Rated 5 out of 5 by from Muskie Slayer I have 3 of these reels, I paid alot more than $99 though must have been when the Canadian $$ was in the tank. Either way this really is the best reel I have ever used for a baitcaster, I do use all Abu reels like the Cardinal and Ammbassadeur for Bass and Walleye fishing also have held up more than any other I have purchased. Last fall I caught by biggest Muskie so far on the C4 left handed model 6601, a 49" while throwing a Cowgirl. The only thing I could see for making this better would be a larger handle, but then again that's a minor thing. Long story short this is really a great product and worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless My dad bought two 6600C4 reels for our shad fishing setups. They are mounted on a 8 1/2 ft Ugly Stick Lite pole. These reels work flawlessly and are very smooth. After unexpectedly hauling in a 4 foot sturgeon while shad fishing I knew this reel was stout. Now I use it for steelhead also. The star wheel drag is easy to use and adjust with a fish on. Most people around us bounce back to where they want it but we just cast back. These reels make it easy to cast and adjust to avoid backlash. Overall I'd say the 6600c4 is a great,bordering on perfect reel. I have never touched mine and it still looks and more importantly works like new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by addictedtofishing1001 from The Best Reel I've owned! This is the best reel I have ever used, I bought it with the intention of using it as an everything rod so to speak, yesterday I was flounder fishing and ended up with three sharks hitting my minnow, i had 17 pound test on, and when he hit I let him run because I always like a good fight, but every time my Abu brought them in all of them pushing 6 foot each, the most powerful reel I've ever used!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wesson44 from Great Reel Borrowed one of these last year on a fishing trip up North ( Maine Canada border ) . Loved how it performed and CASTED!!! Bag limit on salmon and decided to stop off to a lake we passed in N.H. and did some bass fishing with it. Very impressed, just bought 6601 and threw it on med/heavy fast VERITAS. So glad I live min away from BPS. Again when fishing the local lake by my house ( bass, pickerel ) this reel can cast 80 feet with min effort and the retrieve is smooth. You can feel the quality and craftsmanship in this reel, being in the manufacturing industry I can appreciate that. If you consider yourself a true angler you need at lease one of the AMBASSADEUR round reels in you arsenal. This is the fifth Abu Garcia reel I have purchased in the past two and a half years and they truly have my business for life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frankie Bones from not impressed Own a c4 from 2001 that has endured brutal saltwater and freshwater fishing trips with no issues (sand in reel washed out by submerging in saltwater and shaking). I spooled my 2014 c4 with superline and water picked up by the superline somehow FILLS the inside of this reel resulting in a complete teardown for cleaning after half a day of fishing, water also causes the clutch arm to stick when casting (cant reel line back in). I have never been more disappointed in abu garcia quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrisran99 from Great Reel for big fish! I bought a 5600 for a bull red trip to Grand Isle fishing off the beach on Elmer's Island. I spooled it with 12# big game on a 8.5 foot Lightning rod and pulled in several reds over 38 inches. Now I have in on a Ugly Stik Intercoastal and use it for big cats in lakes and rivers to most anything that will bite along the gulf coast, but the biggest test I put it on was when we were drawn for alligator tags in the Pearl River. With 30# braid we pulled In a 10 foot gator. I have several set ups for fresh or saltwater that I use for specific species but this is the one reel that goes everywhere and can do it all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kamloops Salmon from Junk I bought this reel a month ago. The gears started making noise after 2 days of casting and one 6 lb fish. The noise got louder with every cast eventually stripping the drive gear on the second weekend. I had to buy my own replacement gears so I could fish the last weekend of the season. The second gear set starred to get noisy after two hours of fishing and they are binding. I regret wasting now $250 with the line reel and second gear set and shipping.
