I had the opportunity to grab one of these reels in the 5600 model (the 5500/5600 size used to be the standard for bass fishing way-back-when) and wondered if anyone fishes this reel.  It has a 6.8:1 gear ratio and holds 135/12lb.  While it is heavier than many modern reels, older Ambassadeur reels are built like tanks and I got it for a great deal.  Plus this version has only been on the market since 2013 (older version was from 2005-2013) and is a nice gunmetal color which would add nice to my Abu collection if I decide to display it after I fish it.  Any input is helpful!  I figure maybe use it for jigs, spinnerbaits, and maybe cranks.  Thanks!
