Anglers that appreciate tradition, durability and first-class performance can get reacquainted with a fishing legend with the redesigned Abu Garcia® 7000 series of reels. Anglers familiar with the original 7000 series remember the sheer   power offered by this size of reel. Abu Garcia maintained the power with its latest incarnations while increasing the balance and adding new features.

Packed with functional and durable materials that will last a lifetime, the family of 7000 reels features an Anti-Distortion spool (ADS) design, giving the reel strength for long fights plus DuragearTM brass gears for extended gear life.

This series also features a four-pin centrifugal brake for effective cast control. The ergonomically angled handle and star drag keep angler’s hands closer to the action. The synchronized level wind system improves line lay while a corrosion resistant instant anti-reverse bearing provides greater protection.

The red C-7000 includes one bearing while the silver C3-7000 and black CS-7000 Pro Rocket have two stainless-steel High Performance Corrosion Resistant (HPCRTM) bearings plus one roller bearing.

To control hard-charging fish the C3-7000 and CS-7000 Pro Rocket include a Carbon MatrixTM drag system and the C-7000 has a multi-disc drag system.

The MSRP for the C-7000 is $149.95, $169.95 for the C3-7000 and $179.95 for the CS-7000 Pro Rocket.
