    Does anyone have one of these reels or have used one. it's an Abu Garcia ambassadeur 5601ab(anit-backlash)
    I bought it at a fishing show last month for $50 with a M/H rod. I think I got a pretty good deal on it. I've always used spinner reels, I bought a shakespear baitcast reel last year and kept getting backlass. I'm hopeing that this new reel will do me good. It's got a breaking mechanism in it that when the line goes slack it will stop spinning off line.
    Do you think I got a good deal on the price?
    Any reviews on this reel?

    not sure about the 5601, I just got a 6000. Gonna be my first bait caster.

    From what I have read, the most important thing, is practice practice practice.
