Product Reviews

Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® Beast™ Round is rated 3.8333 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Same reel as the classic inshore I bought this reel a few weeks ago. I found that it is a classic inshore reel with a different side cover. The reel performs good but not worth 399.00 price tag. The brake makes lots of noise while casting. They should have put stainless steel gears inside for the price but the didn't. They also make the abu predator which is practically the same reel in the UK. Also the Abu Snakehead which is made in Korea. That one comes with stainless steel gears. So to its the strongest 6500 they have made is a little missleading.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from MAYBE A GOOD REEL, BUT $400??? PERHAPS THESE ARE GOOD, BUT THE LAST AMB "INSHORE" MODELS I BOUGHT WERE $125 OR LESS, NEW. SURE, THEY DO NOT HAVE ANTI-DISTORTION SPOOLS. IS THAT REALLY NEEDED WHEN THE DRAG IS MAXED AT 15lbs? FURTHER, THE INSHORES HAVE S/S GEARS - FAR TOUGHER THAN BRASS. ALSO, THE INSHORES HAVE MANY INTERNAL PARTS THAT ARE CHROMED FOR CORROSION RESISTANCE. SORRY ABU, SALTWATER FISH ARE MUCH TOUGHER THAN THEIR FRESHWATER BRETHREN. YOUR INSHORE MODELS ARE SUPERIOR TO THIS REEL AND WERE MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE. BRING 'EM BACK!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much noise when you casting. I bought this item and I don't know if mine came with a factory problem, or this model has the noise casting as normal. The fact is, my reel makes a lot of noise when I am casting, I am owner of 12 different models from Abu and anyone makes that casting noise. I am not recommend this model because of the casting noise.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was Disapointed Fished musky with this reel for three hours when I noticed the handle getting wobbly. Its the same construction as the old 6500's. Brass drive gear with a brass cap holding the handle on. I'm returning it for a REVO Beast 60HS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased early March for Muskie fishing. Its very smooth and able to cast a long ways with my heavy lures. Have a ambassador but this reel beats it hands down, love it. Now just have to catch my first Muskie for the season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Reel ever. I bought an Abu Garcia in 1975. I have caught, Strippers, Largemouth Bass, King and Spanish Mackerel, you name it, this reel has performed. Forty one years I have been catching fish with this reel and going. I fish a lot too.
