This reel out of the box was a 100 yard caster coupled with 12 foot penn rod. Super happy with reel. And it looks Badass

Great reel
November 13, 2017
Excellent cast control. Even though I'm still somewhat inexperienced using baitcasting reels, I had no birds nests when casting, even when I tried to. Paired with a 10 1/2 st croix mojo 2-6, it really performs.
ProsCast control, comfortable handle, easy to take apart and clean
ConsNone

Terrific Surf Reel
August 23, 2016
I've been using this reel for well over a year now for west coast surf fishing with flawless results on a St Croix Avid 10' surf rod, and 10lb Ande tournament mono. It's been soaked repeatedly in salt water with no problems. Super easy to take down for rinsing and cleaning. Upgraded spool bearings to Boca orange seal ceramic with high speed oil for best performance. I only need to use a bit of the mag brake when casting (no centrifugal or mechanical braking needed if you're an experienced caster), very quick and easy to adjust for wind conditions. I've used Abu baitcasters for over 40 years and this is my favorite. Thanks to Abu for making such a great reel!
ProsCompact, light, sharp looking, top quality reel made in Sweden. Easily outcast any spinning reel.
ConsRecommend upgrading the spool bearings (simple to do) for some serious distance. Seems a bit overpriced when compared to the other Abu Swedish reels like the Record with a level wind and more bearings. Those magnets must be expensive!

Nice Reel
December 19, 2014
I fished with this reel last week for Mutton Snapper in Florida. Very nice. Smooth drag and the reel handles very nicely on fish in 125 feet of water. Very much in line with the all the 7000 reels over the years. All of this said. I only have used it for one week of fishing. Will give it a real workout over the Summer when I fish the reefs from May-August in Florida. I see no reason this reel will not work very nicely as part of a basically "light tackle" set up for reef fishing up to 140 feet.
ProsSee my general review
ConsNone as of yet.

What surf rod would be good to match up with blue yonder 7000?
1 Answer
The St. Croix Mojo Surf Casting rods between 10' and 11' would match up very well to the Blue Yonder 7000.
