I have the 5500 C3, and I use it for most everything......from jig and plastics to cranks and spinnerbaits.....its a bit slow for buzzbaits but otherwise a good all around reel.

Its actually a good reel for all of those. Its best for lures over 1/4 or especially 3/8th oz. Millions of bass have been landed on the design, its 'old reliable' so to speak.
Selling live waterdogs for less since 2005.

Flipping and pitching jigs or throwing heavy spinners is what I use mine for .

I have a trusty and well used C3 5500 that I use for throwing my C-Rig. Makes a little nose compared to todays baitcasters, but it still gets the job done every time out.

I use the 4600 c4 for all my fishing. I fill them with 15lb. or 20lb green trilene big game line. They work well for me. Very dependable reels.

Buy a newer C3 abu reel.They have a 6 pin centrifugal weight system instead of only having 2 weights like the old ones had.

Use mine for Fluke fishing.
I prefer low profile baitcasters for fresh water. Just a little lighter for me.
