Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® 7000 Combo is rated out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Combo I bought the 8 foot combo for catfishing but when I received the rod and reel it felt so good I decided to use it for catching stripers. I spooled the reel with 50lb PowerPro braid and tied on a 9 inch Pencil Popper. The magnet and brake on this reel is spectacular. On the first cast I casted probably around 50 yards but within an hour I was casting 75-80 yards easily with almost a 2 ounce lure. The rod was performing great for the popping action and handled the 10 pound stripers I was catching flawlessly. This combo is definitely worth the money. I know this combo is easily capable of catching 80-90lb fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shadow from Excellent Catfish Combo I love this combo. The reel with it's drag system makes it easy to adjust drag as needed while reeling in the big catch. Smooth action, not the jerky almost like you have to reel before you actually start reeling. I also enjoy the lack of that clicking noise you get with some round reels. Although it looks salt water in nater it tends to work very well for both salt and fresh water, and is easy to maintain. I used the 6'6" Med Heavy Rod with this combo. This works well for me, and I'm certain it will work well for others who apreciate a solid well constructed Rod. Lightweight enough for crank baits, yet durable enough for the nice size Cat you're waiting to pull in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dan from MH MH means medium heavy of course. If you need a drift rod like me, this would not be the one. The rod is well made and all but should be used on large to very large fish, not steelhead or catfish, or stripers, as the rod has the sensitivity of a rake, hoe or shovel handle. I'm just sayin'. The shipping was 25 bucks from texas to nevada, that is steep because i buy and sell on ebay all of the time and it is about 12 bucks, standard shipping to send a rod. The company, shopatron just can't seem to find a retailer in my area unfortunately. I will sell the rod and find a better one for my purposes somewhere else. The ambassedeur 7000i of course is an excellent reel and is a pretty good deal with the combo, except for that shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Awesome Combo!! I got the 8ft Ambassedeur combo for fighting large river catfish. The rod in excellent quality and great finish. The 7000i reel is very heavy duty and built very well. The best part is that these rods/reels look as good as they perform. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miller from Everything about it Jus got my ambassadeur 7000 combo in the mail today! I read a lot of reviews about this combo before buying it and it sound like the perfect setup for me, but now I actually have it in my hands it couldn't be more perfect. I like everything about this set up and it feels so comfortable like it was custom made for me. I highly recommend this rod, great setup and very strong. Can't wait to hit the water with it! #AbuForLife

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laker from Dependable downrigger rod, Great reel for casting! 30 years ago I bought an Abu Garcia combo from an Ontario tackle distributor. The downrigger rod I use for light line and such species as Walleye and Lake Trout. The rod has never failed me! My reel, an Abu Garcia 7000 is fantastic. I have used it for both casting and trolling. The reel just keeps on going. I can heavy 4 ounce plus Musky lures a good country mile with no issues. The drag has always been smooth, no issues.
