I have been using the Abu Garcia Line of reels mainly the 7000 series for many more years than I would like to admit haha. These reels never fail. I use for monster catfish and have several times in the ocean. The are sealed units on the inside so you never have to worry about sand or grit eating away at it. They recommend using like up to 25lb test on them but I use 40lb mono and it cast effortlessly. Very happy with this purchase.
This is one monster spinning reel capable of dragging up some monster grouper from the depths. I also like to use it for wahoo fishing and cat fishing at the local lake to haul in some big catfish. This reel is super smooth and has a very smooth and tough drag system. This reel can not be beat for durability, smoothness, and quality at this price point. Buy one and you will not regret it I have several Penn Spinfisher V series fishing reels and love them all.
I bought a 6/0 size a few weeks ago , 17 lb. mono , love it ! Use it in the gulf of mexico , this reel can take the abuse , grouper , snapper , mackerel , kings ! Fun ,fun,fun ........so i ordered a 3/0 for inshore light line ,6-10 lb. for fishing the flats trout ,reds in my kayak , these are the smoothest reels I have ever used ....
