Pros: Casts like a bullet. Smooth drag, mods available
Cons: Doesnt handle heavy sinkers, 7000 size Abu is better
The word Rocket in the name of this reel is a true understatement. This is my best casting reel in my arsenal. I added some distance to my casts. The reel handles mono very well, I prefer 17lb spooled tight on the spool. When fighting fish the reels drag is very smooth and easily adjusted by a star drag. The gear ratio is 5:3:1 which can make it a decent bottom fishing reel as well. Overall one of the best reels Abu Garcia ever made. Plus its pretty!!
