    These are the best reels

    I have had this particular type of reel for 20 plus years and not only is it a hoss of a reel for BIG GAME fish while using live bait, It is also one of the best casting reels I have ever used. It never lets me down. I can use it for both live bait for stripers and catfish and I can also hook a jerk bait or spinner bait to it and cast into the shallows. The engineering of this reel is top of the line allowing complete control while casting to prevent back lash while still having the ability to pin point a cast. The durable design also provides absolute toughness when fishing for big game fish and has the wench power to get them in the boat. These reel are easy to clean and operate. They are designed with the angler in mind being simple but durable. And if there is a problem with one of them usually the owner can fix it on the spot. My self I take all five of mine with me while fishing. and so far I have had no problems with them The best thing I like about this reel is that it comes in a left handed or right hand style. It can be clamped on any type of rod and deliver top performance in any case. Most of the guides that I know use Abu Garcia reels and combos and that is why I use them as well. Because the best fishermen I know use the best reels which are Abu Garcia. Keith Bounds

    6501 C3 Excellent equipment

    I own 2 6501 C3's, I've had them since around 1998. I bought them when I got into musky fishing and other reels didnt cut it. I had a Shakespere bait cast reel that locked up within a week of using it and shimano that just didnt handle the torque that musky baits put on a reel and the brake consistency wasn't very dependable. So I spent the money on the C3's and they are still working fine today with only simple maintenence of cleaning and oiling. Whether I'm fishing a jerk bait or bucktail my C3's are always up to the task. I also do alot of night musky fishing and it's nice knowing I have a dependable reel in my hands Great reel. I love mine.

    For Reel Performance

    Before a Family trip to Costa Rica, I purchased two of the 6500 C3's, loaded them with #16 green ANDE tournament mono and paired them each with 6 foot, 2 piece Ugly Stik GX2 medium action rods. Final outcome was watching myself as well as my 12 and 13 year old sons landing several Corvinas and Red Snappers in the 15 pound weight range. It was just the perfect fight to enjoy the catch but with a minimal stress to the reels, rods and line. Reels are light, tough, easy to use and easy to maintain. What a purchase !!!!!

    Abu Garcia & Berkley (Pure Fishing) Come Through AGAIN!

    Last week was a week of mixed blessings. Started the week with a funeral and just needed a "pick-me-up". On Wednesday, I spent the day over at the college and found that I had been awarded my degree and would be walking with honors at the commencement coming up in May. My week had just turned for the better!!! The week would end with a huge blessing, made possible by Abu Garcia. Friday morning, 16 March 2012, started like every day so far that week. Went through my usual routine and decided to wet a line for a bit before getting drawn into the hassles of the day. I grabbed one of my Abu Garcia spinning reels and headed across the street to the pond. In short order, I had caught 3 bass in the 1.25 to 1.5 pound range and a hand-sized bream. Got to the end of the pond and headed back to my starting point. I knew at this one point, there was a bed with a nice size bass on it. Unfortunately, I had never been able to get close enough to try and catch her or the male that is with her. This time, I slipped up behind a bush that was just North of the bed and on the bank... she was there and so was the buck. I started throwing my little diving bait but she wouldn't even acknowledge it. At this point, I decided to try a different technique/approach. I returned to the house and got my other AG spinner and my Ambassadeur 5500C3 loaded with Berkley ProLine 65# braid. Returning to the pond, I first tried to entice a strike with a earthworm colored plastic worm but to know avail so I switched to the spinner using a chartreuse-pepper worm but still no real interest on the ol' girl's part. At his point, I had been working this girl for nearly 20 minutes and was growing frustrated. I decided to rerig the 5500C3. I cut the hook and weight combination off of the braid and tied on a 5/16oz brown jighead with a green and brown skirt and hooked on a plastic brown-red-green craw. That got her attention real quick-like! In order to fish this bed, I had to flip the bait to the far side of the bed and pull it back through. The 5500C3 handled the job flawlessly! No backlash or over-runs occured as a result of the change in casting style and the drop was almost perfect on every flip! After about 10 minutes, I hit the sweet spot and she got aggressive then hit the bait! When I set the hook, you would've though a bomb had gone off. She exploded and had my rod bent so far over, I thought it would break if I tried to swing her over. The 5500C3's drag and brake system functioned without flaw or slip-up! I knew she was big but didn't realize it until she was on the bank and I had weighed and measured her... 22" and SIX POUNDS! This is why I will always be "ABU GARCIA FOR LIFE!" Get the 5500C3... for the money, you can't go wrong and you won't regret it!
