"Well I have used and owned since my first ABU 7000 reel in 1978 both the 7000, 6000.c in 1972 and currently own 5 ABU reels. I just cannot get away from them. I still have the 1st 7000 and it still works. But show me a new model like the new 7000i and I am hooked!. I fish for our New Zealand Quinnat Salmon in the snow fed river mouths and cast in the surf ( which can get a bit rugged) and have never had a problem with my ABU experiences in all these years they are just great well made and engineered reels. When salmon fishing in the high surf we need to get distance to get over the inshore waves and - you get it- This is where the ABU 7000 reels come into there own with relative ease on my Low reel Mount 12' rod. means we have the lift to keep the fight ing Salmon on top of the inshore waves when we land them.
On ocasions when we have a fairly quiet and flat surf I use my 6' baitcaster with a 6500 cs Rocket

My wonderful daughter bought this reel for fathers day some years ago and I have fished it from Alaska to Costa Rica. The 7000(C) is a beautiful dark royal blue enameled large handled bait caster that casts like a dream for plugging as well as a heavy jigging reel for grouper and other delicious bottom dwellers. I have caught salmon to 38 pounds; dog tooth snapper to 55 pounds and tarpon over 100 pounds with this reel. The drag is excellent. This reel has held up well over the years and in fact still looks almost like new. I have no experience with the "Big Game" edition but prefer this edition and am enjoying my daughters gift to me.

I have used the Ambassadeur reels for years and I don't believe in the reinvention of the wheel. Considering I semi retired my Garcia Amb. 9000 (because it was my grandfathers) I still love to use it. I was a little nervous on a replacement considering the new ways companies have a way in making their New Product Lines look good and flashy,but sacrifice the integrity of workman ship. I truly believed my new 7000 series would be a good reel, but I did not expect it to be just as good if not better than the Gar. 9000. I really like the way it casts, not to mention the lever is much better than the button on accidental depressions, they just don't exist anymore. The levelwind is great too,even though I still find myself trying to guide my line. You guys did a great job with this reel. Thank you for not being on of those "Looks Good so Just Sell It Companies". The neat thing about the 7000 series is that my son will eventually have this one, and an old semi retired Garcia 9000 that still work 20 yrs. from now.

Exceeded my expectations

I purchased this reel for flathead fishing in Iowa, and once a year the family and I go fishing off the shore of Siesta Key Beach in Florida. The reel casts very nice off the shore. The first big catch was a 100 lbs black tip shark. It took no time at all to reel in with the nice drag system of this reel, I had approx. 280 yards of 80 lbs Power Pro. I was afraid of the shark possibly spooling me, so I set the drag and brought him in quick! I am now thinking of a 10000i just for more line capacity.
Very pleased with this reel, amazing Fresh/Salt water reel!
