A call to ABU customer service will get you the "official" answer. However, it's nearly impossible, or almost meaningless, to describe reel performance via "inches per crank". Retrieve rate specifics will be greatly affected by spool diameter/circumference. More line on a spool equals greater spool diameter, which equals more inches retrieved per spool revolution. Smaller spool diameter equals a lower rate of retrieve. Your "inches per crank" rates are always smallest at the start of your retrieve, and always largest toward the end. Likewise, the amount of line you're retrieving is always changing. IMHO: Put as much line on your ABU as your comfort zone allows, and pay more attention to gear ratios than "inches per crank".

I agree completely with Chief. Gear ratio is what you are looking for not a variable stat. Ever since people started using Trinidads, which advertise 48 inches per crank, that seems to be the info people are looking for. However, it is still incredibly variable. But if you want a more definitive answer, we tried to measure it last year to compare to a Trinidad TN 12. A full 7000i Pro Rocket. Both were spooled with White 100# Tuf-line Plus. The Abu picked up about 32 inches per crank - If I remember correctly.

It's relative to how full the spool is and at what point in the retrieve you're at.

Saltist 50? Their 40 model does 48 inches per crank at full capacity, 30 and 20 do less and are physically smaller than the 40 or a 7000.

And which trinidad is uncomfortable? There are at least 3 model's/sizes all with different line pickup rates. The 16N is the big one, about the same size as a saltist 40 or a 7000, might be a tad larger.

jred sry bout the 50 had the revo stuck in my head comparing to the saltist 30 i tried the 16n last year and didn't like it it just felt akward might not have been all the real was on a freinds rod which is a 8' okuma the handle seems to be thicker on this as well I already have a 7000 was given to me and its not exceptionally comfortable either but i make do it was free.

Saltist 30TH (tall/Narrow)is the most like the Trinidad for burning. I feel it helps to have a longer rod with the high speed...minimum 8'6" otherwise I feel like I'm fighting the rod and tougher to keep the lure in the water, figure 8's etc.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
