An update on the Abu Seven Sprint baitcaster. Have been giving it a try-out recently on the kahawai. When casting and retrieving it feels identical to my Abu 7000. The one thing I do notice however is that the 6.3:1 retrieve is way faster than the 7000. If you wind flat-out the ticer comes in very quickly! It feels a we bit lumpy in the gears though. Not too bad but it is noticeable.
