    Would you care to tell us what went wrong with them?
    Could it be your like me and using them for more then they are made to handle?
    As I have went through a few reels. But then again they would last thought a few thousand fish before becoming junk,.
    Sure would like to know as I'm looking at buying one for the new Rod I'm having custom built.

    I find it ironic that you bought 25 of them before finding out they are junk!! :smile2:

    The BCX reels are not the Winches that the older Abu are, nor are they priced at that level either. They are fine in my opinon for channel cats but for Flats or Blues you need a 6500, not a BCX series.

    I have one of these reels as well, I have had it half of a year and my bait clicker just stopped working yesterday. I wouldnt say they are junk, but they arent the quality of the higher end reels they make either.

    I am going to fix mine as soon as I get the break down of the reel and take it apart to find the problem. Nothing is ever perfect!

    The 6600bcx is Abu's low end economy bait caster. For $45.00 it will not be the same quality as the 6500c3's. It is like comparing a Zebco 202 to an 808. I have never owned one and if I did, I would not expect it to have the same quality and performance as my 6500c3 and 6500 Pro Rocket.
