Go to Reel
I mainly fish for fluke, striped bass, porgies, sea bass and tog. This reel can hold plenty of line when braid is used and can be cleaned very easily. Great value for a reel that will last years and years when taken care of properly.

The best for monomag casting
I bought it to be modified for monomag casting: new bearings, take away centrifugal brakes and levelwind. And also other details that make this reel the ideal machine for longcasting competition.

Awesome reel
I've used Abu Garcia round reels for 35 years and love them but I've only ever had 5000, 6000, and 7000 series reels. When I saw this one I had to try it and I loved it so much I bought a second one. I'm right handed and always used right handed reels but these I got in left handed versions. All the quality you'd expect from Abu in a tight little great casting reel.
ProsEasy to handle, good line capacity for a smaller reel, Abu quality
ConsZip, zero, nada

Classic Round Reel!
This is a workhorse of a reel. Simple and Proven design. I prefer to service all my reels myself and these reels are very easy to self service. From catfish to light Saltwater use, this reel is just about the most affordable and reliable reel you can purchase.
ProsSimple design Extremely durable Easy to service

New Abu Garcias are the best ones so far
I have been using Abu Garcia reels for over 20 years. The new ones are simply the smoothest ones so far. Strong, smooth drags and of course all metal construction make for a reel that you will enjoy for years to come. You can cast this reel so easily you will surprised. You can count on this reel to perform.
ProsSmooth, strong drags, easy to cast, all metal construction.
Cons None

Is the 6500 similar in size to a Avet sxj?
It is roughly the same size as the Avet SX. It has a considerably wider spool than the SXJ.
