New Reel – Abu 6500 C3CT Blue Yonder

25 10 2009

The Abu Garcia 6500 C3CT Blue Yonder is a limited edition re-run of the Abu Elite (of which I have three). Ever since having seen it in the tackle shop the first time, I’ve wanted one.

Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and bought one from Lagoon Bait, at a cost of £110. Got the reel home, and took some photos of it alongside one of my Elites – superb little reel – photos to come soon.

Although I’d arranged a fishing session for the night tide with M and J, I decided not to take the new reel, leaving it boxed for now. I’m 99% sure it will come in to service pretty soon, but as I have two perfectly functional and well looked after Elites that I use on a regular basis there’s no need right now. I wanted to secure one before they were all sold – apparently there was a production run of just 400 of them. Perhaps when one of my Elites bite the dust..

Latest session report on the way..
