    I think any reel made by Ambassadeur is a good reel. I used a 6000 for a while and I thought it was great. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I have been beefing up my arsenal lately and only use a couple of Abus now. I'm switching to Peen reels for line capacity and brute strength. I still think that the Abus are great for lighter applications and for fishing when you make lots of casts.

Your 6000 still spinning, used er today, hope my penn is treating you good, and cetching fish. :0a23: you should try out a Big game 10000 big beafy and smooooth (i hear :crying: ) best of both worlds.

    I like the Abu 6000's just as much as the 6500's. (however I really LOVE the 7000's) But I am a big fan of the red 6000's.

    Brandon, glad you are enjoying the reel. I have really beefed up my arsenal since then. Got the Penns loaded with 80 pound test line. Heavy action Cat Maxx rods. Looking for Mr. 100!

    I still have a few Abus and use them from time to time. I'd love to have a 10000. Purty expensive tho.

    Hook a hawg!

    My dad has 2 6000's but im the one that gets te most use out of em . Along with 2 6500s 1 being mine and a couple 5500s we use for everykind of fishing

    We have the gold c3 600s and i really dont know when they made them but they are one hell of a reel . I prefer them over the 6500s for some reason probably because i've only caught catfish on the 6000s my brand new 6500 hasnteven been tested by a fish yet :crying:

    I have a couple of 6000's that have tangled with flatheads over 40lbs. The reels performed great, I wouldn't hesitate to take on bigger fish with them. The 6000 is also one of the easiest reels I have ever casted, I would recomend them to anyone wanting to learn how to use a baitcaster. One of my 6000's is over 10 years old and I have never had to replace anything on it. It's all original and performed flawlessly on a 42lb flat this year.
