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.
I got this for my husband for his shore fishing. He loves it. I ordered it a size bigger and it was perfect, gave him plenty of room to wear sweats or jeans under it.
I am a woman and absolutely could find waders for women ANYWHERE, so I decided to purchase these in size small. They are a little big in that the front bib area come sup to my neck & the shoulder straps are very loose. I am going to fix the straps myself----shorten them a bit. They are one piece, like footie pajamas!! I'm happy about that, as last year I got some weird "swimmer's itch" from a parasite in the water. Hope to use these in colder water when I go clamming!
