    how does this reel hold up for big catfish and is it a good buy at 60 dollars?
    and does anyone know if it has the bait clicker?

    The Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 6601 SSC3 is a good reel,but is a left handed model if I'm not mistaken. The 6600 SSC3 is the right handed version of the same reel. I have a good friend that uses the 6600 SSC3's exclusively and likes them real well. I assume that the $60 that you are talking about is for a used reel. If you can buy new ones for that it would be a heckua of good buy. Yes,these reels have bait clickers on them. Hope this helps you out.

    buy the 6000tc it has the bait clicker plus it holds more line and a better cat reel.

    I guess it's a personal preference,but if I have my choice between a Abu Garcia 6000 and a 6600 there's no way I'm taking the 6000.JMO

    if i am able to get a 6500 c3 for 60, that would be the reel i would go for. otherwise 6600 but i prefer 6500.
