Product Reviews

Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® Blue Yonder is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping the faith I've been using a BY for about 20 years for casting and surf fishing. It casts a country mile, actually measured at 424'. I've maintained it myself, which is made so easy by the excellent design, including adding a mag brake. Now it's in need of replacement parts, which it will get. But, having gained so much pleasure from the reel for so long, I've decided to buy a 2015 model. I can't wait to get my hands on it and add it to my 'stable' of Abu Garcia Ambassadeurs..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just another run of the mill with a nice handle Bought this in the fall of 2014 and have fished it on the NC obx. The reel did fine and I like the high speed retrieve for when casting way out there. For the price of this reel it should come with a one piece Al frame and the ar-dog for which there is a post. I have had issues with my 6500s ar-bearing slipping so this ar-dog is a must. The frame is a standard CT frame with a paint coat on it. The new spool color is nice though. Really can't stand the lack of concise control with the mag brake assembly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect blend of distance and control I ordered this reel about a month ago to use primarily for drum. I spooled it with 40lb spider wire invisibraid and it can really reach out. Before this, I used Penn 525s, and while very effective, they were very prone to backlashing. This reel has enough balance that it cast itself, and the mag breaking system is simple and really helps during big fights. This reel is attractive and a testament to Abu Garcia quality, so much so that I bought a BY 7000 as well that I look forward to trying. Abu Garcia's slogan is "For Life" and that is demonstrated in their Ambassadeur line and especially in the Blue Yonder series of reels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A must have great all around reel! I picked up the 6500 this year for 2 things. 1) Inland sturgeon in the California Delta 2) Surf fishing the coast of Northern California. This is an all around monster of a reel. The casting is so fluid and smooth I will have no problem launching my rigs past the breaks on the Pacific shore. For sturgeon, this means I can place my bait where I want when I want, with or without a boat. Thank you all at Abu Garcia for once again producing another lifelong fishing companion for me with the Ambassadeur Blue Yonder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can cast a mile with this with no backlash! Using a conventual in the surf was easy with the blue yonder. You can adjust the settings for allowing the spool to slow once your bait or lure hits the water. Since using this reel I have had no backlash at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoothing casting I got on from my granda pa and he didn't like it very much so I gave it to me and I literally use it all the time is so smooth when you cast it and the reel just feels nice in my hands and reeling it in is probably my favorite cause it literally feels like nothing and not to mention the blue color is absolute awesome
