Great idea, poor execution
January 20, 2021
the other reviews stating constant maintenance are correct. This reel is unfortunately a hunk of junk breaks 1x a year, full of cheap plastic gears. Have to open and clean a watch like compartment full of sensitive parts just to keep it working. Does not live up to the hype in any way. Note that Dick's Sporting Goods no longer sells this product - it's that bad.
Prosmaybe freshwater carp/catfish liked the thumb bar
Consguaranteed to break

One of my buddies turned me on to this reel. Initially I didn't want to use it because I am terrible casting a conventional reel. But I was able to cast this one with a little practice. We use it to pitch to stripers with a med/fast 7' rod. I probably would not have purchased this reel if I didn't have an unused ugly tiger stick conventional rod.
Proseasy to cast conventional reel
ConsThis reel hasn't made me want to switch from my stradics.

Not good in saltwater
May 3, 2019
Constantly having to clean this reel when used in saltwater, sometimes it wont make a days worth of fishing with out the thumbar seizing. I had a c3 bought years ago and that holds up much better than this one. Disappointed...
ConsNot sealed, needs to be fully cleaned after every trip, not just rinsed.

Needs a lot of maintenance apparently
June 30, 2018
I've got a buddy and his father that are reel collector/hoarders. its ok to use but requires regular maintenance to work properly in a saltwater environment.
Prosworks well and casts far when maintained.
Consi don't like the thumb bars just like on some Daiwa's

Smooth and Powerful Reel
January 7, 2016
I've used Abu reels for years - the uc 6500. This 6600 is a faster retrieve and has a thumb bar. Not sure if I like that thumb bar for casting. I always feel like I might accidentally trip it when retrieving. It's been great for casting spoons in the surf. I have it paired with a St Croix 8 ft Tidemaster and the first time out caught several blue fish and a sea trout. We'll have to see how this holds up under harsh surf fishing conditions.
Prosvery smooth casting reel
Consthumb bar makes me nervous

Good mid-sized Abu reel
December 23, 2014
Size 5000 is a mid-size among Abu Reels. I would reccomend this one for thossing heavier lures , 1/2-2 oz
ProsVery reliable reel
Consyou will get 'birds nests' if you try to cast too light lure
