Rated 4 out of 5 by Capt Greg from 99% flawless reel Absolutely love these reels. They are bulletproof yet smooth and compact as can be. Excellent for walleye and salmon fishing. Only problem I found with the reels is the material they use to make the drive shafts. My customers tend to pull on the handle as well as the rod when pumping back on a fish instead of just pulling back on the rod. After a lot of use the brass threads seam to strip a little and the handle starts to become loose and cannot be tightened. They are used a lot in my business. I own 16 of them and I think I still have the very first one I started using when they first came out. You will not be disappointed with these reels. If you're going to use them for both species, I suggest the larger of the 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAssers guide service from A solid work horse of a reel!! I have owned Abu Garcia reels for 30 years and when I heard they made a line counter I jumped at the idea. I have owned them from when they were first made and still use them. I fished 200 plus days a year in all weather conditions with almost flawless results. I just ordered 10 new ones for next season that proves I still have faith in them!! Tight lines!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stevester from Left Handed = Left Out! I own 9 Abu Garcia round reels in multiple configurations. One TGC 5001, two pro rocket 6501, one 7001 HS, and 6 C-3's. I love these reels and wouldn't dare trade them out. My only complaint: Why can't we get a left handed 5501 or 6501 Ambassadeur line counter. Please Abu, we lefties will buy them if you make them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scottywilkins from Compact line counter love it! My favorite small line counter on the market. I yet to have a single problem with the reel over the past year and the counter work's like new still. The casting is great could be better,but for a trolling reel it cast amazing and 180ft is no problem for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aroostook angler from Most reliable linecounter I bought this real specifically for salmon and lake trout and it has performed admirably without malfunction! I can get my bait down to the right debth with the counter and have no question about whether it's in the strike zone or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Release One from Perfect package This is my second purchase of Ambassador line counters, last season I put two on board loaded with 15 lb braid and on 6 ft Berkeley trolling rods. The whole set up worked perfectly as the counter allowed us to repeat the proper depths the fish were holding at on every pass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JobyC from Nice to have a 6500 with LC I buy new 6500 C3 each year. They are by far my favorite reel for the quality and price. This year I decided to give the new line counter model a try. So far so good, light weight and functional. My gear gets lots of use and I believe they are up for the challenge!
