ABU Garcia Record

Recommended Posts

Speaking of round reels. Has anybody used this one?

Silky smooth and built like a tank.  They're heavy though and I don't see many applications beyond the 40 series for bass fishing because of the weight factor.

I've always liked the round reels. I have a Record 50 series on a Allstar Platinum 7' MXF rod that I used for jigging spoons on wipers this fall. Cart hit the nail on the head when he said Silky smooth and built like a tank. I appreciate the quality and smoothness more than I mind a couple of extra ounces in weight. One super reel IMHO.

I got one of these reel for cheap($60 from craigslist 4 months ago) and comes down one word-solid after few months of ownership(best abu round reel ever). It cast extremely far and very smooth. I sold my reel 1 month after i brought it cause I mostly fish for bass/sometimes pike and prefer low profile, the model I had is RN60 HC which mean high capacity with power handle and its the largest in the record line up, which is suitable for large freshwater like monster pike and muskie and samon or you can use it for sw fishing, the carbon drag will offer beastly 15lb of drag pressure and will never let you down. So if ur targeting bass/pike, get the smaller rn40 or rn50 and rn60/rn60 HC for muskie/samon and sw fishing.

PS: The RN60/RN60 HC would be a great chioce if you're trolling since they both have the clicking line alarm on the side.

Happy fishing
