I'm not sure about this bigman as the Abu 6500 C4 has the 6.3:1 gear ratio as standard. The hanldle side plate on the 6500 C4 is exactly the the same size as the side plate on the Mag Elite so I dont see why he couldn't just exchange whatever's inside the C4 reel as far as gears go to the Mag Elite.I heard on the grapvine that there just isnt room to fit a decent set of gears into the slideplate of the abu mag.
did you fit them yourself? are they pretty easy to fit? i've taken the gears out to service the reel so know what i'm doing, just wondered how the gear set come.hi mate i have them in both my reel and had them in for about a year and had no trouble with them mikes reel repais do them i think they are well worth the money and i think make the reel even smother
