    Default Quick casting reels

    This post is about the German 700b and 800b's, I was wondering if anyone uses or has used them, and what your opinion is. I have some, but have never bothered using them, I've got enough Ambassadeurs that hardly get used lately. I'm really curious hat others think of them.

    thanks, Tim

    Tim,

    I'm an Abu guy and can explain why. I have a handful of trusted baitcaster reels that have served me well over the years. Even though I've never used the D.A.M. Quick 700/800B Champion High Speed Reel I have no reason not to think they would be comparable to the Ambassadeur reels in quality, form, fit and function.

    I think most everyone fished ABU's, the lack of advertising couldn't have helped. Quality wise, they compared very well, but the free-spool lever was in a bad place and they shouldn't have omitted the rear pillar, but compared to Ambassadeurs of the same vintage they have better drags. I just don't know how durable they are.
