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 version of the revered Abu Garcia C4 round baitcasting 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.
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed 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. June 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smoothest Round Reel 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 ! April 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable Quallity 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. March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

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.

Staff Answer
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!
