I am no expert caster but Ihave an abu 6500cs rocket that I have tuned and find I can cast just as far with it as my 6500ct rocket.
W hen I tuned my cs I fitted a ball bearing levelwind (a bearing at each end),a ceramic levelwind pawl and a ball bearing to the levelwind idler gear,you would not beleive how smooth this reel is.
As I said I can cast just as far no matter which reel I use,with a baited trace I am realisticaly casting about 130-150 yds this is a basic OTG cast.
Also just to put the cat among the pigeons the abus go further than my 525 mag extra.
naybe when it comes to fishing there is no great difference in casting performance,Iexpect its completely different on the tournament field.
How many of us can cast to a standard where the levelwind makes a dlfference to fishing distance?

If you can cast the same distance with both I'd stick with the one with the levelwind(It's never happened like that for me though!!!!!!!)
