Rated 5 out of 5 by Bowe **Best reel on the river!**
I own six of these reels and just love the way they perform. Long nights chasing monster cats or tournament fishing you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 Best reel I own.
I use this reel to catch Alligator Gars in South Texas, and it does the job. I can cast pretty far with it, and have the strength to take on any fish I encounter. Line out alarm is fairly loud which helps out a lot with the Gars.

Rated 1 out of 5 Just a piece of junk!!
I have bought 4 of these reels two years ago and all four I have had to take in twice to get repairs, I just came back from my first day out on the water and two of them broke down (one on a monster pike!!) , These reels are a money pit and I would not recommend them to anyone!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DTro My Favorite Catfish Reel
I fish for big nasty mean Flathead Catifsh all summer long and the 7000 is my favorite reel bar none. From the dependable drag to quality components, I know that when trophy bites I'll be ready for it.
Keep this reel clean and it will last a lifetime.

ok this is for every one who may not know this already abu garcia reels c3 CT are not level wind the ct is what to look for if you do not wish to have level wind the c3 is kind of a sub model code to tell the internal options mainly bearings i believe.
yes it has a clicker but the reel itself is not worth the money, my father just bought the same reel with a levelwind and it is a waste of money. trust me the magnets on it arent magnets they are just plastic. plus the reel just falls apart if you try to work on it. hope this helps
