I recently purchased this at Bass Pro to use surf casting. And I will say compare to my old Penn 200 Surfmaster this will cast a country mile once you get it all dialed in. I regulary fish the Raritan bay from Sandy Hook beach and cast a chunk of bunker with 3-4 oz to hold bottom and this reel can handle it. I have landed 25 and 30 lbs fish on this. And when I use this to boat fish I have landed large fish. Took a little longer then normal but it will handle a larger fish if you know how to fight it. I wouldn't take this Tuna fishing, but im sure it could handle a small Tuna! If you want a saltwater reel but dont wanna pay the price for Shimano, GET THIS REEL! It will handler larger fish. I learned about this reel from a gentleman catching 60lbs tarpon in Florida and hes landed them no problem.

I have owned an abu garcia 6500 for around 13 years. The time came when I needed a larger reel so I purchased the 7000C3i because I had never had a problem with my 6500. This reel is very smooth casting and retrieving. I spooled it up with 300 yards of 65lb power pro. I am yet to catch a large fish on it, but I have had no problems with it. After unboxing I immediately lubricated it with FrogLube and the reel is not only smooth but also easy to clean. After several all day trips surf fishing and not hosing down my gear until the next morning I have noticed no corrosion or other issues.
