I used this real for the first year fishing island calicos and the occasional sea bass or bonita. The reel held up well no complaints has amazing casting when spooled with spectra. The kicker was taking it on a October 2 day trip out of PT. Loma and having it spooled with 40lb izor spectra topshoted with 15lb Izor. The reel was intended to never be used seeming we were on a trip looking for tuna. 20 lb was getting bit but wasn't consistent so I matched the Record 60 up with a seeker black steel 7Ft 25(30)35 and pinned a sardine on casted off the bow and nearly instantly was connected. The drag was no problem and 15 mins later a beautiful 30lb Jackpot winning blue fin hit the deck. All in all the reel slayed 5 fish back to back no issues before the bite shut off. This reel did more than I could ever expect. Its the only Abu I fish and most likely will stay in my bag of tricks for a long time. This reel is nearly two years old no issues yet.

Have owned 4 a few years and intermittenly fished with the record on one pole and a competitors reel on another. After approximately 160 hours of usage the record is now allowing the crank to spin in reverse and the line to unspool after retrieveing . If this reel is an indication of the c3 I had before.. it too will continue to lose more functions with time. I am real disappointed with it and the other abu Garcia reel I used to own...in the records defense..I payed less for it than my other brand reels but, the abu garcia rep talked me into the record after my c3 failed from minimal usage. I would be willing to try their REVO MGX if they are willing to make some sort of consolation other wise I will have to stick with the other brand which has been trouble free so far

I've had Ambassadeur Round reels for well over 20 years and when I saw the Record (RCN50# I bought one. I've used it for almost a year here in Florida for Large Mouth Bass, Red fish, and Surf Fishing with great success. As always after use I rinse and lubricate as per instructions, but while fishing this weekend I notice that every time I casted heard slight sound coming from the reel. After opening the reel and inspecting I noticed that both end spool bearings #5230# and the internal bearing #13472# were completely locked. No movement whatsoever! I was shocked since these are supposed to be HPCR bearings #high perfomance non corrosive#. I am SO DISSAPOINTED since I've been such a loyal fan of these reels. I think that the only reason it still funtions is that the oil that I maintain on the spool shaft serves as a bearing. I suggest that all of you who have these reels check these bearings for motion since you won't notice this unless you personally try to turn the inner raceway. I'll try to contact Abu Garcia to see if they do have an HPCR bearing for these reels. It still under warranty #13 days). Wish me luck! I still belive this reel has super potential just like my old Ambassadeurs, but with better parts.

I have always used a Abu Garcia Ambassadeur baitcaster reels for my Salmon and Steelhead fishing . But one day back in med 2007 I think it was, on a Salmon fishing trip in the bay, I got to used a new Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Record RCN 61 HC for my first time . Now it's the only reel that I use when fishing for Salmon in the bay and lower rivers . I use a much bigger reel over the bar and out in the ocean for Salmon . Need more fishing line in the ocean . My summer and winter Steelhead fishing is by a Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Record Series RCN51 on a Finwick Boron X 8' 6" rod . I like the Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Record Series reels so much that I now collect new unused Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Record reels as a hobby and as a investment .

I have the 60HC spooled with 50lb power pro. I've used it on rockfish to bass in the kelp. This reel has all the drag you need to control large fish, it casts 1/2oz and larger swimbaits like a dream and with the ability to pack on 275yds of braid you can fish the deep water fish and know you can pull them up. The only complaint I have and this goes for all the round baitcasters Abu Garcia makes, is the lack of weep holes in bottom of side plates to allow water to drain out. You have to shake the reel to remove water unless you have time to open it up. I drill holes in mine for this purpose. Abu engineers, take note of this.....
