Nope, but I've heard that they're good reels.  I'll stick with my Zebco 33 though. O0 ;D

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.

I havn't used anything Abu Garcia but speaking of the Ugly Stick...I got one an I really love that thing.You can slam the tip in a truck door and it will not break.I love how you can switch from small pan fish to large catfish and never worry about your rod  O0

I had one of those cardinals about 15 years ago, with the quick cast...loved it, but now I just use the reels that come with the poles  :-\  :idiot2 ...anyways ithe cardinal is a nice reel
your mission if you choose to accept it, is to go through the boiler maker to get to the Gut Pile Style

How much difference is there between this and an aftermarket reel?  What's wrong with the ones that come with the pole?  Will they blow up, or something?

my rod didnt come with a reel so i tried i few different ones and found that i liked the cardinal the most. I dont like buy rod reel combos very much. i like picking my reels to suit what i want the rod to do for me.
