As I was growing up I gave my self a choice a Penn or Abu Garcia I finally decided to go with AB. Over the years Abu Garcia has proven to me what a great reels it is. I hope my new 5600 does the same as it has the past years for me.
I would recommend this to a friend!

My son and I have a lot of Abu and even though this reel is not made in Sweden it fishes like it is. The STX out performs any other reel in its price range

I use them in South Louisiana to fish Reds and Specs. I bought two STX6600 and so far they have been able to withstand the abuse of reds without skipping a beat. For the price and performance its worth the value. I will be glad to check in again later in the year. The retrieve is smooth and solid, once fish is on the drag is steady and not jumpy giving you a solid and constant fighting drag. They survived the spawn which is more than I can say for my last two. I would recommend them to anyone and have. I am looking forward to outfitting my boat with a few more.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Disappointed!
Posted April 30, 2014
I got this reel to use at paylakes and at first I loved it. I fish 3-4 days out of the week and have always used Garcia gear but after this I'm scratching my head. I got to use it 3 days on day 2 I started noticing a slight "pop" where it seemed like it had slipped and I wrote it off as something to do with the new button and
Maybe needing "broke in"..? Yep I knew better in the back of my head but didn't want to admit the 100$$ reel I was holding was junk.. Last night it slipped agin in a tournament but casted just fine.... it was a 1 pole only tourney and the rules are fish what you bring after about 10 min in the water my pole doubled over and something big was on I went to start the retrieve and it was just slipping.. Some piece in the worm gear gave out and it wouldn't do anything but pop not even trying to bring in the would be winning fish!! You can imagine the disappointment in me!!! I lost a $$$12,00.00 tournament to a fish that was 5.4 lbs! And only on my third trip to the paylake???!!! What is wrong with this!!?? Mr. Abu please fix this problem!! I've been a very loyal customer for years and years and have spent and had others spend ALOT of money on your products I don't want a replacement part because its just going to happen agin and agin with this reel I'm afraid. The box said "For Life", not 2 trips to a pond. Once agin PLEASE help me out here I've always treated my reels like diamonds I clean/oil them after every trip and put reel covers on them, I keep a light drag to even make them last longer. This is the first bad piece of equiptment I've gotten from you and I hope you do something to change design and help me out! Sorry for complaining but I'm hurt right now an missed out on a good hunk of money! I can send you a video or whatever you need so you can see what I'm talking about. Thank you in advance as I'm sure you'll treat me right as your products always have.
