In that size range, I tend to favour Penn. The Jigmaster is stalwart, bulletproof, a cinch to mag, and never fails, IMO. I have a Tekota, Calcutta, Quantum Big Irons, yadi, yadi, but for $120 for the Abu 7000c3, I'm somewhat disappointed by it's performance. It's nothing like the feel of the smaller sized reels and it seems too nice and pricey to really deserve the type of trashing I'd dish out with a Penn.
