    Guys I just purchased one of these reels, and I can say it compares with the abu 7000.But for only 59 bucks..I have it matched with a new quantum bigcat heavy action rod..It cast very good and holds 300yds of 30-lb test mono.It is the Quantum Blue runner

    Have you seen some of the new Quantum saltwater series ? They sure look nice :p Tiga also makes a reel that looks like a Calcutta for alot less $$. I'm pretty well set up for now. Don't really need any new tackle, but I do want to outfit the boat more. I'm going to cut some hatches into the front platform to sink a battery & also make an anchor & rope storage box.
  4. Very nice reel. Can I ask where you got it? Some how I haven't seen that model yet. I saw the salt water series, but they're a bit more than I wanted to spend since the Big Irons have worked well for me. The Blue Runner looks a lot like the Penn 209. How's the clicker?

    The clicker on the Blue runner is very loud.I got mine at a local tackle store..Cabelas has them in the salwater section.
  6. Thanks Jack. Does anybody know if Quantum discontinued the Big Iron series? I can't seem to find mention of them anywhere. If so, I may give one of those a shot.

    I'm thinking the big iron has become the new series I posted above. Cabelas has them. If I recall, I think they have the same features, with a new color & handle :eek:
  8. I think your right, they seem very similar. I should have stocked up last year when BPS had them for $50. :rolleyes:
