    I just looked at some schematics.. on those, and the SSC3, has the "dog" used for anti reverse..
    The C3 uses the IAR Bearing,(instant anti reverse), a clutch, or one way bearing..for anti reverse.
    Both are effective,but, a lot of folks, like to have the IAR,,For Catfishing, IMO, either works well.

    If it's a 6600 series, it has the "Thumbar" spool release. Versus,, the push button type on the others.
    Drags, Gearing, clickers, etc, are otherwise the same, other than, colored sideplates..


    May be some other stuff, but, there's a bunch of models out there..,, G

    Sounds like you got a good deal..!! and, I'd use them till they gave me some trouble, then upgrade them to what you like, if needed.. They can be mixed and mingled to be whatever you want!!!
