Less than two hours!

I purchased a 6600 as a birthday present for myself, I owned it for a total of two hours! It was awful! Backlashed EVERY cast! I couldn't get the spool control to control but the smallest of weights, and even then it backlashed!
I returned it and got a 6600C4, I didn't want to spend that much money, but it was money well spent!
I'd heard the BCX line wasn't up to par but didn't want to believe it. I'm a believer now!

Great Catfishing Reel

I have three of these reels on a 8' Ugly Stick rod which I use for catfish. Although I haven't landed any 50+ pounders with them, I have caught some in the 30 lb. range and they worked fine. They have a good drag and bait alert if you want it. One of my reels was actually my dad's that he bought around 30 years ago and I'm still using it today.

I've only had the reel for one season but it didn't let me down throwing 1.5-3 oz lures all season for muskies. I can't speak for it's longevity and as to how well it will hold up against repeated battles with muskies, but it's worked so far. Was using 60 lb power pro and never experienced any overruns or backlashes.

Replaced quality for quantity

I own 7 C series reels and have used Abu reels for yrs & yrs and never had major issues except the changing of the level wind gear after yrs of abuse, which is normal.. With that being said... I purchased 2 of the 6600 BCX reels about two months ago.. Reel #1 lasted 2 fishing trips, gears scream when casting and the handle bent when reeling in a 6# red. Took it apart to find plastic parts inside! I had to look at the cover to make sure I had bought a Abu reel.. The second reel the level wind lasted till the 4th trip and I'm figuring it lasted that long because reel #1 was my primary reel till it acted up. The overall ergonomics of the reel is pretty good, they did cast good when it worked, the gears in one reel scream and the other gave out, i rated the ease of maintenance low due to plastic parts. I will go back to using my 10 yr old faithful C series.
I am truly disappointed in the quality of these reels.
