Rated 4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Its Ok I bought this reel looking for a more inexpensive baitcasting option for catfishing. I got the largest size (its important to note as I see this a lot the largest sized abu garcia round reels have the bait clicker and only the largest) and with 30 pound braid it casted just fine never had an issue. The clutch engaged and disengaged just fine even uner loads and many decent sized fish where landed. For the cost its not a bad reel at all and if you want your first bait caster this could be an option. Pair it with a catfish rod med/hev ugly stick and your in buisness for big cats. However, the bait clicker design is much different then the c3 and c4 and uses a tiny spring so the first night out it broke. I picked up a few of the springs off ebay for almost nothing and went through a few bags before I took it back and upgraded to the C3. You should never cast with a clicker on as it wont cast well at all because of the resistence and you dont need to reel in with it either as its just waring out parts but to have it brake with a fish running? thats just crazy. And to have it brake a few times over the course of a month was just not cool with me. Also, the drag is not the carbon fiber drag that is used in the c3 and up reels and although you can find aftermarket parts for this to upgrade it you really want that carbon drag with big cats. Not 6 pound big like 36 pound big. IF your using braid you really want a smooth drag since you losea lot of the flex that mono has. Overall, its a good reel with a good price point but has a bad bait clicker design and old technology in the drag. September 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing i hadnt been fishing in about 5-7 yrs, me and my girlfriend were at bass pro shops visiting for the first time, i had asked the fishing consultants there which reel that has a line guide that will go back and forth when you cast, the lady pointed out to me abu garcia, my girlfriend bought me one and i picked out the rod, first time out with a lure and light as a 1/4 oz, i was able to cast into the wind and still reach at least 30 feet out, thats very impressive for a bait caster and going into the wind, and i mean wind like its making white caps on the water. i definitely will be getting more of these reels and have committed reels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Good Get a higher level reel. Second trip out started making noises and the protector on the thumb bar fell off. Also no clicker for soaking mullet. June 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fish on! Put two of these on a couple of Ugly Sticks and use them for stripers and cats. Very smooth and easy to operate. A very strong reel that handles big fish without breaking the bank. April 15, 2014

Hello,
We began carrying this item in the fall 2013, so it would not be considered a 2014 model.

Thank You
