Get an Ambassadeur 6501C3. They're like a Meccano kit, when something breaks or wears out you just put a replacement in. Average cost of spares is about £1 per item.

Don't get a 6501C4, they don't cast or handle nearly as nicely.

have to agree as these are what i use for big jerkbaits and i also have a pair of 5501-c3 which are just as good but a bit smaller.
for me abu multipliers are the best.

6501C3 for the big stuff and the 5601AB (with the anti-backlash mechanism removed....nice blue colour too) for the smaller stuff.

I also take the brake blocks out and lube regularly with GT85.

For the bigger lures, go for 80lb or even 100. It makes no difference to your catch rate and there's less chance of a crack-off. You also have the option of pulling snagged lures free.

I use 50lb on my smaller reel.

Poach is right, go heavier or you will lose a lot more lures.

there used to be a thing called a "lure dog" which was a contraption with two large stainless steel rings that you put over your line and it was attached to a piece of thin nylon rope. the idea was that you put the rings over your line, held the rod high and let it slide to where your lure was fouled, the trebles passed through the stainless rings and the you simply heaved on the rope to get your lure back. wonder if they are still available? if not i think i may make one as some of my lures are irreplaceable. in fact i think this could be a dragons den moment if you cant buy them anymore LOL Twisted Evil

When you get to the point where you've undone the tension nut on the side nut as far as you can (the spool will play from side to side a little) you then have the option of removing the brake-blocks inside, replacing the bearings with ceramic bearings and lubing with GT85. One step at a time though but once you get there, you'll be throwing lures for miles. Get the thumb trained first though cos birdnests are a nightmare.

Not worth doing IMHO you'll only get a few extra feet if you go through all that and distance isn't everything anyway. More important to work on your accuracy (especially on rivers) and controlling the retrieve.

I always say, if you don't get at least one overrun in a day's fishing you're not trying hard enough. Very Happy

Granted but that same distance requires a whole lot less effort and when you cast maybe 500 times a day, it adds up.
