When it comes to smooth, long distance casting, very few reels can compete with the Abu 6500 range. The rocket is the famously free-spinning, centrifugally-braked distance reel in the range, for the true purist. With no magnetic braking system, the spool just keeps on going and going. With its 3 stainless steel ball bearings, instant anti reverse, precision brass gears and smooth multi disc star drag, the Abu Rocket is a joy to use. Capable of holding 245 yards of 14lb line with a retrieve ratio of 5.3:1, this reel is a very capable fishing tool.
The Chrome Rocket is a true speed machine & can hit huge distances in the hands of the experts, but it can be fine-tuned to suit your ability and casting style. There are a variety of different brake blocks, bearings and oils available to make the reel run quicker, or slower, which makes it an ideal reel for both the beginner and the seasoned long distance caster. This is a reel that will grow with you, no matter how far you take it.
