Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® 7000 C Round is rated out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom The Fisherman from This thing is a fishing tool. I have used the Ambassadeur reels since I was 11 years old. I hunt big catfish, gar, bass, and carp in Texas. Look just cutting to the chase, its all about the DRAG. When you have to depend on steady drag that works with clock like precision this is the reel. This is a real fisherman reel. My dad bought him and me Ambassadeur back in the 70s. I have now given my son mine and my dad gave me his. How is that for durability? Dropped in the lake, dried chicken liver, dried fish slime, and banged around on rocks, boats, backs of trucks still works like new. Your line or bait may let you down, but it will not be this reel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from great reel for the first year This reel worked great for me for the first year or so. I fished in saltwater and fresh. Always cleaned it and lubed it when saltwater came in contact. First thing that happed my worm gear stripped out and then the internal parts gave out. Could not use the clicker, then the release stopped working without fiddling with it for a few moments. Then the retrieve stopped working. The reel became completely useless. The same thing happed with my kalex about a year after purchasing it. I recently purchased a record. This is my last straw with Abu Garcia. Let's hope it last much longer than one year. I now understand why there is only a one year warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from versatile for heavy fresh water or a "25 pound" saltwater reel My wonderful daughter bought this reel for fathers day some years ago and I have fished it from Alaska to Costa Rica. The 7000(C) is a beautiful dark royal blue enameled large handled bait caster that casts like a dream for plugging as well as a heavy jigging reel for grouper and other delicious bottom dwellers. I have caught salmon to 38 pounds; dog tooth snapper to 55 pounds and tarpon over 100 pounds with this reel. The drag is excellent. This reel has held up well over the years and in fact still looks almost like new. I have no experience with the "Big Game" edition but prefer this edition and am enjoying my daughters gift to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brt123 from The Best Reels In the History of Fishing!!! I bought this reel four mounths ago and I could not be happer! Its got a fast return and holds enough line to fight a Marlin! I caught a 63 lb Yellow cat the fist time I fished with this reel and it was no strain on it at all. It was if I had the boat winch on my rod instead of the Rell. I have fished with Abu Garica 500c,5500,6000 reelsmy whole life andthey havenever failed me! I still fish with rodsandthe abu garica reels that my Grandfarther and Farther bought new yearsago. This reel and all Abu Garcia reels are Generational Reels. For me these are three generations that have used thesereels and they are still catchingfish. You will always love Abu Garcia Reels because there is no substitute!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Strong Reel I have one of these and it is about 45 years old . With the dual side cast control and a clicker on it for live bait fishing. Even at 45 years old this reel works like it is brand new. . It has a wide spool so you can put some heavy pound line on it and also have enough line on the spool not to loose it all when you hook a BRUSER of a catfish that won't give up. I have had up to 125 yards of line spooled off from a 45 pound catfish and the reel was able to handle it with no problem. If you are looking for a reel that will actually handle BIG game fish this is the one to get. I will buy another when this one wears out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent Performance!!! I purchased my 7000i from Ronnie & Hellen's Muskie Shop less than a year ago. My reel is mounted on a 12' Ugly Stick Bigwater heavy action rod, this combination is by far the best investment I have ever bought. The spool is only filled with 65 lb Cortland Master braid, just for those smaller fish. The reel has out performed certain "Higher Quality" reels my dad has bought over the years. I have never been happier with my reel or rod combination except when I opened the package on my doorstep. I have caught everything from small bluegill to a couple 75 lb flatheads on the Ohio River. My 7000i is an absolute attention getter and people always ask me why I need something that big, I always smile and reply, "Because Warn winches are overkill."

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Exceeded my expectations I purchased this reel for flathead fishing in Iowa, and once a year the family and I go fishing off the shore of Siesta Key Beach in Florida. The reel casts very nice off the shore. The first big catch was a 100lbs black tip shark. It took no time at all to reel in with the nice drag system of this reel, I had approx. 280yrds of 80lbs powerpro. I was afraid of the shark possibly spooling me, so I set the drag and brought him in quick! I am now thinking of a 10000i just for more line capacity. Very pleased with this reel, amazing Fresh/Salt water reel!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Griffer from My first baitcasting reel My first baitcasting reel was the Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 7000 C. I was nervous about getting one as a few years back I tried using a friends baitcaster(another brand) and spent more time clearing "birds nests" than fishing! Another friend suggested I get the 7000 as a first reel and said if it did not work for me he would give me the money I paid for it. Well, within 15 minutes of starting to use the new reel I realized I would never get that money, and didn't care!! I found it so enjoyable it became my favorite reel by the end of the day. I felt proud of myself that I learned to use it and soon found that beside it's smooth operation and great gear ratio my aim became better!! I now watch the pros and feel more connected to them and that I can do what they do!! My fishing experience is more enjoyable and fun!!
