Customer Reviews

Comments: just purchased the record 6600 and I am very impressed. I needed a reel for bigger baits (1-4oz swimbaits mostly). I have not really put in time with a round reel for many years. I have been fishing low-pro baitcasters for a long time but I wanted a reel for bigger game. The record's specs looked good, its made in Sweden and it looks nice. this thing is smooth and powerful. im still trying to adjust to holding it considering im used to palming a low-pro but that's nothing. Its a Swedish made tank. all solid die-cast aluminum (frame and sideplates) and all HPCR bearings(7+1). Honestly you can feel the quality just by pressing the thumb bar and reengaging the spool by turning the handle. The tolerances feel tight and very well machined. Highly recommended!!! I hope to add an HC model soon.
