Rated 4 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super gear 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. June 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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". June 22, 2012
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Worm Gear 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. December 31, 2011

A: 
I would say if youre gonna surf cast you can use the Abu Garcia 7000iC3 it can handle 600+ yards of 30lbs braid. With an 8'6" casting rod and 3oz. of weight, I can get over a 110yard cast! Almost any baitcaster will do. But the Abu Garcia is all aluminum and stainless steel. no graphite that can twist and bind and especially no plastic. I have just started using this reel and the first weekend I got this reel I caught over 20 fluke, and 4 to 5 nice blues over 20 lbs and this reel is a WINCH! Pulled that fish like it was 2 lbs. And this reel has a centrifugal brake with minimizes backlash to almost non existent!

specs say 20lb. But I know if you tighten up the spool pressure button it should raise it up from that.

A: 
I prefer a 10-12 foot lamiglass rod with Fuji eyes and reel seat. However your rod choice may be vastly different depending on what you are fishing for. You will want a rod that is capable of handling 8 oz weight and up to 30 lb line.

A: 
On my current set up for boat fishing I have mine mated to a Shimano TRD Trolling rod with plenty of fighting power and have landed 30 lbs fish no issues. When fishing from the surf I use a 10'6" surf rod I forget the manufacturer and with 2oz weight for light surf I can get about a 350'+ cast!
