    Abu 650x C3 reels are the cat(fish)'s meow!

    Abu C3 reels have it all going for them - power, durability, castability, ease of maintenance and super overall price point quality/value. The level wind mechanism is easy to remove if added casting distance is required, as well as adding a mono-mag for even better casting control than the supplied spool brakes.

    Maintainable Workhorses

    My Arsenals maybe dated, C3's C4's Morrum's and Records but why change what's working! Parts to repair, upgrade are readily available and it is actually fun to strip these down and do the preventative care

    Awesome reels.

    Lake Tawakoni in Texas is know for its monster blue catfish. I have been using the 6500C3 and the 7000C3 reels for 25 years and have caught hundreds of blue catfish over 20 pounds on them. The biggest being 70 pounds. They have never let me down and perform amazing. They also perform well in salt water and can handle the big bull reds. They are very versatile and easy to clean and maintain. I will never use another type of reel. Thank you ABU Garcia for a great product.
