using Abu Garcia for a very long time. Me and my brother when night fishing and left our poles out for the night, the next day I couldn't find my pole. After 3 weeks I went swimming near the same spot we fish. step on something that felt like metal, so I went under water and picked it up and what do you know it was my abu garcia reel that went missing for 3 weeks. So we went back fishing and I never did maintenance on it after being under water for 3 weeks, it felt like it was a new reel no rust no sign of wear n tear at all. I recommend ABU GARCIA brand to all my friends and fishing families to this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlieT from Nothing better than an Abu Greeting to all, Hate to tell my age, but I've been using Abu reels across the entire planet since the early 1970s... From perch to wahoo, these reels can do it all. Just have to say, I really love the 7000s. Pair one with a good rod and it will catch anything it was designed for. I routinely catch 50-75 lb amber jacks, grouper, snapper fishing deep offshore and still can use it for surf fishing...makes 80-100 yd casts with light weights with no overruns. Get yourself a couple of these and 99.995% of your reel issues are solved. They REALLY ARE THAT GOOD!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DTro from My Favorite Catfish Reel I fish for big nasty mean Flathead Catifsh all summer long and the 7000 is my favorite reel bar none. From the dependable drag to quality components, I know that when trophy bites I'll be ready for it. Keep this reel clean and it will last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perinski from Incredibly functional reel I have been using a set of these reels for years now with zero issues. I use them primarily for bass fishing, but they have seen some light saltwater fishing usage as well. I always maintain them by disassembling them and lubing them anytime they are submerged and at least once a season. They hold ample amount of heavy braid and have a solid, consistent drag. They are easy to cast and almost indestructible. I can not recommend any reel any higher than these, and I have been an avid fisherman for over 30 years seeing the water over 100x per year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OKCRhoads from A awesome all around reel! I purchased a new 7000C3 and love it! This isn't my first, nor will it be my last. I have been using a set of these reels for some years now with zero issues that had been my fathers and had been passed down. I have used them primarily for bass and striper fishing, but they have on occasion seen some light saltwater fishing as well. It's a good all around reel! They are reliable, great working, smooth operating reels. They also hold ample amount of mono line and heavy braided line and have a solid drag. You can not beat them!
