    The 6000 and 8000 are the same reel with diffrent depths to the spools. These would offer more options when spooling up. I would buy one 6000 and one 8000 spooling the 8000 with line and the 6000 with braid.

    5000RE is tiny for carping, its more like a feeder reel TBH.

    Unless you want to cast over 100yds then the 6000 will be fine. If you look on ebay, the older 6010 model sells for less.

    I have two 8000s and a 5000. When carping the 5000 is always on a margin or close range rod.
    I then use the 5000 for barbel fishing, stalking, float fishing etc.
    I think this is a good allround setup.
