    Got this for wife. She’s new to baitcasters and took to this one like a duck to water. Reel performed perfectly and operates like butter. A real workhorse, yet perfect for someone who wants to step up to big game fishing. Can’t say enough about this reel. If I had one wish, I would like to have a heavier drag, but the one it has is more than acceptable. Great reel!

    The Abu Garcia Ambassaduer.. This reel is awesome! The retrieve is smooth. Casting is really smooth too. Line capacity is amazing (mine is backed with 30lb braid to 14lb fluoro now). I took mine to Venice Pier, and was able to break it in with this little leopard shark. I think this reel is for someone who knows how to fish with baitcasters and not so much a beginner. You can’t adjust the brakes, only the tension. It’s a little tricky but if you can find YOUR settings, you’ll enjoy this. It isn’t hard but relying only on the tension and your thumb as brakes, I honestly feel that comes from practice with the low profile baitcasters. This reel offers 15lbs of max drag. It has a clicker that you can switch on/off. The retrieve is pretty fast. One thing I would change if I could is probably the crank. I feel that it’s a little small. But that’s just because my low profile reels have an extended crank (all Abu Garcia’s). Don’t let the online photos or even mine fool the size of the reel. It’s actually a good size and you can palm it comfortably. I really like that it’s made in Sweden. Thumbs up to that.

    been fishing these round reels since the original red 5000 came over from Sweden in the 1950s. this year i ordered 3 of the C4-4600s. they work great and feel just right in my hand. i use them primarily in the brackish backwaters of the Everglades for snook.

    C4 6601, is a fantastic reel. I purchased this and paired it up with a 7ft Ugly stick bait cast rod. I’m taking it to Lake Texhoma in late April and see how it does catching some big cats👍👍

    These reels are workhorses. Oil the worm gear and grease/oil the internals every once in a while and they last forever.

    Reel nice, ha! Smooth retrieval, good balance durable. Wish there was a clicker though. Hammered plenty of big lings, kings, and all other manner of cold pacific nasties, and the reel had held up very well in the salt, provided you flush with fresh water each time.Good fishing and tight lines.

    You just can’t beat the Abu Garcia quality in rods and reels. I now own four of the 6600’s and would not trade them for any other type of reels. Work great when you get a large catfish on your line. Amazon keeps the prices averaging what every other dealer post, and you get “free” shipping. Great Deal.

    I slapped this on a TWC extreme I had I use for catfishing. Slapped 30 lbs braid on and it handled any fish we caught the other night just fine. I’m sure this reel is great for many other types of fishing. But for my context river and lake catfishing. From boat and bank. These rock.**************edited review****************I had a buddy check out the reel because I was having some issues and basically this spool doesn’t have a milled hole or a post to tie off onto like other similar abu’s do. Well the line was slipping on the spool causing a lot of issues. But basically he spooled the line off and put a piece of tape on the spool holding the line then spooled it back up. And it works fine again. So it was my inexperience that led to the issue. This is a great reel I would definitely buy again.

    I have 3 of these, great for hauling in 20lb coho off the beach. Casts a mile. Backlash is your own fault.

    Love this reel. Reliable and can take a beating. Numerous trips to the salty spots on the map. If you take care of the real and clean it after you use it in salty environments, it will take care of you when fishing. Good drag and smooth retrieve. I would purchase another. Have used in freshwater burning spinner baits, bouncing the bottom for flounder, jigging gotcha plugs and spoons for blues and spanish, trolling spoons on a kayak in the ocean….it really is versatile for me and have been very happy with it.
