Very Nice Reel!
I think this reel is worth every penny I spent. It costs a little more, but it is totally amazing. This reel makes for a very good musky and pike reel.

Best reel I have ever used
Plenty of muskie stopping power, fits in my hand perfect, smoothest reel ever used. High quality craftsmanship. Casts further than any other reel ever used with very little effort to get the lure out a mile. I just did a side by side comparison with this C4 and a Shimano Calcutta and the Shimano does not stand a chance. I just ordered more C4 5600 models to outfit all of my rods, I'm putting all my other reels in the shed.
With the different model sizes I am allowed to match the reels with the size of rod, lure size, and everything in order to make my equipment as efficient as possible without have a huge pile of different brand rods and reels.
Best smoothest reel on the market period and I will be using this reel forever. " its a rocket although they don't call it the rocket" and affordable too.

Nothing Else On My Rods
I have used Abu Garcia reels for going on 25 years. My favorite is my 6500 C3 on a Lamiglas Northwest Special with15lb mono. I fish a clear water river for lunker stripers. The C3 has been a workhorse, at times I have dropped it in the sand, I have had to swim for it 3 times after a lunker pulled it in the river, with a rinse of fresh water after every trip, it is ready to go again. I can't wear it out. I also love my 5600 C4 when casting top water. Nothing casts like a C4. I have landed 100+ stripers ranging from 25 inches up to 48 inches on these two reels, flawless. I wouldn't buy anything else.
