Ambassadeur 7000 or Shimano Tekota 600?

Recommended Posts

Purchased myself a PENN Spinfisher V 4500ll back last year and have now made it my stripe setup and now I'm looking to grab a big game/catfish setup. I mainly fish my local river beside our dam. Power company allows us to fish down there and you can pretty much walk right up to the bottom of the dam and cast out. Seen some pretty huge catfish get pulled from there.


Was thinking about picking up a Shimano Tekota 600 and pair it with an Okuma Battlecat rod and some 65# power pro line. Then I got to looking at the Ambassadeur 7000 series reels. This will most likely become one of my main bait setups as the PENN setup will mainly be a lure setup for stripe. But in the rare event, I travel back down to FL to fish like I use to a lot, I want something that will be able to handle decent size fish if I ever happen to hook one.


Just looking at opinions. Appreciate it in advance.
