for $65.00 i'd jump all over that!!! IMO I think all the abu's are great reels.I don't have the 6600CL but a friend of mine has one and loves it!!!I've got a couple of the 6000's and 6500's and love them!!!
The 6600CL is a good reel. They cast great and are very smooth. If the reel is marked with a CL, CS, CA, or CI, the reel will have a levelwind. If the reel is marked with CT, it will be a none levelwind. Almost all "T" reels are used in casting distance competition or surf fishing because of the added distance you get without a levelwind. The only draw back to the reel is the gear ratio, 6.3:1, but thats not really much of a problem. They can be changed if you don't like that gear ratio. You can crank a little harder with the 5.3:1 gears and they are stronger. At the Walmart here in town, the reels go for $79.95 each. If you can buy them for $65.00, I believe I would. Good luck.
Thanks for the info, I had no idea what the letters behine the numbers meant.The old boy that I bought the reels from, knew that I was big into catfishing, he has gotten himself into a money bind. I got both reels for $65.00.
I have one of the orange ones, i got it from walmart for 80 bucks. The clicker sucks and has never been very loud. It comes off the track when i turn it on sometimes. Even though its my least favorite abu i have, it seems to be lucky, i caught my biggest flathead and my biggest blue with it last year. Handled them pretty well. 65 for both would be a good deal.
