Excellent reel, smooth drag I have the 6500LC. I like it better than the Shimano Tekota.
The line counter stopped working after 4 years. I sent it in to Abu Garcia and they sent me a new one within a week!
Now that's service.

I have had 8 of these for 5 years, and use them exclusively for trolling; mostly idiot baits. I pull deep diving cranks at 1.4 mph and faster for hours at a time, and these reels hold up well. I've landed 8lbs striped bass, flat head catfish, a few muskie, boat loads of crappie, and the drag has never failed me.
They do the job well, but could do it better. Occasionally the line counter sticks, and if you pay out a lot of line before noticing having to reel it back in and start over is a pain. But this is easy to avoid by watching it count out the first 3-5 feet; if it doesn't stick in the first few feet it usually doesn't stick.
The line counter itself sticking out to the side of the body is awkward, and if I were buying again I would look very carefully at models with a different configuration.

5500LC Trolling Reel

this reel is perfect for my trolling needs. I mainly troll for walleye and smallmouth on the "Hollow" and it works really well. Has enough power to handle deep running cranks and the drag system is ideal. Nice for a change to be able to repeat my line back and lure depth consistently.
