I have purchased many reels in my lifetime and while I have used the ambassador reels for bass fishing I had never owned the larger ones for bigger game. I am pleased to say I wasn't disappointed with this purchase. My ambassador 7000 big game is now my new favorite weapon for landing spoonbill and large flat head catfish. I recently broke the 100 lb mark with my recent trophy spoonbill. The reel had plenty of back bone to land this catch of a lifetime and I would recommend it to anyone that needs a serious reel for serious fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishhunter77steven typical Abu Garcia- Great!
I am using the 10,000I Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Big
Game reel for surf fishing. Like all the other products from Abu Garcia, that I own, it is well engineered and works great. The spool tensioner
is wonderfully adjustable and the star wheel drag
is up to the task. Many surf casting fishermen use
a reel without level wind but the 10,000I does a great
job of distance casting with the ease of retrieval of
a level wind reel. My friends kid me about the plain
black reel color. I tell them that the color of the reel has nothing to do with catching fish, besides the reel
is in "stealth mode".

Rated 4 out of 5 Where did the CT go?
I bought the BG9000CT 5 years ago for surf fishing and it is still going strong to this day. the drags just recently wore out and i replaced them with carbontex drag washers. I run straight 30lb mono or , as i have it set up right now, 200yrds of 50lb braid backing and 120-140yrds of 30lb mono top shot. great free spool that abu is known for and enough line capacity for big game surf fishing. the only complaint i have is the clicker could be a little louder and the sprocket that makes the sound could be a bit stiffer to hold against the waves.
also, WHERE DID THE CT GO!? a level wind in the surf turns into a disaster when sand gets in the worm gear. if Abu still made the non level wind model id buy another 9000 and a 10000 is a heart beat! the CT i give a 5 out of 5, but only 4 stars for the review due to lack of a non level wind.

I would've easily given this reel 5 stars if not for this one issue. I own several Abu Garcia reels. They are some of the most reliable and sturdy reels I've ever used. I recently purchased this 7000i HSN because of AG's reputation and my history with their products.
When I started spooling this reel with 20# mono, I noticed the line was spooling unevenly from right to left. I filled the spool and figured after a few casts the line would eventually even out across the spool. But, it did not, after examining the line guide's travel closely, it appears that the line guide is not traveling far enough to the left side of the spool, causing the line to lay unevenly and pile on the right side, I believe the problem is caused by the worm gear itself. I would like Abu to adjust or replace the necessary parts to correct this. Aside from this issue, I'm pleased with the smoothness and casting that one would expect from the AG reels. I am posting this review not intending to bash Abu But to state my lack of confidence in THIS particular reel, at this time. My other AG reels have been flawless for YEARS. I believe this is an easy fix. I would like to hear from them on this matter.
