Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® C4 Round Reel is rated out of 5 by 270.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous 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 Anonymous 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 deepsky from Started my career I used paper route money to buy my first red C3 back in 1975, I had read bassmaster magazine, and was consumed by bass fishing, but had no casting reel, or rod. So, saving paper route money, I bought a C3, and a Fenwick pistol grip casting rod. I had to sit in the back yard for hours learning to cast that reel with a weight tied to 12lb test. Finally, mastered after narrowing backlash to less than 50%, I headed to the local fishing lakes that had rumors of bass. Casting spinner baits until my wrist ached yielded my first largemouth, and I have been hooked ever since. Whether casting or spinning reels, the name to know is Abu Garcia

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nail003 from Durable and Dependable! The c4 series with the carbon matrix drag is as much elegant as it is tough. I purchased a pair of c4's with great expectations and they have delivered. The carbon matrix drag system is smooth and not jerky like other brands. On 08-29-15 I landed a new Illinois state record flathead catfish using the c4 and never once worried if my reel was up to the task. Great reel Abu Garcia!!!

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 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Righty Bought Left Handed Reel I bought the left hand version #5601, since I'm right-handed, so I can simply cast with My right, as I would with a spinning rod/reel, and use My left hand for the retrieve. It's tough to find a high quality casting reel offering a left handed version, and ABU takes top honors with their superb round casting reels with left or right handed options. I've owned a few ABU reels prior to the recent purchase of My 5601, and one of those I bought during Summer of 1973. Availability of simple repair parts has kept all of My ABU reels in service to this day, though I only fish occasionally anymore, due to My advancing age. Many Thanks to ABU for crafting such fine and long-lasting fishing reels! ~DLK~

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.
