    The difference is 100. Just subtract 6500 from 6600. Just kidding. I think it has to do with line capacity,bearings,and other stuff. As for the BCX,it's junk. GO for a 6500 c3.

    ABU 6500c3- carbon matrix drag, push button spool release, 3 bearings, made in Sweden.

    ABU 6600BCX- multi-disc drag, thumb bar spool release, 4 bearings, made in China.

    Those are the main differences I see, oh and around a $30.00 difference in price too.

    I know people who have had alot of trouble with the bcx series.

    If you can get a 6600 that is not a bcx you should be fine.

    Other wise I would stick with the 6500

    The basic 6500c3 is silver and gray. Other 6500 series models carry different colors. For instance the 6500 TC is burgundy. The TCCF 'Blue Cat' was blue. There is a 6500 TCCF 'Green Cat' coming out in green. Ive seen lime colors, purples, oranges, reds, greens and blues. They're ALL good! :wink::smile2::wink:

    i bought the 6600bcx at walmart then some reading and found that bass pro doesn't carry them and does not plan on it. they are made in china not sweden for a reason most likely cheaper parts. and like it was said for 30.00 more you get a proven reel. by the way i brought the reel back to walmart and went down and got a 6500c3.
