Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooooth! Just bought a 6500 c3 now I know why everyone loves these reels. On an 8' medium heavy rod casts extremely smooth and a very long way. I'm affraid these reels will become a bad habit for me.

Did Abu Garcia sell out to the Chinese?

Some Abu Garcia reels are made in China. Be sure to research the reel before you buy it. If it is made in Sweden, it will be marked on the reel.
