Abu Garcia Reels
Pros: Excellent reel
Best Uses: Casting and trolling
Comments: I have several Abu Garcia reels 6501,6001,5501 and a 4601 Kokanee Special all outstanding reels. I'm replacing my first levelwind a Shimano 201 Bantam with this 4601 which I'm using for kokanee fishing with light tackle set-ups on downriggers. Excellent reel should outlast my orginal levelwind reel.

Comments: My purchase was a left handed wind reel. I have used my Dads right handed one before with no problems. He also swears by the brand as we also own larger reels. It's easy to maintain yourself and ideal for salmon fishing. This is a great reel that you will have for a lifetime.
