user friendly any help/info would be very helpful.

I`ve got both Steve, 3 of the penns and one of the abus , the penns are a lot more rugged, and can winch in treble headers of dogs all night, but the abu will cast a bit further.
Malcolm in Beaumaris is selling the Penn 525 mag2 for £100, it`s well worth a trip down there for any big items.

I don't use multis so can't add much, but did I read somewhere that recently made Penn reels are not so well made due to manufacturing relocating to China? Might be totally wrong but I've an idea someone said older 2nd hand ones are holding their value as a result

Might be duff info though!
