Product Reviews

Abu Garcia C3 Catfish Special Round is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! What a Great Reel I live in Clarksville Virginia, the home of the 144 pound world record blue cat. Over the last few years I have had other types of reels. They have even broken at the gears near the spool. I regularly catch 30 to 50 pound blue cats on a regular basis. I had a couple of old Abu Garcia reels that I have used for years in salt water. Even though they are old I have depended on them and no problems. About a month ago I bought 2 C3 7000 catfish specials. Their performance is outstanding. I usually drift fish with 6 rods at a time. I plan to get 2 more catfish specials in the near future, that way I will have only Abu Garcia reels on my boat. Thanks for a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Catfish Reel!!! This reel is absolutely the best catfishing reel I have ever used! I bought it a few weeks ago, spooled it up with some Power Pro 50# braid, put it on a Pro Angler Med Heavy 8' rod and, headed for the river. It casts like a rocket and reels in butter smooth! I especially like the extra large cranking handle. The carbon drag system will definitely put the brakes on a big ol' whisker kitty! I would highly recommend this reel to everyone from a beginner to a seasoned pro, whether you are fishing the shallows for channel cats, drift fishing big blues or, hunting down some big ol' flat heads this is by far the reel I would recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm hooked! Being a novice baitcaster I did some research and found that the 6500C3 was a high quality reel (so I bought a used one) and liked it. I wanted to add some arsenal to my tackle so I purchased the Abu Garcia 6500C3 Catfish Special about two weeks ago and I've been eager to take it out. So tonight I finally got a chance to use the catfish special with the power handle, despite the water being up about 15 feet on the Ohio River. Took some tweaking with the added weights and slip bobber but after a few rounds I had the cast down. Reeled in my first Blue Cat like a champ. I couldn't be more happy with the purchase. A tad bit expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for. I look forward to adding a couple more Catfish Specials to my tackle in the future! #Abu4Life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection From looks to performance this reel is amazing! Currently saving up for another one! I paired it up with my okuma battle cat rod and love the entire set up, there's not a catfish that this thing won't haul in! Did I mention it looks amazing haha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth as silk I purchased this about 2 weeks ago, and I am very, very, very pleased with this catfish 7000 reel, worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice, great quality My application for this reel is a little different. I paired it with a 7' custom rod and use it for a flipping stick/shiner rod. The reel cast smooth and has the power to drag large bass from heavy cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance at the best! I bought the C3 Catfish Special 2 weeks ago, went out and caught a 9.1 lb channel cat. Good size for Montana. I've never had a feel perform so well. It was almost easy. I'll be buying another soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome reel Abu Garcia as always excellent reel . Paired it with a whisker seeker rod from whisker seeker tackle. Cant ask for a better combo for the 6500 c3 catfish special. 10 stars Abu Garcia.
