C3 6500

This is a good reliable reel .I use mine for catfishing paired up with an Ugly Stick Heavy Action Catfish bait cast rod. I have caught dozens of catfish with it so far, and not one problem from the reel.

Smooth reel with great looking upgrades!!

t’s been several years since I’ve bought new Ambassadeurs. I believe it’s been about 10/12 yrs since I bought the last 4 Ambassadeur C 6500’s. I saw the new upgrades and knew it was time to buy new ones again! Absolutely love how the blackened pieces look on the reel. And the bent handle also looks great!

Must have catfishing reel

Awesome catfish reel. Though, durable, great catfish reel. Love it! don't buy imitations, go ahead and spend the money and start with it. This is the one!
