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.

Big fan of the ambassadeur series but purchased a new C4 and within 3 weeks of use the axle clip (unfortunaley its a plastic piece) sheered in half and the drag no longer has any stopping power. I have never had any issue w/ any of my ambassadeurs. I am going to exchange it for a new one and hope that was a fluke because before the incident I was very pleased with the overall performance of the reel. I will change my review if the next one holds up.

I've got my C4-6600 spooled with Stren 65# braid mounted on a Mojo Bass Swim Bait 7'9" rod 1-4oz lure weight. I'm slinging 3.5oz swim baits and they are a breeze to reel in fast to get the right swimming action with the 6.3:1 ratio.
I'm getting about 80 foot on the cast without a hint of a backlash. The 6 pin braking system is tuned perfect for my setup right out of the box.
The drag couldn't be any smoother and still be built by man. I think I like the C4-6600 better than my first edition Revo SX with it's 11 bearings.
I'm helping to keep the lights on at BP !

I bought the C4 5600, to match up with an inshore rod for bass and halibut fishing. Spooled it with 40# braid and 25# flouro top shot. Excellent casting with 5/8-1.5 oz swimbaits. The reel performs just like I knew it would since I have owned several of the older Abus, and always have been a fan. The higher speed is a plus also. I like the feel of the round reel better than the so called low profile, but that's a matter of taste. These have no external cast control, but the brakes are adjustable if you need them. Salt water use has never been a problem with these reels, just keep em clean and maintain them.

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
