I am using the 10,000I Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Big
Game reel for surf fishing. Like all the other products from Abu Garcia, that I own, it is well engineered and works great. The spool tensioner
is wonderfully adjustable and the star wheel drag
is up to the task. Many surf casting fishermen use
a reel without level wind but the 10,000I does a great
job of distance casting with the ease of retrieval of
a level wind reel. My friends kid me about the plain
black reel color. I tell them that the color of the reel has nothing to do with catching fish, besides the reel
is in "stealth mode".

Worm Gear

I would've easily given this reel 5 stars if not for this one issue. I own several Abu Garcia reels. They are some of the most reliable and sturdy reels I've ever used. I recently purchased this 7000i HSN because of AG's reputation and my history with their products.
When I started spooling this reel with 20# mono, I noticed the line was spooling unevenly from right to left. I filled the spool and figured after a few casts the line would eventually even out across the spool. But, it did not, after examining the line guide's travel closely, it appears that the line guide is not traveling far enough to the left side of the spool, causing the line to lay unevenly and pile on the right side, I believe the problem is caused by the worm gear itself. I would like Abu to adjust or replace the necessary parts to correct this. Aside from this issue, I'm pleased with the smoothness and casting that one would expect from the AG reels. I am posting this review not intending to bash Abu But to state my lack of confidence in THIS particular reel, at this time. My other AG reels have been flawless for YEARS. I believe this is an easy fix. I would like to hear from them on this matter.

Needless to say I was very excited when I purchased my 9000i. I have had a bit of a problem casting out, as did 2 of my friends who are good fishermen. The darn thing kept birdnesting on us...finally I decided to switch the type of line and rod length and it seems to be doing better.
I'm satisfied!

Level wind keeps jamming

I have owned many Abu Garcia reels but this one is a disappointment. The reel is a great reel itself with a smooth drag and all but the level wind on mine keeps getting stuck. When I bought it it was well oiled and I took it out to do some catfish fishing but when I was reeling in a catfish the levelwind kept getting stuck on the right side of the reel and the line was getting piled up as a reeled in so I just used my 7000 that day. So I thought I should lubricate the levelwind and wormgear with the Abu Garcia reel oil and it was fixed ( so I thought) and when I was fishing it got stuck again do right now it's just sitting in my rod rack. I don't know if I did something wrong or if it was a factory defect but Im disappointed with this product. Would've been a great reel if the levelwind was fixed.
