Built on the rock-solid fundamentals that have made this series so popular, the new C4 focuses on improved casting performance, while still maintaining the same durability and dependability that has made it legendary. This Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® C4 Classic Round Baitcast Reel retains its proven, bulletproof power and performance—and incorporates carefully considered touches that make it stronger, lighter, more efficient, and smoother. The benefits of this model include a 25% lighter spool design, a 65% lighter aluminum line guide, a bent star and handle for more efficient retrieves and more manageable fish fights. The Duragear 2 brass gearing adds even more durability to a reel that is already virtually indestructible, and the ever popular 6.4:1 gear ratio, linked to the more efficient bent handle and drag star, lets you muscle in the biggest scaly warriors. Appropriate for a huge variety of gamefish, including bass, striper, catfish, walleye, pike, muskie, lake trout, salmon, snook, redfish, and more.

favorite round baitcaster great reel compared to shimano cardiff both around the same price, the c4 cast smoother and further when it comes to retrieving line the shimano is smoother but not by much, another plus of the c4 is the metal line guide its not plastic like a lot of other reels, i also want to mention the drag is very smooth, i love that they have a bent handle and star drag it makes it a much more ergonomic reel, i have the reel paired with shimano salmon rod but as soon as abu garcia produces salmon rods i will be one of the first to purchasing the rod they make great products at great prices December 2, 2013
Super reel! When I first got this reel it felt solid right out of the box. Great casting and retrieving, solid heavy reel! Holds lots of line, everything I was looking in a striper reel! Then I caught my first striper! The retrieve was hard, like the spool was rubbing on the frame, long story short I installed a power handle and that made a world of good! No more hard retrieve! The ease of maintenance is great, simple reel that actually works! Can't go wrong with the C4! January 21, 2015
Great reel! When i first got this reel, I was happy! It would cast really well, the retrieve was smooth, held a lot of line, just a good solid reel! Then I caught my first striper with the reel! The retrieve was hard, like the spool was rubbing on the frame, long story short, I added a power handle and it made a world of good! This reel is easy take apart and maintain. Just a great reel!

Great Reel for Catfish I bought the C4 6600 on the recommendation of a noted catfish guide here in North Texas. It holds lots of line, is easy to cast right out of the box and has a nice gear ratio for both channel's and the blue's and flathead's world. It is tough as nails for pulling up the big fish, but works well on the little 3lbs. I am real happy with it. My first love will always be Saltwater but living in North Texas my bread and butter fish are catfish and I enjoy everything this reel has to offer. December 18, 2014

A: 
First thing is pick a heavy bait for your rod. You want to make sure your rod loads up properly. I started off by casting sinkers. If you don't match your bait to rod you will get backlashes all day.

Next turn all the breaks off and set the mechanical adj knob. The bait should barely drop when the spool is released. This is key to stopping the spool when the bait hits the water. You should stop the spool with your thumb before it hits the water.

Once the mechanical knob is set, Set the mechanical breaks. I would turn them all on to start. The breaks slow the spool at top speed and more is better when you are learning. You can turn them off one at time when you start getting comfortable.

How you cast is very important. Start off with a lob cast. Throw the bait on a rainbow arch this will insure the line comes off the real smoothly.

Line choice. Use a mono backing for all but 75 to 100 yards of line any size will do. I would choose a cheap Mono main line 15 to 20lb test for the main line. Spool the line so there is some spool showing on both sides 1/8inch. Anything less and you will back lash. Thicker line is easier to cast and will backlash less. Backlashes are easier to take out with thicker line. Fluorocarbon and braid are expensive and you will back lash often when you start. By lots of line in all sizes and get use to changing your line out.

Backlashes: There is a good trick for getting backlashes out I learned from youtube and it works 85% of time. When you have a backlash that wont pull out from gentle pulling, 1st Tighten down your drag then place your thumb on the spool with good pressure and turn the handle a couple times. The spool will turn under thumb and help untangle the birds nest. Finally gently pull the line out. Rinse and repeat as necessary. I use this trick all the time it really works.

Finally stick with it. Bait-casters are much more fun to use.

A: 
Centrifugal brakes: Tiny, sliding weights mounted around the axis point of the spool are forced to the outside perimeter of the spool during the cast. The weight adds more mass to the perimeter of the spool, causing the spool to rotate more slowly during the cast. These weights can be locked into place at their axis point so they do not engage during the cast or they can be unlocked so they slide towards the outside of the spool during the cast, engaging the braking system. The centrifugal brake is a fantastic secondary braking system. Like a magnetic brake, it allows you to make incremental changes to the primary brake setting made with the tension brake. This will give you a wider range of braking adjustments which will assist in providing longer and more accurate casts than can be achieved with the tension brake alone.

A: 
Hi scotty, ignore the "staff member" that replied as per the abu website, no... Anyone who knows anything about abu round reels knows ALL 6000 series and up (the wide spool models) have bait alarms. The site does not list it but go ahead and download the schematic for the 6600C4 or the 6500C3. They both have them.

Brake access!

Details: 
Those this new version of the C4 have the same access to the brakes as the older model? I see on the picture that it doesn't have the nerld bolts on the side! So do you need a screw driver to remove the cover to set the brakes! On the water, that would be a bit of a pain! The old way was way easier than this one looks like! No screwdriver needed! I still believe that this new version is just as good, if not better, than the old one!
