    Hi lads, ive' just bought an abu 6500ca reel, i think it may be quite old, but it has never had line on!
    has anyone had anything to do with these reels?
    Am i likely to have problems casting with it, or should i just use it on the yak?
    Anyone any idea how old it may be? thanks a lot.

    Look at the reel seat footplate, it should a number stamped on it, that denoted the date of manufacture. Would need to see it to tell its age.
    Cheers Col.

    Hi Col, thanks for replying, it has no serial number, it just says, Garcia Ambassadeur 6500ca on the handle side.
    On the other end it says product of Sweden, high speed!
    Cant' find a serial number on it at all

    A pic would be best to see what you have :yes:

    Dont waste it on the kayak if its in mint condition !!

    It would fetch good money from a collector :yes:
