Just got this reel in the mail and I was very excited at first glance. Very good looking and smooth reel, but then I noticed the obnoxious amount of backplay the handle has. I'm not sure if I just got a defective one or what.
Awesome just and awesome reels all around!! At a great price!!!
I now own 4 of this reels and love all of them. Super easy to adjust and fine tune. This thing take a beating too, i have one on my frog rod and I've put it through a beating and back. Still as smooth as when i got it.
Bought the reel a couple weeks ago and have only used it once but already can tell it's my favorite of my revos so far!
I have 3 ABU Reels, But this is my favorie, I handles Cobia which is my test of a good reel, I fish NC Offshore waters and own 36 Outfits, I Hesitated to buy this reel because of the affordable price, but boy was I surprised, don't hesitate to buy, I spooled mine with 20lb mono and I would fell comfortable fighting any saltwater fish I know of, 50 yrs on the water and I Love this reel.
I have four of these reels, primarily bought for freshwater striper fishing and inshore saltwater. These are great reels for the purpose, casting, trolling or live bait fishing. The casting brake is a big benefit and is very sensitive. I will absolutely buy more of these when necessary! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have been useing c3 c4 and record reels for over 30 years. They are great durable and depedable reels . Very well built and the best part for me is the line guide moving when you cast, you get better and longer casts and better line lay. They work great with either mono or braid. And the 4601 is a great crank bait reel the perfect gear ratio for crankbaits and slow rolling spinnerbaits. I use them for bass, pike, catfish , muskie and have never had a problem with them. I tried a revo sx and ... didn't like it at all its going on craigs list can cast just as far with my c3 4601 or my c4 4601 and 5601.
I got my first 5500C in 1977 for my 15th birthday, and it still works perfect. With my recent purchase, I now own 11 of these reels.(I take care of my reels and they take care of me.) Best round reel money can buy !!!
These reels are smooth casting and easily adjusted. The new cast controls on the Gen 3 reels makes these the easiest reels to fine tune without magnetic cast controls.
This reel is nothing short of great. Casting is smooth and and it casts a mile. When in need I would buy another one.
accidentally lost rod/reel in lake- retrieved it after 2 days on the bottom and it still works like a boss. It did need a little cleaning and grease though. Caught my all time best largemouth (8lbs) on it last summer too. Tried and true reels, my dad still uses two ambassadeurs that are over 40 years old and doesn't miss a beat. You can't go wrong with an ambassadeur!
All my bait caster reels are Abu Garcia rounds reels. My favorite is my C4-4600. features a smooth drag and very durable reels. The C4 gear ratio is the perfect all around ratio for many presentations. Basic maintenance is easy and will allow your reel to last a life time. Another bonus is you can get the reels with a a left side handle.
I use it like a Crappie Reel. Flawless preferences. Weights heaver but can be handled. I like it, cheap and well made. It helped me catch these! See ya in the Creeks!
Abu Garcia period is the best reels I've ever used won't own anything else
I bought four of these reels over a couple year span in the late 90's. These are by far the only reels that have stood the test of time! I use them for tight-lining for crappie, white bass, sauger, but mainly for catfish. I have landed several over 20 lbs and a couple in the 50 lb range. Thanks so much for producing such great reels! sincerely, Trae Miller [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Purchased several weeks ago and glad I did. I have purchased an arsenal of bait casters (28) since I returned to fishing in the past five years, all in the mid range price catagory and this one tops them all. Easiest to set up and the absolute best caster of all. I have not had one over-run, even casting into the wind. It is very smooth and quite. This is the first bait casting reel I have that I was able to cast 1/8 oz lures a great distance, unbelievable. This is a great reel, you need to ... purchase this one and experience the difference. OBTW, this is my 8th Lew's and they are all good.
I love this reel plan on getting some more of them.
This reel is the backbone of the Penn all purpose saltwater line in my opinion. Quality build, easy to service and repair. Smooth drag and indestructible. Have had mine, (2 of them), for over 15 years and are still as reliable today as the day I bought them. Use them for trolling, kingfish, dolphin, sailfish and grouper as well as conventional bottom fishing for grouper, black bass, grunts, snappers and the "reef donkey" amberjacks. Highly recommend these reels if you want a reliable, all ... purpose reel that you can depend on for years to come. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have many Penn conventional reels, 1 x 149, 1 x 155, 1 x 285, 1 x 350, 1 x 309M, 1 x 500, 2 x 60, 2 x 65, 2 x 66, 3 x 67, 7 x 68, 1 x 112H, 1 x 113H, 2 x 113HLW, 7 X 114H, 2 x 115L. The lighter ones, from 155 to 113H, are easy casting (with 30# to 50# mono) from pier, shore, etc. yet they are very strong against fish up to 150# range. Thanks to the low gear ratio, like the 5-ton truck transmission, you can slowly winch in the big fish with these small reels. The heavier 114H and 115L ... are very versatile, with the new braided lines, you can spool from 800 to 1300 yards of 100 lb Spectra braids. I have used the 114H to bring in fish from 10 lb to 450 lb, and have used the 68 for 2 lb to 150 lb fish. That was why I have 7 of each, the true American workhorses that last for very long time, if you maintain them properly. The reason I only give 4 stars is the weaker drag force designed for these Penn reels.
After handling many reels on display at various retailers, I stumbled across this little beauty. I had overlooked it in the past, simply because of the lower bearing count. I was hooked as soon as I picked it up and tried it. I purchased the 1500 version about a month ago and have used it MANY times since on a 6' medium action rod. Spooled with 8lb Power Pro braid, it has been smooth, light and reliable. I can't reccomend it enough!
This is my second exceler. I caught some real nice fish on my first . It is very durable,
Bought this reel a few weeks ago and put it on a 3' ice fishing rod for my daughter who is 2 1/2. Very pleased with this reel, casts smooth, light weight and easy to use. She loves it.
I have had all different kinds of baitcasting reels, this is by far the best. Smooth, tough, and casts further than any other of my reels, which some of the we're twice the money! Best value would recommend.
Bought this Reel and never looked back. Bail flips smooth and no back up, when you stop. As good as I have ever owned, and I have had them all. Love the Max 4 Camo - and on the right rod - it's a killer.
This reel is a tough versatile reel. I use it fishing in salt water to cast soft plastics for Speckled Trout. It casts and retrieves smoothly. It has enough backbone to deal with those Trout. I suggest that the red Cajun line be replaced with a better quality line for salt water use. This reel will perform very well in fresh water as well. Overall, it's a great reel for the money.
I bought this reel about a year ago & it has been great!!! It is a very smooth reel for pond/small lake fishing. Fun to catch brim & bass...
I have been fishing for over 50 years and I own a lot of expensive reels . The Shimano C14+ is one of the best and smoothest reels I have ever used . I have the 2500 series and I use it for crappie on light weight rods and crank baits on med to heavy rods for bass fishing . I love it . Buy one you wont be disappointed !!
Another well engineered Shimano reel. Great for catching bass either small mouth or large mouth. Excellent line wind with minimal twist. Line also cast ff and races through the guides with crisp action. The drag smoothness is easy to adjust and ensures you don't loose the prize catch. A little pricey but you get your moneys worth.
This reel is awesome, cast great,and very well made .
Super very fast shipping great reel just what I needed
I own 2 black max and they do not have this switch but you cannot beat the black or these reels for there price,but i must say i like this reel more because of this switch .one more for the max.fished this brand my whole life, even my dad and he was born in 1914
Caught two huge reds on the first two cast using Gulp new penny shrimp. Landed both with no trouble!!
