    Looks similar quality to the 6500 sports mnag if so it should be a reliable reel , dont know if i like the spool disengager tho ......lets face it alot of fishing gear to manufactured over the far east the likes of loomis etc etc ,so i cant see that effecting it much its just cheaper labour with i assume the same quality ,,,these big companies have to much to loose if there eqwui[ptment is not upto tip top condition .......time will tell,,,,,,

    -from others not yet.
    -but i have one, looks great good build quality seems to have the same new super smooth powerful gear train of the other 7000i series as for the mag brakes i will let you know but from first impressions it seems brilliant :wink:


    overall from first impressions: -
    i love it ;) -girlfriends christmas present to me ;) will post an update when i've taken it fishing for the first time and had a cast or two (and hopefully some fish) with it ;)

    Re: abu 7oooi c3 ctmag?

    Any idea what the side plates are made from John ?

    Hopefully not the same tat as those blue 7500 ct's

    If they get it right abu could make the best reels on the market.

    Re: abu 7oooi c3 ctmag?

    i have now tried the 7000 ic3 mag out casting now :cheesy: (fished the brigg today) and it is awesome!
    - tremendous casting ability with superb control , smooth and hassle free. and yes the mag system does perform and is flawless and easily ajustable. :wink: the gear train is very powerfull quiet and smooth and is easily fast enough to retrieve at a respectable rate ( 5.3 : 1 )

    sadly though today the fish wern't wanting anything to do with the idea taking part in and thus completing my trial of this reel :no:

    -ah well thats for another day!

    had a play with one today in GB dangling, felt good but the spool was out of true when revolved and had a slight click inn the gears , don't know if it was a spool problem or a drive problem, but i know quality controle should have knocked it back,
    not quite the same quality finish as the Swedish built ones used to be :sad:

    Ditto the above I ve got an old grey side plate 6500 ct Rocket and it flies still after about 12 years of not being looked after very well.Bought a Chrome rocket 6500 this year and found the spool not true running and a very noisey reel as well, the older one knocks the spots of the new version as far as casting goes, wonder how the chrome one will be in 10 years time ?

    Cheers Jellyworm
