I've owned three of the next size down. The 5600 series. Best baitcasters you can buy for the money! Does that model have a clicker? If it does, that would come in handy for someone who likes to fish for catfish!

I've outcasted high end shimanos like the Calais DC with that reel, only problem ive seen with them is the drag isnt super smooth in comparison, the line capacity more than makes up for that feature or lack there of. As was said baitclicker models are awesome for trolling cranks or catting from the shore. I highly recommend them.

Im not a huge baitcaster guy, but i have a few. The Abus last a long time and are quality reels, so i dont think you can go wrong with them....especially the clicker model, which is a great catfishing reel, if you are into that. a buddy of mine actually has two 6600 models on his catfishing rigs, he loves them that much.

I agree 100%....but once you buy one, you'll be eyeing the Record. I have two Abu Records and they're the bomb!

I have two of the ABU 6601CBs that Cabela's sells. I used them on my swimbait rods until I upgraded to Curados. Now they're just gathering dust, but they are LH retrieve. The reels, like all the ABUs I own, are solid and dependable. They have clickers, a good drag, and can hold lots of line. I think you'd like the 6600 C4s.

I just checked online and Cabelas has the 6600 CBs on sale for $80. They have 3 BB and 1 RB, which is the same as the C4s. Of course, Cabelas mentioned that the C4s come with a $15 mail-in rebate, so that might be the way to go, unless you want those beefy cut-brass gears.
