About this product

Learn more about and Buy Abu Garcia® C3 Catfish Special Round - Ultimate Round Baitcast Reel for Big Fish on Fishbrain Shop.

The Abu Garcia® C3 Catfish Special Round Baitcast Reel stands apart as the ultimate catfish reel. Built on the same platform, the C3 Catfish Special offers the additional strength and durability needed to outlast the biggest, toughest fish in freshwater. This is a big, beefy, burly, brawly reel in two cat-sized styles

Built for quickness, the 6500 features 3 stainless steel ball bearings + 1 roller bearing and a 5.3:1 gear ratio. The power-focused 7000 has 2 stainless steel ball bearings + 1 roller bearing and a 4.1:1 gear ratio. Both have been given extended-length bent cranking handles with oversized power knobs for maximum torque against hard-pulling fish, and both feature the distinctive custom paint and graphics that set these reels apart from the rest.

You'll find Abu Garcia's Carbon Matrix™ drag to be smooth and consistent at all settings, and the 6-pin centrifugal brake to be quite helpful in pinpointing each cast. Get extra power and torque with the extended bent handle, which makes reeling in those hard-pulling fish a little easier.

And you'll appreciate the synchronized level wind system, designed to deliver superior line lay and castability. For ultimate power and dependable performance when targeting big cats, it's hard to argue with the C3 Catfish Special!
