I was looking for a good spinning reel to fight big cats on the river to go along with my other catfish poles mounted with abu garcia 6500c3 reels. Although it's made to be used in salt water, a guy at bass pro recommend it for catfishing. I mounted it on a tiger ulgy stik lite, and without a doubt I can say
this reel is the best spinning reel i've ever used for catfish. It's a beast with ton of drag weight thats silky smooth, it also has powerful gears that will yank any big wisker kitty out of the water. The best part is that with 30lb braid and a 3 ounce weight you can cast a mile away.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great reel for the money.
I needed a reel of this size fast and was looking at the SSV7500 but it was out of stock. I chose this reel expecting to get what I considered to be an OK reel. To my surprise, I am very satisfied with the reel. The motion is very smooth and the drag works great.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHETHER THE SPOOL FOR 360 CAN BE EXCHANGED TO THAT FOR 260 AND CAN BE FITTED TO THE REEL BODY FOR 360. ONLY SPOOLS FOR 260 AND 360 ARE DIFFERENT EACH FROM THEIR REEL BODIES? THEIR BODIES ARE SAME? SO THE SPOOLS HAVE THE COMPATIBITY FOR EACH 260 AND 360 BODIES? 460 & 560 HAVE THE SAME COMPATIBILITIES????
The answer is “Yes” and “No”. The spools are interchangeable between the 260 & 360 as well as the 460 & 560. However, since the 360 and 560 are larger diameter spools, you would also need to change the rotor cup assembly. The bodies of the 260 & 360 and 460 & 560 are the same as well as all the internal parts.
