Penn battle 6000 - $65 Shipping will be calculated by location or local pickup available in Essex county NJ
  2. Here you have an older, lightly used, very nice Abu Garcia 6500C, that has never seen the salt! The pics speak for themselves! (Habs pencil not included…!!!) mechanically and cosmetically in great condition! Freshly cleaned and lightly lubed, for pluggin use in freshwater, if you’re going to hit the salt, might wanna add some more grease in there first! I pop my reels open frequently, so I don’t use a ton of grease, It just slows the reel down! It has a fresh set of spool bearings, and this is the older Abu that has no IAR, has AR dog only! So, spool it up and go and can throw some 20 pd Berkley big game on there, for a few more bucks for you as well, if you would like! Local meet up within reason of 08330-$75 If you want it shipped, throw another $20 on there for shipping fees and insurance! NO G&S: PPFF OR USPS MO ONLY Thanks to TimS and the SOL community

  6. Abu Garcia Bag has 2 larger boxes with adjustable dividers and 6 small ones with fixed small fixed dividers. also has a zip down area with elastics (not sure what they are for…. Has shoulder strap Never been used $40 local pick up Nassau County Long Island or $50 shipped PP
  7. I used to be 75% baitcasting/conventional and 25% spinning from shore. However, it has reversed and I'm using my spinning gear more. I decided to sell those that I don't use much anymore. Check my other threads for additional baitcasters. I will list them separately so it's easier to keep track of. I am selling two as a bundle. I don't think I could sell the Orra2 Inshore by itself, so just throwing it in there for an incentive, LOL. I used and abused the Orra2, since that was one of my first baitcasters that I used for learning. I didn't use the Revo Inshore as much. Abu Garcia Revo Inshore (RVO3 INS) spooled with 30 lb Spiderwire Abu Garcia Orra2 Inshore (ORRA2INS) spooled with 20 lb Kast King (Not sure) I'm asking for $150 shipped for both. I couldn't find the boxes.
  8. Looking for a record 41. That's the small left handed model. Located in Brooklyn
  9. I am looking for the above reel in decent shape. Just that specific reel, which is a LH reel. No similar Abus or reels considered. Thanks.
  10. Hey! I want to buy a new Abu to play with and I have the chance to buy an used 9/10 condition Abu 5001C reel from 1986 for $200 Canadian. I have also been looking into buying a new Abu 5501 Pro Rocket Black Edition for $259.99 Canadian. I've been doing a lot of research and looking into the internal schematics and I cannot find much information on these reels. I've attached both schematics below and circled the differences in red. For the Pro Rocket Black Editions all I can find for info is that some people say they cast further than the C3/C4's, and that they feel more sturdy, but others say there is little difference more than a marketing gimmick over the C3/C4's. On the schematics (below) the only difference is the side plate has an second cast control knob (dual cast control knobs), and inside the second knob is a speed bullet or speed bushing. I can't find any more information nor can I understand how or why that would make much difference for casting as the C3/C4's are factory centered spools, and almost identical inside besides the second cast control knob and speed bullet. Then there is 5001C from 1986. I can't find much info on it and can't even figure out what the gear ratio is? Seems 4.7:1 is likely but maybe someone can chime in? It's a bit different design inside as you can see in the schematics (below) it has it's spool and spool shaft as one piece with the bearings on either end instead of in between the shaft and the spool like on modern Abu's. I am wondering how this would cast compared to the newer ones, feel, and hold up? I have an Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 5501 C3 that I made a few upgrades to (Dual worm drive bearings, ceramic spool bearings, cog wheel bearing, and ceramic pawl). I enjoy how easy it is to take apart and clean. It would be sweet to buy one of these reels I have listed and have a second Abu to work with. I am hoping that one of these reels would be a step up in the casting distance department/quality feel department. I use it to cast 10grams to 30 grams of lead with a 5 foot leader to a lure (spinner) that has no weight on the ocean from shore in the Pacific north west for Salmon. Any info would be appreciated
  11. Looking to buy an older Abu Garcia 5500c (one of the silver Made in Sweden ones) like the one in the pic. Doesn't need to have the power handle (the factory handle is fine) and doesn't need line. I'm looking to spend about $40 shipped/PP'd but would prefer local pick up in Nassau County, Long Island. Thanks guys!
  12. Selling a used Abu garcia, "the original" ambassadeur, size 6000. Reel is in excellent shape, used a few years and caught many stripers, blues and fluke with it, but don't use it nearly enough since I got more into low profiles in Salt. Has the abu garcia power handle on it, and currently has 30 lb braid on it. $75 shipped.
  13. I’m looking for a nice beginner baitcaster combo and I’m thinking about the two baitcasters names. Does someone who has used both have a recommendation? Even if you have only used one please tell me what you thought.
  14. I'm trying to gear up for reservoir striper fishing. Got a nice book by John Sawyer on SC reservoir striper fishing and it was recommended to get some Abu 6500's and use 30 lb mono for downline, livebait, or trolling with a 7ft striper ugly stik. I purchased a bunch of the 6500 "S" series reels new for $44 ea, which is perfect for me money-wise, but I am wondering if I am going to be disappointed in the 6 reels I got. They have 11lbs and 5.1:1 ratios. Are they just crap and i should sell them? I can't afford 6 C3 6500's with the 15lbs drag- even used they're going for $80-$100ea. Should I just get a bunch of $20 jigmasters or misc Penn dock bait chunkers or stick with the Chinese Garcia "S" reels?
  15. Looking for help to find out the value of the reel I have. It’s a abu Garcia with a leather case has a stamp on top of the box of there seal no idea how old it is either. Could use any info on the reel
  16. Red Abu 7000 made in Sweden. Bought here some time ago. Well used and it shows but still functions and with some elbow grease most of the corrosion shouldn't be an issue. Upgraded to ceramic pawl, upgraded bearings, and upgraded drag. Mainly was my chunking reel from the surf. Loaded with 65lb PP. $75 shipped Paypal St. Croix Triumph TSWC70MHF 20-40lb. Pairs well with the Abu. Barely used and in great shape. Smooth rear grip with gimbal but. Guides and reel seat in great shape as well. $90 pick up $100 shipped Paypal. Take both for $150 shipped paypal.
  17. I have 4 reels I'd like to sell. 1st reel is a very lightly used tsunami shield 4000. Reel is in spectacular shape, I bought it brand new in the spring and never got to use it in salt, it got used a couple nights at my buddy's lake catching some small catfish and that's it. I actually have an extra spool from an older one I broke that I included as well. Main spool is spooled with 30 lb braid, lightly used, and the original box. $85 shipped. 2nd reel is a Daiwa BG 4500. This one I cant figure out. It's in great exterior shape but is cranking loud and pretty rough. I've used it as is but it should probably be opened up. Has the original box. $50 shipped. 3rd reel is an Abu Garcia Revo SC baitcast reel, right handed, 7.1:1 ratio. Really solid reel, I've used it a few years largemouth fishing, would make a great freshwater and light inshore reel. Has 30 lb braid on it. $60 shipped. Last one is a Bass Pro Shops formula spinning reel size 20. Holds 105 yds of 10 lb mono. Nice little reel for the price, a perfect freshwater reel or would make a great starter reel for someone. $25 shipped.
  18. I have an Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 7000i reel. Reel has hardly been used, maybe 2 dozen times and lived on a shelf for years. Comes with box, papers, oil, brakes, and reel seat clamp. All original parts. Small chip near thumb switch, other than that the reel is mint. This is a great reel for someone looking to get into chunking, throws weights down to 2oz up to 10oz with ease and minimal backlashes. Very beginner friendly too. Asking $75 shipped or $65 local pick up near Queens... Thanks for looking.
  19. I'm selling it as a package... Too much work to split. I'm selling the whole thing shipped for $220. I'm accepting Paypal. It will cost over $20 for shipping, so there's no room for negotiation. 1. Case - Plano XL Pistol/Accessory Case (Retail $20) Condition: Good condition with little bit of tear on the foam - See pictures 2. Abu Garcia C4-6600 (Retail $140) Condition: Blemish on the reel, but functionally 100%. Comes spooled with Power Pro braid, but unsure what lb I put on there. 3. Daiwa Saltist Levelwind A STTLW30HA (Retail $180) Condition: Used once or twice and in excellent condition. Comes spooled with Power Pro braid, but unsure what lb. 4. Bass Pro Shops Quick Draw QD40F (Retail $15) 5. 2 x Shakespeare reels that came with Ugly Stik GX2 rods as a combo. One is spooled with braid and the other is spooled with mono. (Retail N/A) 6. Shakespeare reel that came with another combo. (Retail N/A)
  20. Very lightly used Daiwa Saltist BG40H for sale. It has a small scuff on the left side plate, picture is included. 10/10 mechanically. I only have the reel, no box included. I am located in MD and will ship at the buyers expense. Asking $130 or best offer for the reel. I accept Venmo and Paypal. Thanks!
  21. I have an Abu Garcia 7000 c3 that I was attempting to do maintenance on. I am having major issues with the spring on the first picture. I cannot for the life of me figure out how it goes back on. It controls the free spool so it has to be 100% correct. It was under tension when I was dis-assembling the reel so I could not take pictures before. I have an older(80's model) Abu 7000 that I have done maintenance on with the push button free spool but the flip lever free spool on the newer models is giving me fits. Any links/pics/advice would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Both reels have been cast over grass a few times but never fished. Box and paper work are included. BY has one very small scuff mark on cross bar. Black Edition is perfect. Asking $150 shipped lower 48 for Blue Yonder and $140 shipped lower 48 for Black Edition. Boxes tell you the specs. Selling to fund some new equipment that I will actually use and not just look at. Thanks
  23. Two used large low profiles for sale. First is an Okuma Komodo SS 364. Excellent condition, used primarily in freshwater with swimbaits. Only a couple minor marks on it. Comes with original box and both handles (paddle and power). Asking $130 shipped. Second is an Abu Garcia Revo TORO Nacl 60 5.4:1. Don't have the box/paperwork and only have the power handle. Reel is in great shape mechanically but has some boat rash on the body. Very powerful reel, just a little wider than I'd like. Tough to find. Line not included. Asking $160 shipped.
  24. Hi guys and greetings from Australia, Im a keen fisherman and have recently received a rod and reel courtesy of an old friend who is no longer with us, I've had exposure to bait casters for a long time but not this particular model a 6500CT Chrome Rocket, Apart from a little boat rash the reel is in excellent nick however I can't seem to get her going right as I think she should cast. Could anyone on here with experience with this particular reel sort me out, I assume the oil is gunk after such a long time but from what little info I can find it is without a mag so what I think what I believe is the tension knob is wrong. Also how different of a reel is it to other ABU's i.e. how do I correctly set one up with a rod, what do you guys have them cast with weight wise and rod length? Kind Regards, George
  25. Hi guys, greetings from Australia It seems like most people that own Morrums collect them and don't take them out often but out of the members that do, does anyone have any product info of what the bigger 7700 and 6600 were designed to do? I have a mate that I recently purchased a small 3600 Morrum off of and am negotiating on his Suveran, he wasn't going to originally get rid of them but I promised I would fish with them so now he has offered me access the rest of his Morrums. Thing is if its a freshwater only reel then its complete overkill for anything round here I know of, I would love to throw it on a boat rig for when I get the chance to go out because then I could actually use it; but it seems the consensus belief that the bearings are too exposed and will suffer from corrosion quick? Any one have first hand experience for or against this tale I would love to hear from you. Kind regards, G
