Re: Abu Ambassadeur Seven Sprint


You are only ever going to be average distance-wise at best running a 7000, 7500 or Sl20SH, that said at some locations like the hurunui, orari and opihi big distance is not required. For top surf reels I would look at Akios 555 or 656 , penn mag 525, or penn squall 12 (all with no level wind) for mono and possibly one of the abu revo (level wind) series if going braid. The complete angler guys were using the revo toro’s last year I think with braid. Lots of bespoke reel tuning gear available on ebay to soup up 6500 rockets, Daiwa 7HT’s and the like if you feel like tweaking existing gear.
