Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® Record™ is rated out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gordon Fish from The Record for Record Fish! I've had this reel 10 years now and it still delivers like it's brand new! Easy to maintain and casts very smooth! I own 7 Abu Garcia reels and every single one casts beautifully. And granted, the Record is the newest being 10 years old. The Record and the 6600 C4 are my go to reels. I don't buy anything other than Abu Garcia reels because they're reliable, dependable, indestructible and easy to disassemble. (For me anyway lol) Jeep making solid reels and I'll keep supporting! Abu Garcia For Life!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mauri from Hi there from Argentina Hi. I own this Record 6600 HC since a year ago. I´m from Argentina and use to fish at Parana river our Dorados and Surubí. I have others Abu reels (amb 6500, Revo sx, 7000 ic3, Revo toro NACL) but Record is now mu favourite. Use it on a Fenwick Elitetech Muskie rod with 25 lb test multi and it feels perfectly balanced. The reel is very smooth for casting every lure.and can handle also heavy live baits. I fishes Dorados of more than 20 lb as you can see in these pictures. Congratulations to Abu for this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by jtrahan82 from Great Drag and Smooth Casting I won this reel as a door prize in a fishing tournament. I have it spooled with 17 lb mono and reel holds a good capacity of this size line. Reel handles the tough conditions here in south Louisiana from 30+ inch redfish, sheepshead, 20+ lbs black drum, speckled trout, 10+lbs blue catfish, 20+ lbs flathead catfish and all the down to 2-3 lbs bass. I love this reel and it's my arsenal of tackle every fishing trip! I love the transition the reel can make from handling big saltwater fish to precise smooth casting or pitching for freshwater. I own several other Abu Garcia reels and wouldn't trade them for anything !

Rated 5 out of 5 by William from Swedish made tank Bought the 6600 record for big swimbaits and big pike/muskie baits. I am so used to low profile baitcasters I was a little hesitant to buy a round reel. I am so glad I bought the record! Amazing casting distance, I can cast a big double jointed swimbait into oblivion. Also whether you are fighting a fish or just working your lure, you can feel the quality. It has a rock solid build and exceptionally smooth feel to it. The drag is very stout but also very smooth. Caught this pike on my Record 6600 fishing with my son from shore. I am definitely going to add another Record soon to go with all my gen2 and gen 3 Revos. Great job Abu Garcia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mikeg1410 from Best Abu reel made. I've owned many Abu reels (mostly C3's and C4's) and many other high-end reels from other manufacturers. The Record series out performs them all. I've never seen a reel cast as far with as little effortless until this reel. I am going to switch all my reels to the Record. I only wish the 5600 had a little more line capacity. I have an older 40 series and 50 series. These reels out perform brand new reels that cost several times as much. I've always like the Abu round reels because of their versatility. You can use them for everything from bass to musky. The Record series is no exception and it made a believer out of me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iyekim76 from Dependability, Durability with Design Received this Abu Garcia RCN60HC Record as a gift a few years back and can not say how amazed I am by the reels functionality. She fishes tidal waters all the way up to rapids settings and will never leave home without her as it is my "Go-To" reel. Ill suggest this reel any day to any serious angler who believes in dependability, durability and design. A great reel to have in your bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpamEggsandRice from NO BELLS AND WHISTLES, JUST A SOLID PERFORMER I've always had an Abu reel in my arsenal. They don't have the bells and whistles like the other high-end reels out there, but they perform and last a lifetime. Very easy to disassemble for maintenance. Out of the box the reel casts and retreives very smoothly. The drag is very consistant when you have a big fish on. I upgraded the bearing to ceramic due to the fact that I use this in salt water sometimes. I hooked a 21lb. Striper and with the lower gear ratio it had no problem winching it in. For a reel in the $199 price range, you are getting a great performing, reliable, solid design that has been proven throughout the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outdoorguy from My first Abu Garcia My record 60 was my first expensive reel as i normaly used the walmart specials. What a difference. Matched with a stiff rod, this reel sings everytime it is cast. This is a great catfish rig. My only complaint with it is the line out alarm switch being made of plastic. For the money it should have been made of metal. I have been using it for about 3 years now and still no problems yet (knock on wood). I plan to buy the Abu Garcia CS Pro Rocket and match it with a St. Croix Musky rod to use for big cats and some saltwater trips i am planning. Hopefully the CS Pro performs as well as the Record 60. Abu Garcia is a trusted brand in my home so far.
