Abu 6000 is what I use. 12# trilene on it. Pulled a 30# channel cat with it.

You can give it to me. If not I might trade you a big spinning reel for it

I was never any good with a bait casting reel, but I love my spinning reel.

I've never heard of a bait casting reel. How are they different than a 'regular' reel?

Depends on what you classify as a "regular" reel winds. If its a zebco then its the fact that it has no covers except on the sides. If its a spinning reel its the fact that it doesn't have the flip closed bail and it is stopped by your thumb. A bait caster is the farthest casting, most durable, and best fighting reel made. All because of how the drag can still work the spool even if you never stop reeling where as w a zebco or spinning reel you HAVE to stop reeling in line becadue if you don't it will snap your line and burn your drag out.

Ya. I can post an example of a spinning reel if you need me to so you can see the differences. I can't post a pic of a zebco because I don't own one of the dang things-its what's considered a beginners reel or old folks reel because of how simple they are to use.
