    i like the Abu 6000 reels and the price is reasonable for them........... right around $65

    i will support abu garcia until the day i die :)
  4. Abus are probably the easiest casting of all the reels used for catfish...Also if you are fishing for channel cats a large round bass reel is great for channelcats, and they arent TOO hard to learn on...

    abu's are great, you dont want to take the route i did. I learned to cast a penn 209 when i was younger, once you learn to cast a 209 you can cast anything
  6. abu all the way! 6000 to 7000 series. You can buy the less expensive ones all day long, but put the extra 30 to 40 dollars more in, and you will have a reel that will do any job you want, and last you a lifetime!!!!!
