Took my Abu 7500C3CT to the Cape Cod Canal this weekend:

I wanted to see how it performed doing some Ditch Jigging with 4 oz. bucktails. I had it overspooled with 80 lb.(?) Power Pro but was too lazy to spool it right. biggrin.gif

 

It was low tide when I arrived so I had to climb down to the edge of the canal in the dark.

 

Wouldn't you know I forgot to use my rods to help me keep from slipping and fell right on my butt. redface.gif

 

What's worse is the 7500 took the full brunt and got a nice, new gouge on the sideplate. icon24.gif

 

But- like a Timex- it took a licking and kept on ticking.

 

That is until I got a blowup I couldn't untangle so the reel hasn't helped me catch a Striper yet. I had to cut out a lot of PP to get it right when I got back home. I need to put some heavier oil in it to tame it down a little bit.
