I currently use the Abu 6500(C3?) reel for my swimbait tossing.I've had no major problems with it.Just keep it lubed and clean and it will put up with alot of abuse.I don't know the exact gear ratio on mine but it's a fairly high speed reel,works well for swimbaits.A great reel you won't be disapointed.
But...if you do have the money,I would go with the Calcutta,it's much smoother and all around better quality reel.
