  1. As you folks can probably tell I am new to the salt water baitcasters. I have an Abu 7000 that is in excellent shape. The only thing I don’t like about it is the level wind. Will it hurt anything if i disengage or remove the level wind? Thanks in advance. Mike.
  2. Quite a range I know. The Penns need to be 300’s or 400’s. New or in very good shape used. Right hand retrieve. Thanks Mike
  3. Interested. Please post a couple pics. Thanks Mike
  4. I would love to find a couple of those!
  5. The other one came this afternoon. Perfect as always. Thank you Lou. Mike
  6. The other one showed up today. Perfect as always. Thanks Mike
  7. I’ll take 2 Lou. Get pp tomorrow morning.
  8. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Very helpful. Mike
  9. Yikes!! A tad scary but it can’t be too hard. I’ll let you know. Thanks Mike
  10. We are going to find out. I’ll just take pics as I go. Thanks.
  11. Only tossing 3-5 tops. After 5 I lose distance. Bad shoulder. Still recovering from surgery.
  12. I think that is probably what I am going to do. That reel came to me from a fishing buddy and I will just use it like it is.
  13. To everyone else, thanks for helping me out. That is what SOL is all about. Going to play around with it and see what I can learn. Tight Lines Mike
  14. Thanks. That is exactly what I needed to know. Mike
  15. I just thought that I might get a little more distance w/o the level wind. That’s all. Mike
  16. This one gives me less distance. But I really like it. I thought losing the LW would get me a little more.
  17. This one is awesome.
  18. I don’t know a whole lot about it. Yet. Guess it’s time to do some research. Thanks!
  19. His darters rock. My favorite is his 1 1/2 oz swimmer in white. Just flat out catches!

  21. That is the one I want!!
  22. I also have a 7000i ct c3 mag. I am still learning the saltwater bait caster‘s but with that reel on my 11 foot Lami and 4 ounces I can get over 100 yards. With the 7000 I lose quite a bit. I am looking for a 6500 and I am going to post in the WTB later today.
  23. 3 please. Thanks Lou.
