Abu Garcia Morrum ZX 3600

Recommended Posts

I had the opportunity to order a Morrum ZX 3600 for $239 total from a retailer and did so last night.  Is this worth the purchase? I believe they retail for $499. I know TT reviewed it well but thought I would ask to see if anyone has used this reel. Thank you!

SCORE !   That's an extremely good price indeed. As you say, retail price has always been listed at $499. I got mine for $370 shipped a couple years ago and thought I was getting a bargain.

It's a very nice reel and coincidentally I fished mine just this morning. It will chuck a lipless crank out there a LONG way. I got the Morrum because I already had quite a few Conquests and Calcuttas and wanted something different. Also, a selling feature to me was the higher IPT than what was available on Conquests back then. If I was in the market today for the same type of reel, I would actually get the Conquest HG now that the higher IPT of the HG model is available.

Still - at $239 total - you have an OUTSTANDING reel that you will enjoy for a long time. :thumbsup:

Nice Reel ~ !

Goose you know how I feel about that one ~ it's just Sweet.

Please keep me in mind if you're ever in the mood to re-home it.

I promise I'd take very good care of it.  I'd read it a bed time story & tuck it in every night . . . .

For sure, I'll keep you in mind if I ever need to "slim the herd" !

Don't know if you recall an earlier post, but this reel, the Met DC, a Conquest 100, and a Calcutta CTE-100GT were all supposed to be in my will for you...

HOWEVER, I am not planning on going away anytime soon................;)

I own several of these Abu Garcia Morrum reels, both the Mag (lower gear ratio) version and the High Speed version (like yours in the photo) with a higher gear ratio. They are terrific reels and much better behaved than equivalent size Shimano Calcutta TE's and Shimano Calcutta Conquests when tossing lightweight lures.
